Beverley Town Reserves were well beaten as they lost 3-1 to Driffield Evening Institute at the Norwood Recreation Ground.
The defeat means Town’s second string have lost their last eight consecutive games in a run that stretches back to August. As a result, they are just one place of the bottom in the Humber Premier League One.
Saturday’s performance while not bad lacked the cutting edge needed to get something from the game. Falling behind early their troubles got worse after conceding a free kick on the edge of their own box.
Former town player Richard Gibson stepped up curling the ball around the wall to double the visors lead with less than half-hour on the clock.
Town responded quickly and forced a chance as Rob Northen went through one on one with the keeper. However, his effort was kept out by the Driffield keeper.
Despite enjoying large spells of the play Beverley let themselves down in the final third. The crossing was poor and often decision making was questionable as they chased the game.
Driffield Rarely Troubled By Beverley Town Reserves
Driffield, on the other hand, showed a lot of composure on the ball and rarely looked troubled controlling the tempo the game.
While town did pull back a goal Driffield ended any hope of a fightback when they added their third.
If Beverley are to take any positives out of this match it will be that they were not outplayed. They created chances but just failed to convert them.
Had they shown more composure, used their set plays better and also taken their chances this result could have gone the other way.
Town now has a week off before they return to action when they face a daunting task. Table-toppers Kingfields FC who are unbeaten will be heading to the Norwood Recreation Ground.
Having lost just once all season, Town will need to produce something special to get anything from the game.
