De Montfort University (DMU) men’s 1st futsal team made it two out of two, under a new head coach,  after beating the University of Worcester (UoW) 6-4.

After Loughborough University’s no-show the previous week, DMU obtained an automatic win.

This time, their opposition made it to Leicester for DMU to play their first match at home. 

1st half:

A positive start by DMU left UoW struggling to get out of their own half. A couple of early chances by DMU were good enough to test the goalkeeper who made one particularly good save, low and accurate to keep out the Silverbacks.

But it wasn’t long before they found the back of the net in the first three minutes. A good one-two pass combination and a fantastic finish high into the corner of the net resulted in the first goal of the game.

An early substitute for Worcester quickened the pace and turned the heat up a notch up for the visitors. He proved to be a brilliant change and his motivation to go forward across the wing gave Worcester a couple of good chances down the left-hand side.

Soon there was more end-to-end play, with the UoW goalkeeper making a Manuel Neuer-like save, only of course on a much smaller scale; it was effective none the less as he came flying out of his box to sweep up the ball.

Some showboating at the back for Worcester saw possession lost, and a couple of more goals fly in for DMU, including a simple tap-in by Sangha.

The quality of play by both sides was fantastic, with Worcester’s no.9, the substitute who came on, attempting to score with an overhead kick but hitting the crossbar as a result.

With DMU gathering more momentum, a stunning goal scored from range by Nanna gave the home side a comfortable lead of 6-1 at half time. Good defensive work and quick thinking in closing down the opposition, whilst finishing off most of their chances at the other end, gave DMU the edge. 

2nd half:

A change of goalkeeper for Worcester was made for the second half of the match. A lot more vocal and commanding at the back, he bellowed out orders to keep his players alert as they often faltered in the first half to concede easily.

However, it was DMU who seemed to switch off for the second half. They were kettled in their own half, it was the Silverbacks goalkeeper, Miguel who kept them in the game after a couple of early chances for Worcester.

It was Worcester no.9 who, once again, was a real spark for the side, putting DMU under a lot of pressure.

Soon after, the visitors pulled a couple of goals back, with DMU not having a real goal scoring opportunity in the first five minutes.

It wasn’t long before DMU did score, only for it to be ruled out. The ball was argued to have been out of play, as the Worcester players complained to the referee of it going over the by-line, in the lead up to the goal.

The referee agreed and the goal was ruled out, which certainly irked the homeside.

Worcester played much better in the second-half, hardly letting DMU get a touch on the ball. As the final minutes of the game wound down on the clock, tensions rose high as words were exchanged amongst players.

But it was DMU who pushed aside the visitors, regardless of a good spirited fight by Worcester in the second-half.

Final Score: De Montfort University Men’s 1st Team 6 – 4 University of Worcester Men’s 2nd Team .

This is how the table looks after a win for DMU sees them sitting in 4th position.
