Maidenhead 1 and Synthes UK 1 kicked off Round 4 with two of the early pace-setters coming head to head. Both teams were unbeaten so far with Maidenhead 1 taking 7 points from a possible 9 and were yet to concede a goal. Synthes UK 1 had a game in hand but had 4 points from a possible 6. A win for Maidenhead 1 would put them well on their way to Cup qualification. A win for Synthes UK 1 would make it really tight at the top.

With the game underway it was Synthes UK 1 who grabbed the first goal of the game. Matt Talbot was the man with the goal as he opened his personal account for the day. How could Maidenhead 1 respond? If they were to grab the next goal it would be Maidenhead 1 1 v Synthes UK 1 1 just to make this report awkward reading. It was not to be though as Adam Lowe scored the next for Synthes UK to make it Maidenhead 1 0 v Synthes UK 1 2.

Maidenhead 1 had lost their proud defensive record of 3 clean sheets and it was a case of the floodgates opening. Having shut-out their opposition in the previous 3 encounters they conceded 3 here and saw their positive goal difference wiped out. Adam Lowe made it 3-0 to Synthes UK 1 who completed a superb victory.

 
 
 

Next up was another crucial game at the top of the table in Group B as we had the teams currently occupying 2nd and 3rd position coming face to face. A win for either would see them top the table at the end of Round 4. A draw or defeat would see them stay in the Cup qualification places but still with some work to do going into the final stages of the group.

JNJ Middle East were enjoying their best start to a JNJ Euro Soccer Tournament with 2 wins from 2 games and, like Maidenhead 1, came into Round 4 without conceding a goal. Maidenhead 1 lost their record above, could JNJ Middle East retain theirs?

It was so far so good at half-time as Amein Abbas remained unbeaten on the day in the JNJ Middle East goal. It was even better for his team as a Matt Tominey goal gave them a first-half lead. Win #3 was on the cards.

JNJ Pinewood were unbeaten up to this point but that record was under threat against a JNJ Middle East that were looking very good and building up some momentum. Since an opening game brace the team had struggled a little in front of goal with 1 successful strike in the last 2 games they needed at least 1 here to avoid slipping to a first defeat. The next goal of the game went to Michael Le Bihan though as JNJ Middle East extended their lead to 2-0.

Their proved to be no way back for JNJ Pinewood as their first defeat would see them slip to 5th position a harsh reflection on their exploits so far as they arguably deserved more. JNJ Middle East were flying.

 
 
 

With the top 4 teams already in action in Round 4 there was a chance for the chasing pack to gain some ground. The two teams with the chance of doing that were Janssen Portugal and Slavoj Consumer.

The teams were currently in 5th and 6th position. Slavoj Consumer currently held 5th and they could move up to 4th with victory. They had gone loss-win-loss so far and needed that pattern to continue with another win against the Portuguese side.

Janssen Portugal had narrowly missed out (3-2) against a strong Synthes UK 1 team in their first game, before a narrow (1-0) loss to Maidenhead 1. They had certainly been competitive but could they now gain some points that their performances had merited?

If you're a Portugal fan turn away now as the result was happier reading for the Czech team. A captain's goal from Lukas Suchy and a further strike from Michal Dudon ensured that Slavoj Consumer would return to winning aways and move on to 6 points just a point off 2nd position.
