Great to see Leon play some minutes and even better to have him score!
Let's hope we can keep this run going for a while
Roll on tomorrow...another tough fixture against a team that will want to pick up some points from us...

Good luck to all the staff @sloughtownfc for the new season.Quietly confident that this is going to be something special.
RT @ForwardHamlet: BTFC cheerleaders idea binned after players see them and get the horn. You *literally* can't make this shit up.
It was a very entertaining match, but it's such a shame when we come out of a match having to talk about the referee. He was far too card happy throughout and lost control of the match at an early stage. I have to ask whether the first red card was denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity - maybe it was, I couldn't really see what else was going on in the box, I'm sure someone from behind the goal can clarify.
The second one for two yellows was fair enough, and the third one could have gone either way in my opinion. There was a defender back with him, but maybe not close enough to be classed as being the 'last man'.
More annoying than the red cards were the yellow cards for me. Dumas gets booked for a high foot when the striker dips his head down, Heale gets booked for a supposed elbow which the referee and lino can't have seen, otherwise they would have red carded him straight away. How can they give him a yellow card for alleged violent conduct, let alone for an incidient that they didn't see/didn't happen?!
As for their penalty, I've never seen everyone look so bewildered about a decision! And then Curran gets booked for 'diving' when he's fouled as clear as day!
It's strange that I can come out of a 4-1 win and still feel aggrieved about the refereeing performance, but in all honesty he was awful. Luckily, I do think he was equally awful for both sides.
Onto the positives, delighted with our 4th win on the bounce which has really put us in the mix again. I've never wished for a ball to hit the back of the net so much as with Leon's goal! He's had a terrible time of things with injuries this season, so for him to come on and do that was special. Danny & Jay both looked lively up front, and Rhodesy looked much better with Dumas back in the side - the connection between them is possibly our strongest asset going forward. It was a shame that Ellis' goal wasn't allowed to stand, he looked up for it when he came on.
As for the banter, it was vintage Yellow Army! The vocal support has been superb this season, and in each of the last four victories the noise coming out of the shed has been exceptional. Confidence breeds confidence, and with the positive vibes coming from the Yellow Army out onto the pitch, it would be naive to say the atmosphere isn't helping us in putting this run of results together.
All in all, an entertaining match, a great results, plenty of beers before and after, and I won the Bonus Ball - top day!
