Goals from William Tantucci and Wolff Porezag secured a 2-0 win for the Silence at The Great Silence Arena on Sunday.
Warren made 4 changes from the round six 4-1 win over SILENCE and was rewarded with abt´s third away defeat of the season.
“It was one of those nights where it looked like we can play for two hours and not score a goal,” Warren said.
“We didn’t have enough urgency in the first half. We were weak in some departments and we paid for that.
“I have no regrets over selection, I regret we lost the game.”

Warren’s opposite number Julio Gorriti was delighted with a strong display from his side, who looked far more cohesive, despite making four changes.

“It was a strong game, with good solidarity. We moved the team at the start with different players and the answer from them was fantastic.
“We played a very good game and is very important for the difficult matches ahead.”

It took eleven minutes to get into the match but once they did there was no stopping them.
Glenn Munn-Giddings opened the scoring as he made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper’s reach. Goatsemodime Magolego and Luka Burns both hit two before the break.

John Ryan chipped it past the keeper after slashing through the home side’s central defence after 38 minutes, and a defensive blunder enabled Vasilis Bushaway make it 0-3 a minute later.

Luka Burns leveled things off before Goatsemodime Magolego fired in from an acute angle to give the home side a 3-2 lead.

Coach Malcolm Warren then made the mistake of the match by substituting himself and bringing on youngster Stephen Kealey in his standard postion, as center forward.

“I didn´t want to make the same mistake as last week and stay on too long and not have enough power at the end”, admitted Warren, “but maybe I should have tried to hold on to the result instead of throwing in another forward”.

The visitors levelled the score at 3-3 as László Presser struck home from a rebound off the crossbar.

Warren said afterwards, “That was a match we dominated and should have won”.

Lyle MacDonald and Calvin Tonge the scorers making it 2-1 and 3-1 and Abel Akpom and Vasilis Bushaway increasing the lead to 4-2 and 5-2.
As the visitor made it 5-3, quarter of an hour from the end, the lads had already changed down two gears andwere happy with the result as it was.
