  • The Citizens make a great start as Dean Rittenberg opens the scoring after 7 minutes for his seventh goal from the last 6 JD WPL starts;
  • First goal is a terrific move starting from defence with Tom Kennedy, Laurence Wilson and Danny Gosset providing the supply line;
  • Druids apply pressure in the second half but The Citizens rearguard restricts the home side from creating any clear cut chances;
  • Luke Wall doubles the advantage in the 83rd minute to cap off a superb move from The Citizens;
  • Sgorio Man of the Match Danny Gosset breaks at pace before feeding Brayden Shaw who lays off to Gary Taylor-Fletcher for the killer pass;
