Canterbury Hockey Club skipper Michael Farrer believes victory against Cannock is imperative
Canterbury Hockey Club skipper
Michael Farrer says Saturday’s visit of third-placed Cannock is a
must-win game after their six-game winning streak in the National
Premier Division was unceremoniously ended at struggling
The city club missed the chance
to draw level with leaders Beeston – who lost at Brooklands – but
remain five points ahead of Cannock – who also lost – as they
slipped to a 2-1 defeat in London on Sunday.
Farrer (pictured) admitted: "It
is disappointing to lose to a team that was near the bottom of the
table. We were lacklustre in the first half and they sat back and
then caught us twice on the break.
"We put them under a lot of
pressure and we had about 80% of the possession but we couldn’t
find the goal. It was a bit like Celtic v Barcelona.
"If the game had gone on another
10 minutes then we would probably have gone on and won, with the
amount of pressure we were putting them under."
Cannock visit Polo Farm at 1pm
on Saturday and Farrer said: "It’s a big game.
"If we’d won last weekend then I don’t think we’d have
been too disappointed with a draw against Cannock but as it is,
it’s a game we have
to go and win to gain momentum."
