Inter White manager Matt Keston was brutally honest after the game, ''I am aware that of our squad of 14 yesterday, 6 were not feeling their best health-wise and for sure that impacted our performance but in the end yesterday we got what we deserved and that was 0 points. It's the first performance I’ve been really unhappy with for a long time, whereas with previous results we lost we had been unlucky, this was just not good enough.''
We started nervously as Latin Sports pressed high from the start and within 5 minutes we were 1-0 down with a very uncharacteristic mistake from our defence, suicidal mistakes like that we haven’t made for a long time and it was an early blow.
We were lucky really to only be losing 1-0 at halftime as we continued to give the ball away needlessly and Roy Konfino had to make some great saves after a number of bad mistakes from the whole team.
After a rare very angry team talk at halftime from Keston, we came out in the second half much much better and pressed Latin Sports from the start looking for the equaliser. Nati Ajnwojner was so unlucky with a shot from 30 yards that hit the bar, but on the 64th minute, our equaliser came as a good ball in from Jayden Youngleson found a good headed finish from top scorer Alex Branum.
We then took full control and pressed for the winner; Latin Sports looked very much dead for 15 minutes as we created a number of chances but couldn’t finish them. Latin Sports then started to come at us in the final 10 minutes and hit the bar.
Players then were fatigued from sickness and got injured, meaning Keston was forced to play a couple of people out of position. Annoyingly this undid us in the final minutes as we allowed their top player to hold onto the ball for far too long, found a pass-through and they made it 2-1.
It was probably was offside but was our own fault for not breaking down the passage of play as we grew tired.
They then scored in the last minute as we pushed everyone forward searching for the equaliser and were caught on the break. A win would have made our table position a lot healthier which is why it was such a frustrating performance.
