Really feels like the new players are beginning to settle after watching that performance.

You can tell Covalan has had a sit down, looked a lot more settled and less of a fright when the ball came back to him. His distribution still needs a lot of work, but positives are that he is really good at coming out and claiming the ball.

Martin came in and did the Legge roll well, didn't put a foot wrong. Feels like it had a calming affect on the rest of the back line, Smith's best game this season too.

Front two were quality, just need a goal for Wilson and it feels like they could really kick on as a partnership.

Special shout out to Garrity, he's had his critics for his quality, but there's no doubting his ability to harry and affect the performance of the FGR midfielders and defenders. We've got three L2 Rolls Royce midfielders in Walker, Pett and Conlon...maybe what they need is a jack russell like Garrity to complement them?

That seems like a very important win and performance. Going to a team that have started the season like a train and being the better team without ever looking in danger of conceding.

With Legge out I was fearing the worst but the defence continues to pick up clean sheets.

Are Wilson and Proctor a winning combination? With Rodney off the bench to run at tired defences I'm hopeful we'll get enough goals for a promotion tilt.

I think Martin is as good as Legge. If not, then not far off. There's also Cass who seems to be a really good young player and can do a job wherever you put him in the backline. 

We've shown we can win games without Conlon, who is our most important player arguably along with Worrall. I think we're covered in most positions now to be able to deal with injuries and suspensions without having a big drop off in quality. I do worry if one of our strikers got injured but Clarke knows as well as we do that we're still a bit short in that area.

We'll lose this game and if we don't get a win against Rochdale then the pressure will be on Clarke and 'the process'.

I must admit, I thought about this post at full time on Saturday and I'm glad it came back to bite you on the backside. The perfect example of an unnecessary knee-jerk reaction. 

You could see from the Tranmere and Carlisle game (and 2nd half of Stevenage) that a win was coming and we've looked progressively better without our star player and by the time he came on in the 74th minute the game was won.

A big result to kick on from and unbeaten in 4. Solid.
