We lack quality as a club both on and off the pitch.Lucky point and we were mediocre in the extreme.Nice to visit a proper stadium though and reckon James Clarke should be made captain.Great to-day.Never lets us down.
Last time there,Burn came on as an early sub -not one of DC's better signings.-,Luke James kept falling over and some 60 year old Gasheads had to be sorted by an elderly lady steward. as they insisted on sitting in other than their ticketed seats and were somewhat inebriated.Think we lost 1-0.Today will be a great day to make up for that I hope.Not a massive journey for us here or you down there.Wonder what the future holds for the Ricoh??
Just appoint of correction it was our only time there 25 MARCH 2017 Burn actually started the match and was subbed by whispering Bob Harris. Over 4000 gasheads totally let down by an inept performance. Coventry went down a week later as our play off hopes were shattered that day by a George Thomas goal.
Brilliant defensive performance. Bonham kept us in it with a m o m performance that we've seen goalies come to the Mem and do.
Great to hear and see so many Gas in full voice.
After last week's shenanigans after match, there was a suffix to just outside car park afters..... at least one nicked.....this time though it was the kids playing haymakers.
On the pitch.... We take 4 points from a decent Cov side this season. That's a very decent return.
Lockyer one sublime tackle at the end when matey was away, a proper last ditch perfect timed challenge. Ably backed up by Craig, who covered alot for the weaker Kelly, and I thought James Clarke was immense. He let's you think the winger has got best of him but always done enough to block cross or force Cov back. We were poor on flanks but Sincs got back to cover on left, JC and Locks would overlap at back..... formation wise, we seemed to surrender the extreme width, but set an umbrella of defence quite deep which mopped most up that entered box. Very effective. Especially when it was breached, a strong and reactive Bonham was on form to save a few times.
We relied on counters, and I thought JCH again done a great job holding ball up etc ... Worked hard today just not the final touch he needed.
Sorry.... Ogogogogo and Upson, don't see the point. Upson wasted a few decent set pieces. Sercs, apart from one regulation shot straight at keeps was again poor by his standard.
Ref I thought was fair....Locks played the injury and ref by staying down under 33.3/33.3/33.3% challenge with Bonham and Bakyoko, but the wiley fox knew they were getting on top and stalled for time breaking they're concentration and rythym..... even though our lot were baiting for cards, yellow was fair at the most..
A great away day. Well done defence, that's a match we would've lost at start of season, now it's next 3 in bottom 4..... avoid defeat in all those and I think we'll be safe.
