Both sides seemed to nulify each other with no real end product. Our wide players never really whipped the ball into the danger area today and the closest we came was from a cracking long range effort. Felt Corbell was particularly quiet today and Ian Luck was generally being drawn outside the danger area. Hope Nicky Rugg wasn't subbed today because of injury?
IMHO Harlow were better at passing the ball around, were more accurate than us this afternoon and had that hunger to win the second ball. We hardly troubled their keeper all afternoon. However, they didn't exactly set the world alight either and I always felt that our back four easily dealt with everything thrown at them. Felt Johnny Stuart did have a very good battling game this afternoon and wouldn't necessarily disagree with his MOTM award.
I was a touch diappointed in the crowd today - nice afternoon, top match, nothing else really happening and thought we may have realistically got near the 450 mark.
I don't normally moan about the officials and certainly don't like to blame them for a "result" - but felt they were particualrly crap this afternoon especially the 3 foot tall linesman who gave some very dubious decisions. Harlow appeared to be more physical than us - especially the digs in the back but hardly anything was picked up - although he seemed to give away a few yellow cards for less serious offences .
A lot of results seemed to go our way today with AFC Sudbury being an exception to the rule and they also have a few games in hand. The whole top half of the table is becoming very tight and the game at Ilford is becoming a very critical "must win".
