I really hate commenting on officials but where have they dug this lot out from? There’s good competition but they might be the worst yet.

Just no real rhythm to the game at all and that clearly suits them better. I might be looking at Cooper second half.

Gone exactly as I expected it to go. Close game between two sides with not much between them. I do wish we would start games quicker at home though. Earlier on in the season we were blitzing teams and now we look like we're being sent out not to lose first and foremost.

Proctor on for Edmondson will help a lot in the second half.

Poor half that, just drifted by. Not helped by a ref that in another life would make an excellent traffic warden. Feels like the instructions have been to keep it tight, we’ve stood off too much. These are well organised and the No 6 is directing things, plus the little black lad up front look lively, but they do look like we can get at them at the back. Interesting to see what, in any changes DC makes at HT as we need to step it up against the wind.

Not a good game of football but impossible to do anything with this referee. Rubbish for both sides. They look a good team, definitely had the best chance of the half, really good save from Holy. Not sure on this long ball stuff though, edmondson can’t see to win a header or hold it up so it’s just coming straight back. Need more from Pett and Garrity, Garrity has been really poor so far. 0-0 probably fair but looking at other results we need to win this.

Not sure what Edmondson really offers outside of being a trier. He's not strong, not good in the air and not particularly quick. Looks very much like the sort of forward his record would suggest he is. Out of the two I think Harratt has much more about him.

Dull  last 20 minutes and lack of quality from us. Battling but no guile from us.

Would like to see us get at them down the flanks more. Worall been in some good positions but we lack fluidity.

60 minute substitutions might be needed if we want to achieve 3 points.

We look off the pace a little and struggled to compose ourselves  to pass the ball. Few occasions we have passed the ball we have got at them very easy. 
 

A bit more energy needed from the midfield to pick up the 2nd ball and keep the pressure on.

I feel these are there for the taking if we can be more positive in our play.

I’d be tempted to get Charsley and Proctor on for Garrity. I know it’s early for proctor but if he’s on the bench he must be fit enough. I can see this ref giving a penalty for that rose diving at some point 

 

Not sure subbing two players for one would be allowed. Nice try though.
