Dowie to vist New Windmill shock

Brakes fans have received a double shock. Having lost 4-1 in the FA Vase quarter finals yesterday to a rampant Curzon Ashton, the news has been received that Iain Dowie will be bringing Coventry City to the New Windmill Ground for the Mayoral Cup in May. Last year the Sky Blues put out most of their Championship squad and won 5-0.

Brakes disappointed in their defeat yesterday, although Curzon Ashton did look very good and were fast on the break. An early own goal involving a fumble by goalkeeper Jason Pearcey really set the scene and after that Brakes were struggling to get back into the game, giving Curzon chances to counter attack.

The Tameside Stadium was impressed with two covered stands and terracing all round the ground. The need for crowd segregation and CCTV was emphasised when a mass brawl broke out in our stand in the second half as a consequence of which I missed the Brakes consolation goal scored by removal man Josh Blake and inspiring a chant of 'We're going to win 5-4'.

Paul May was 'indisposed' yesterday and was not able to go to Watford, but I am hoping to post a couple of analyses by fans later.
