Saturday's Verdict v The Cod Army

could do batter............!

It sounds as though we didn’t play too well on Saturday ( perhaps we were coasting ! ) but not bad enough to lose. We got undone by two strikes from distance as players were allowed too much time and space.

Aside from the obvious deficiencies in midfield we really ought to be doing better. I’m really not sure what the thinking was that saw big Josh start out wide. Mr Slade had two weeks to come up with something better than that.

Whilst praising the subs that came on to help secure the draw perhaps we ought to be thinking that we really oughtn’t to have been in losing position to begin with !

I’m not trying to be overly critical but surely we need a degree of flexibility that sees us try different formations. I’d be up for Mr Slade giving Lookman a free role behind a single striker or maybe Ajose not being one of the front two.

Why we can’t seem to play to his strengths is a concern or is the player struggling to settle ? Whatever, we need to sort it fast.

A point away is fine if it is backed up with wins at home although we really should be more ambitious than that. Certainly our game in hand albeit away to high-flying Scunthorpe is one that we really need to win if we’re not to lose touch at the top.

That needs to start on Saturday against a Wimbledon side that has yet to win on the road but did manage a draw away to a Northampton side that is very good at home.
