Another strange game this one. Despite having the lion's share of possession and territory again, an unfortunate return of the pre-Christmas defensive cock-ups cost the Visitors dear. The problem being that of course not only do these errors cost goals they galvanise the Opposition which provides belief and in turn makes it tougher for us offensively. Having said that Villa were not too great in that department either on this outing! On the flip side, Rustington were clinical in their finishing and solid in defense.
The Villa goal came courtesy, once again, of top scorer Nick Boutal who now moves on to 20 in all competitions. A mention too for Man of the Match George Hatton, who although unable to find the net on this occasion, worked really really hard for the whole game and was always looking to get a shot away.
The Villains now move on to Tuesday's Cup Semi Final with Bosham, being held at Steyning Town FC, 7.30pm ko,
