WILTSHIRE LEAGUE: Wroughton hopeful of home comforts
WROUGHTON joint manager Stef Kuczynski is longing for home comforts after his side drew 2-2 with SKS Blyskawica in their 11th away game out of 11 this season.
Kuczynski & Co have yet to play at the Weir Field this term as they wait for the local authorities to do some much-needed repair work on the playing surface, and their form has suffered on the road with nine defeats coming from their first 10 matches.
They halted that slump with a point at Blyskawica, surrendering a 2-0 lead in the process, and now Kuczynski is desperate to get back on home turf.
“It’s been 11 games now and we still haven’t played a match at home, which is ridiculous. We’re still waiting for the parish council to get the thing sorted,” he said.
“We were told something about waiting for it to rain because they need to get a big roller on it, but nothing has happened. It’s going to get to a point where we’ve played all our away games and not played once at home. I’ve got a meeting with Chiseldon, because they’ve pulled out of their league and we might be able to play one or two games there. We’ll have to wait and see.”
Sam Slater’s 20-yard drive put Wroughton in front on Saturday, while Blyskawica missed a penalty just before half-time.
After the interval Danny Billing doubled Wroughton’s lead but they couldn’t hang on and the hosts struck twice in the final half-hour to level the scores.
“It was pretty even and a draw was probably the fair result, but we were 2-0 up again and had to settle for a point, we chucked it away,” said Kuzcynski. “We were ahead 1-0 at Ludgershall and lost 3-2, we were ahead against Shrewton and lost 4-3, it’s becoming a trend but we were happy to get another point.”
