from the Stokinel:
Covolan is well outside his area to meet the ball with a diving header but straight to Dacres-Cogley who should have done better than a lob that gave the keeper time to recover.
Life is never going to be boring with this guy in goal!
It's all he could do if he'd of stayed on his line like brown they would of been 1 on 1 with the keeper

May be my own fault having advised ppl to get there early after Tuesday nights nightmare. Got there at 14.30 to go int Railway Paddock. I soon realised that I probably wouldn’t get in until 15.20 at the earliest so came home.

I got there at 2.25 and got in at 2.50 so for me it was fine(nice to see a bigger crowd),i do think you would of got in on time But there was nobody directing things and that made it a bit shambolic as the line was snaking all over the place before splitting into two( must of been a pain those getting tickets and then having to join the back again). Also there were a fair few who passed me looked how long the line was and turned away

Brown would punt high and aimless. Covolan seemed to be under instruction to knock it into Rodney's channel, which he did a lot in the first 20-30. As I say, I'm not expecting him to thread balls through. Once or twice his passing got us in behind, which is what I would anticipate from a League 2 keeper.

I agree that was the instruction and understand your point. It’s just a bit frustrating because 9/10 times the ball went straight back to them and we just gave up possession.

First half to many long balls for me but i did think some of covolans kicks and throws were bang on although he did give us all one heart stopping moment second half that he was lucky didn't cost us.

Jones was cracking,he really looks a find and considering the abuse Garrity got from his other clubs fans he has done nothing wrong in the 2 games i have seen,i am happy with midfield when you think as well that we have Conlon to come back and the defence wont concede that many imo BUT we do lack a bit of something up top and that's my only concern,having said that maybe we just need to get that first goal to start us off

People will moan about the lack of goals so far but we could and should have had at least two today. Hit the woodwork twice and their keeper had a very good game. It happens. Put a couple past Carlisle on Tuesday and all will be well.

Keep creating the chances and goals will hopefully come,we have had something like 25 shots/chances in 2 games and scored one,it has to click at some point

Completely disagree. I think he has looked decent on Tuesday and again for 20 mins today. I think him and Wilson could form a really good partnership with Rodney playing outside on the LW.

That could be interesting play 4-4-2 with Rodders left,Wozzer right with Wilson and Proctor in the middle

Just back. Keeper solid when he stays at home. Dan Jones MOM. I will say it again don't see currently how we will score enough goals. Oh also think Legg should have started at Northampton not put a foot wrong.

 

Could easily have had a couple today at least, and on another day would. I don't think we're going to be a high scoring team, that's pretty clear. But if we keep on defending well and keeping clean sheets we'll win plenty of games.

Unlucky not win, hit the woodwork twice and should have had at least one pen, principally the second half shirt pull on Smith.
Benning didn’t have a great game. Jones quite narrow and consistently left his oppo in miles of space which was concerning at times. 
Covolon daft again with a stupid header, fortunately their forward was offside but otherwise steady. 
Legge immense in fairness to him. Rodney uncharacteristically not great. Definitely missed Conlon although Garrity looked miles better than the reviews Oldham fans were giving him. 
Could easily have notched a few today, it’ll come. Too much hoofball again though.

For what it's worth i think in the 2 games i have seen us play at home we have played very well and deserved more from them both,yes i have a couple of concerns but at some point it will all click so not worried at all,after all how did Bolton start last season,it takes a little time to Gel but we will get there soon enough

I thought we should have had in the very minute. From the corner Smith’s arm was blatantly held by Knight-Percival who pulled him down.
Wilson loads of effort but no quality balls to him, Rodney poor with only flashes of interest and effort. Proctor played well when he came on and looking how their back two struggled at times probably should have been on from the beginning.
Midfield up against two good players in Spearing and Foley and at times they controlled the game, but did not hurt us.
Their no. 2 was very pacy and missed a sitter first half and caused us problems all game.
Overall thought game could have gone either way so a draw about right.

Cov 6 Nothing really to do, what was that flying header? Don’t trust him yet, at all.

Benning 6 a few good crosses, looks unfit, probably why subbed

Smith 7 Solid, threat in the box, pulled down for at least one pen in my eyes

Legge 8 Easily dealt with their big lad

Jones 8 good footballer, hard tackler, good crosses, adaptable. Fantastic pick up

Walker 6 ‘the dirty work’ player, goes unseen I know I know. Anonymous.

Garrity 6 ok I guess, nothing to say

Pett 7 good on the ball, slow burner, will become a great asset over time in sure

Wilson 6 should have scored, could have got 2. 

Rodney 7 no service, hard worker, tackled back, played ok

Worrall 8 my MOTM, we have NOTHING going forward without him. He’s our best player. Stop shackling him, everyone can see it’s not right. Great chance of his own making. Quality crosses as has become the norm.

Cass 7 looked really decent and gave Worrall freedom. Him in a back 4 and Jones LB is the way to go based on that game.

Amoo 6 looks up for it, which is nice

 

It was there for the taking and Tranmere looked slow, no real threat, even when we have them acres to work with. If that’s a team to watch for promotion then I’m not too depressed with our opening offering.

Obviously missed Conlon and what a <ovf censored> player to miss for the first home league game! Would have been a different story I think with him in there as we were missing that little quality. Even game with Vale having the clearer chances.
