Would have happily settled for a point before kick off, but after losing LDV early and playing the second half with McChrystal in goal, i think that was a superb away draw, well done DC and the players, unbeaten run continues.
I would have taken a draw before the game, with McChrystal in goal for an hour delighted with the draw!
"the secret is very simple: you have to recognise who really owns the club, It's not the guy who has just come in, it's the supporters who've been there for 100 years and will be there for 100 more" Milan Mandaric - 16/03/2015
We did a ok, Macca and the four in front were superb. Difficult game to play even with a man advantage. Wall nearly won it with a Lambert like strike but a draw was fair. Half the motorway is closed going home though Urgh.
It looked to me at the time as though Mildy came out to the onrushing forward, but took one of those awkward steps that results in a pulled groin or a twisted knee or ankle. I didn't think it was the result of an impact. As play continued though, he was definitely struggling with his right knee.
Likewise, the LDV injury was more of a twist and turn. He had a player near him, but there was no foul, as I remember it.
The video will probably prove me wrong on both counts!
I hope both players' woes turn out to be minor, but I fear DC is going to have his work cut out to find replacements for a few matches. I really hope I'm wrong.
By the way, the travelling Rovers fans were not (as on previous visits) in the stand behind the goal. Now Wrexham have shut the terracing, behind one goal, they've commandeered the stand behind the other. Gasheads were in the adjacent end section of the (old) stand.
There were more than 193, more like 393 who for most of the game in good voice and giving a good riposte to the Wrexham fans. I think most of us would have taken a point before the game started it being one of our bogey teams and it was a point well earned after the indifferent start we made to the first half and despite a few scary moments with Macca in goal the 2nd half was much improved.....if only Alex Wall's rocket of a free kick had been 3 or 4 inches lower we would have come away with our first win there since 1979 !
