It’s been a big week in the eyes of Gloucester City this week, in the wake of what could turn out to be a ‘six pointer’ come the end of April, writes club commentator, Ollie Williams.\r\n\r\nLast weekend was a real weight off of the clubs shoulders, winning bang on two months after our last win, away at Nuneaton.\r\n\r\nIn truth it wasn’t so much a solid win, but we had to grind out the win, in truth I was shocked to see the ball actually hit the back of the net.\r\n\r\nNeither side looked like scoring, as I didn’t see enough evidence from either side that they could cut it in the final third.\r\n\r\nThe best chance of them all fell to the visitors, when Corby captain Cleveland Taylor was given acres of space in the box, but his shot rattled the bar before Jas Singh scrambled to claim the ball, a real let off.\r\n\r\nJosh Cook came on in the second half, and in all honesty didn’t set the game alight, but managed to grab the all important winner, what proved to be the biggest goal of the season so far.\r\n\r\nTim Harris confessed to me after the game that he’d given the Swindon loanee “a rocket” during the week, and wants to see more from the Football League prospect, and in truth I don’t blame him.\r\n\r\nThe Tigers scoring more than once in a game has occurred just once, highlighting goals as being the key missing ingredient. But with great finishers in the side with Obi Anaruo, Jonte Smith and now Cook, we need to get the goals flowing.\r\n\r\nIt’s Harris’ job to figure out the problem, and in time it will come, whether it be the finishing or perhaps service.\r\n\r\nTomorrow we travel to Tamworth, where it will be my first time travelling away with City. Of all places, Tamworth is a great club for me, as my first match of commentary came at the Racecourse Ground, as Andy Morrell’s Wrexham hosted Tamworth in January 2014. Now Morrell is in charge of the Lamb Ground outfit, and a host of Wrexham players are in the side.\r\n\r\nThese include Steve Tomassen, Elliott Durrell and now Lee Fowler, who joined today, and will be available subject to international clearance.\r\n\r\nFowler is instantly the man to watch, as he can work wonders with the ball in midfield. When back in North Wales, my colleagues describe him as a ‘luxury player’.\r\n\r\nThey’ve also got Danny Racchi, who trailed with Wrexham over the summer and looks like a terrific technical player, who made four appearances in the National League with FC Halifax Town this season.\r\n\r\nLooking down the ranks, we see that the young tigers exited the FA Youth Cup, where they lost 4-1 to an excellent Bristol Rovers, who go on to face Portsmouth in the next round. It’s a shame for them and for me, as to see my boyhood club Pompey travel to Gloucestershire would have been terrific.\r\n\r\nWith another six pointer against Lowestoft Town in eight days at Whaddon Road, what a way to go in with confidence than with two wins on the trot and put some space between City and the bottom pack.\r\n\r\nMake sure to catch commentary on ‘Severn Sport’ tomorrow at the Lamb Ground, and we’ll make sure to bring you plenty of coverage if you aren’t making the trip.\r\n\r\nSafe travel to all, I’ll be on the supporters coach, and look forward to mixing with those who make the club.\r\n\r\n@OllieWills01
