Wigan Robin Park 1 v 2 AFC Liverpool - Match Result

After Wednesday nights’ impressive win against Chadderton in the VODKAT League Challenge Cup, it was back to league action today against an impressive Wigan side.

In what turned out to be a dominant display from the reds, AFC enjoyed the Lions share of posession in both halves,and can only be disappointed they didnt score more.
It was AFC who opened the scoring though, with a fine goal from Dave Ojapah on 37 mins, after receiving the ball in the box after some clever play by the impressive Todd Bamber.
Wigan didnt really trouble the AFC defence until after half time, when a rare mistake by Coyne let the robins in, and  the scoring was levelled by Williams on 51 mins.
The game then continued in the same vein, with AFC making all the runs, and helped by the wind, some long range efforts from Torpey, but were frustrated by some resolute defending from Wigan.
Determined not to go home with a share of the points though, AFC continued to press, and after a goal mouth scramble in the 90th minute, the ball fell to Bloxham, who blasted the ball past the Wigan keeper to make the final score 2-1 to the reds.
