The pick of the bunch… Eyüphan Toga volleys us into the lead against Real Forfar.

Brook Street stormed to their fifth consecutive win in yesterday’s Angus derby at New Home Park by defeating Real Forfar 4-1.

The Loons had taken a shock lead in the twelfth minute, but a hat-trick form on form striker Eyüphan Toga and a second half strike from Abel Soffia ensured that the points would be staying in Monifieth.

While happy at the outcome and the overall performance, Brook Street coach Marcus Lövman afterwards expressed some concern that yet again his side had given away the opening goal.

“It’s all good and well that we have the firepower up top to give teams a goal of a start and be able to turn it around, but sooner or later we’re going to come up against a side that gets the goal and shuts up shop. We can’t afford to be so sloppy at the back, because sooner or later we’re going to be caught out, and that’s something we’ll be working on with the players in training”.

Turning back to the good points of the performance, Marcus said, “Eyüphan is on fire at the moment and his second goal was simply outstanding. He caught it as sweet as you like and gave their keeper absolutely no chance”.

He continued, “He’s come in for some stick in the past, so to see him banging in the goals and now being the division’s top scorer is particularly pleasing”.

He then went on to thank the fans for the backing they gave the team. “They turned out in large numbers and we had our biggest home gate of the season so far today. We all really appreciated the backing and it really gave the players a real lift. It was important that we got the win today as it gives us the psychological edge as we head up to Forfar next weekend”.

Brook Street’s fifth win on the bounce saw them move onto fifteen points and pull back another two goals on second place Kessler’s Eleven who themselves defeated Vines Cross 2-0 at home. Carbrain FC remain out in front having put last week’s ‘blip’ behind them to thump Airth Castle Rovers 5-1 at Ravenswood. In the final match EK Tuggers ended their four-game win-less sequence with a 3-0 away win over -*FC BARCELONA*-; Barca having now only taken a single point from their last five games.

So it may be “as you were” as far as league positions go but the top three look to be opening a gap, there now being a five point gap between ourselves and fourth place Vines Cross. At the foot of the table, the biggest winners of the weekend were EK Tuggers who were the only side bag three points, however it couldn’t be tighter with only four points separating Vines Cross in fourth place and Real Forfar in eighth.
