The reserves fought back from losing the opening goal to defeat Genghis Khan followers 4-1 in Jordan earlier this evening.

The home side had opened the scoring in the twenty-first minute through Romanian midfielder Erik Lászlai, but Lloyd Stephen levelled eleven minutes later and Andrew Oswald fired us in front four minutes before the break.

But for an outstanding save by home keeper Mansoor Al-Dahhan, Nemanja Janković would have increased Brook Street’s lead in the fifty-first minute, but it served notice that the Scots were meaning business in the second half.

That third goal duly arrived just after the hour mark, and there was little surprise that it came from the boot of Andrew Cleary.

Despite the scoreline, Mansoor Al-Dahhan was in inspired form and once again denied Nemanja in the sixty-fourth minute, but he was powerless to prevent Brook Street adding a fourth when Phil Mullally got in close to net in the seventy-fourth minute to wrap up the scoring.

“The boys did well after losing the opening goal”, said Brook Street coach Marcus Lövman afterwards. “We took our chances when they arose, and but for their keeper we could have possibly have won by more. The lad was playing a blinder, and the saves from the two free-kicks were breathtaking”.

Once again, the squad came through the game unscathed so Marcus will have a full squad to select from for Saturday’s home match against Vines Cross.
