Saturday’s Premiership game was a lesson in finishing as the well performed Bulk Lines Otorohanga scored early and late to run out 6-2 winners on a Domain that makes Chris Bedford’s paddocks look like Wembley.
While the recurring injury problems aren’t helping, the Swifts’ propensity to over play on a surface even Pep Guardiola’s rampant Barcelona side of a decade ago would struggle with, is equally of concern.
Matamata briefly threatened a revival after goals from Chris Walker and Pete Shannon midway through the second half, but the visitors were too sharp and too clinical at the pointy end of the field.
