Garabed Palasyan beats his marker to the ball to power in our second goal.

The reserves got back to winning ways this morning with a good 4-0 win over Singaporean visitors Bungler United at New Home Park.

Krsto Grubić opened the scoring in only the second minute, but it took another forty minutes before Brook Street doubled their lead through Garabed Palasyan.

However the fans had to wait only a further sixty seconds before Fraser Carragher pounced on the ball as Phil Mullally’s header was spilled by the United keeper.

Brook Street were in complete control, and killed the game completely ten minutes after the re-start when Jake MacConnechy slammed home a penalty after Andrew Cleary was upended in the box.

“We played quite well and managed to adapt to the conditions”, said Marcus. “Getting the early goal helped, but we didn’t really make our dominance count until the very end of the half”.

The coach was however pleased by the performance of Andrew Cleary on his return from injury.

“Andrew did very well, despite the conditions which should have worked against him”, he said. “He also came through the match unscathed, so we’ll have to wait and see if he travels to Finland on Friday”.

The win will give the whole squad a much-needed lift ahead of Saturday’s home match with EK Tuggers as they look end their three-match losing streak.
