excellent display in atrocious conditions. Our work ethic was incredible & the team richly deserved the victory. At 1-0 down you thought it could be a bad start to the New Year but Witton stuck to their game plan & deservedly went in at half-time in the lead.
They equalised and went ahead with a bit of a soft goal tbh but with the move of the match Tom Owens scored his second.
As Wheels said above "Will Jones scored a screamer" with a volley from 20 yards which started the party amongst the Albion faithful.
MOM - all of them, great effort after two tough games over the Xmas period & special mention to the match officials who refereed the game very well & kept it going.
It was a great afternoon out & I'm pleased for all the Wittoners present. We're still unbeaten in 2018.

Thought Witton were excellent today. Despite going a goal down early on, they showed they were up for it. Winning good majority of 50/50 balls and working hard.
Don't think Alty selected the right tactics today and it cost them. Trying to play balls round the back and long balls to their wide men on both flanks was not going to work on a pitch so wet.
If they had gone a little more direct they might have given us more problems.
Super finishes from Witton and great work rate.
For me Prince was my man of the match !!

I don't go to many away games but goodness me I'm glad I went today!! That both teams put on a game like that in those atrocious conditions and with the absolute quagmire at the covered end was a credit to all (I really thought it could have been abandoned). We were superb, immense, brilliant and deserved the win every player to a man was man of the match for me. A crowd of over a thousand and plenty of Wittoners in fine voice made it a very special away trip indeed!! COME ON THE ALBIOOON!!
