The venue of comebacks was at it again as Bibs fought back from 2-0 down to stun Skins who looked after 50 minutes to be cruising.
The first talking point was an early Skins goal. 'Tricker it's a goal kick' 'Paul on the floor' these were one of many cries from players on both sides and the watching Eason on the sidelines. But no Tricker threw to Virgo who insisted he was passing the ball back to start the game again. Either way Curry nipped in and a disastrous start for Bibs. I should add the goal kick was as a result of a speculative Mitchell cross which hit the bar. The Ivorian defender is getting closer to his first BACA goal.
Bibs were playing at a tempo way too fast and they were losing possession on a regular basis. When they did string a few passes together they looked bar far the more dangerous team. It was an interesting clash of styles with the patient build up from Skins while you had the crash bang wallop approach of bibs.
A fine turn by Green past Baker saw him centre invitingly for the king of winter who much like Gazza in 96 was a millimetre away from scoring. Ridley too was having the occasional pot shot and Green became the first player to clear the BACA site with a right foot shot that was closer to the North Stand goal at the Amex then the 'theatre of comebacks'.
At the other end Hunt had a couple of headers but for all of the Skins possession on chances Bibs were well in the game.
1-0 at half time and the same pattern continued.
Brenchley smashed a post soon after the restart but then a lovely layoff by Bahrami, released Greenwood who fired past Ridley for 2-0. It looked a long road back for Bibs now.
They were given an immediate tonic when Brenchley turned and found the bottom corner.
The game was now stretched and Skins had several opportunities to use men over on the attack but often failed to find the killer ball and the move broke down.
The equaliser came from a corner and Brenchley lost Mitchell at the back post to head past Amir in goal.
The comeback was complete when Green found space 15 yards from goal and unleashed a pile driver in of the post for a goal fitting to win any match.
Skins had a late flurry with a long throw but bibs repelled any shot and the game was over.
Some desolate Skins players left the pitch and even today Mitchell was close to tears discussing last nights events.
Whilst not one for the purist it was another twist again in the mode of an Agatha Christie thriller.
MOTM - Matt Green - not just for the goal but a fine performance, winning tackles and rarely misplacing a pass. Rounded of by a winter goal of the season contender.
