Women play out stalemate with Maidenhead

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth


AFC Bournemouth women played out a goalless draw away at Maidenhead on Sunday afternoon. 

Despite chances for either side, the deadlock couldn't be broken and both teams had to settle for a point at York Road. 

The draw leaves the Cherries a point off top spot, with leaders Cheltenham still to play before the end of the season. 

Following the game, manager Steve Cuss gave his thoughts to afcb.co.uk

"It was a really good game and a good advert for the National League.

"It was two very competitive sides, both looking to win the game and both very strong defensively. As a result, chances were few and far between and I can't argue that a draw was probably a fair result.

"We couldn't quite find that cutting edge to win the game. We knew it was going to be a tight match going into it.

"Maidenhead haven't conceded many goals and we've had a number of clean sheets too. Therefore, we knew defences would be strong and that was the case.

"The pleasing point for us was, although we were frustrated that we didn't score, we didn't concede and got a point out of the game." 

Given the cancellation of so many fixtures, Cuss' side will face Maidenhead again this Sunday, with the side travelling to Potterne Park for a 2pm kick-off. 

The manager admitted that he's looking forward to the challenge and hopes his team will have the support of several Cherries fans on the sidelines in Verwood.  

"It's a really interesting challenge and it doesn't happen too often," he continued.

"The way that the cancellations have happened means that we have ended up playing the same team back-to-back, so it's a different challenge for the players and one that we can take the learnings from Sunday into.

"We'll tweak a few things, hopefully improve on a few areas going into this week, but it's certainly an interesting situation. For sure, it's going to be a challenge for us and one we have to try to look to overcome.

"We're getting towards the end of the season, it's going to be very tight between a number of teams and the extra support that we get at home is vital and really appreciated by all the players.

"It's the last time that we play at Verwood this season as well, so hopefully a few people will come along and offer that extra support."
