It just seemed like a totally lack lustre afternoon. After Aldershot in mid week this was a total let down.
Unlike the start against Aldershot we gently started this game, but with a nice move Duffers put us one up. The game continued in the same pace with the high ball starting to dominate. We just didn't seem to get on top of this game and kill it off.
Afternoon got worse when the linesman bottled a decision and the referee stuck by his decision to award a penalty against Chenners for handball - even though the hand that made contact wore a Red shirt. Total farse.
Lee seemed to be struggling to control the high balls that were being launched forward to him. Why do we get drawn into "who can hoof" the ball furthest against teams who play the long ball?
Towards the end you felt we weren't really going to get anything out of this game and these are games you can't afford to lose.
Keeling livened the game up when he inevitably came on for Clarke. Why does it take 60 minutes to realsie that our forwards weren't getting the quality of service they deserve. Surely Keeling will start in the game against Albion.
Overall no one really impressed - including Minton who was voted as man of the match. I would have gone for Theobald until caught out in the last minute, Keeling for his efforts or even McKinney who ended up having to make a few key saves.
Mints and Sedgemore were struggling to create anything real from midfield.
Can anyone explain why Sedgemore (Midfield) was subbed by Sterling (Defence) when we needed to up the anti? Perhaps Mario should have been on the bench.
G&N as a team were under pressure and we should have increased that instead we throw away 3 points and now have to try and grab them back against Albion next Saturday. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
