Glebe 3-2 Punjab United
It’s played 3 won 3 in the League for Glebe after a 3-2 win against Punjab United on Friday night.
The league leaders went ahead in the 12th minute when Matt Parsons reacted quickest to a cleared corner to fire home low and hard.
Punjab were soon level though. Harry Main cut in from the left and drove the ball through the keepers legs for the equaliser.
Early in the second half Glebe regained the advantage. Jamie Philpot got on the end of a through ball and finished well for his 6th goal of this young season.
Glebe should have gone further ahead as Charlie Penny twice came close but found Max Ovenden in the visitors goal in impressive form.
The hosts were to pay for the missed opportunities on 68 minutes when Paul Vines rose highest to thump a header into the top corner. 2-2.
Glebe again went searching for the winner, and got it too when Ryan King-Elliot tapped in at the far post following a superbly driven cross.
That was to be the last action of an exciting Friday night game and with the 3 points Glebe strengthen their position at the top of the table.
Talking to the Club media after the game, Glebe boss Harry Hudson was : “I thought we fully deserved the 3rd goal and the 3 points. The boys stuck at what we asked them to do today, we created so many opportunities especially in the second half. We must have had 4 or 5 clear cut chances to make it 3-1”
“I actually didn’t see much of their 2nd goal but from a throw in we should be doing better. The Punjab goalkeeper has had one of the best performances I’ve seen from a goalie in a long time”
“All I can say is I’m proud of the boys and we avoided the frustration that affected our structure on Saturday in the game. We kept believing in what we were doing and we got what we deserved with the 3 points. It’s really important we roll it into the next game.”
