According to wor heed coach 'Broken Nose Bruce' we didn't lose this game, az penalty shootouts are a lottery!--But NOT in wor case, az we have now lost FIVE in a row at SJP in the Leegue Cup since 1979! (A lottery meeenz yoo win some and lose some!)
30,000 were here to witness nee shots on target from 'us' in the forst half az we attacked The Gallowgate goal--and 3 on target in the 2nd period at the Leazes End!
We should have won, but failed to take wor chances and paid the price!
Bornley will gan doon in history az havin nee shots on goal at aall, but still progressed to the 3rd roond of the competition with a 4-3 penalty win at The Leazes End!
Saint Max missed wor forst one and Almiron missed wor 5th one! Joe Willock, Joelinton and Sean Longstaff scored wor pens, in between wor misses!
Attendance: 30,168 includin 350 Hillbillies in the upper tier of The Leazes End, aall on their lonesome, az the rest of the upper tiers remained empty!
