Beer Albion can’t quite produce the same result against St Martins

Beer Albion 2, St Martins 4 The Fishermen could not quite reach the heights they had found just seven days before when they held St Martins to a 2-2 draw in Exeter.
With manager Phil Crabb away watching Exeter Chiefs get thumped in the Heineken Cup at Cleremont, can probably consider themselves unlucky not to have again taken something from the meeting with one of the Fresha League top sides.
Trailing 2-1 at the break the Fishermen levelled early in the second half and it was only a classy finish and a late penalty that consigned Beer to defeat.
Adam Wakeley and Chris Long netted the Beer goals.
An eighth defeat in 16 Premier Division games leaves the Fishermen sitting precariously in the table, five points above the drop zone.
You may also want to watch:
Their coming fixtures offer every chance of the side climbing to mid-table safety, though they also present the very real threat that if they don’t bank a decent number of points they will be dragged into the thick of the relegation battle.
Next up they travel to Thorverton and four of their next seven matches are against sides currently sitting below them in the table.
