It's like playing a joker every week except it's called a defensive error. up it pops, 1-0

That first 30 minutes, Politic's run aside, was as bad as anything I've witnessed. They've got lads running off the ball, we're all at sea. Midfield aren't supporting the attack or protecting the defence.

Difference is Murphy and Lowe are playing side by side, last week Murphy was ahead and Lowe was sweeping.

Overall extremely poor.

2 up top with the long ball isn't working today. I do expect a change at half time. O'Grady will be replaced for Dodoo and we'll go 4-5-1.

...and there's the problem with the flat 4-4-2, as opposed to the 4-5-1/4-3-3: lack of "depth". One pass (or burst) and you're through.

feck all width on the right, all down the left. As a result, ref played advantage with us attacking, ends up back with Remi Matthews.

Nsiala sparked out on the floor, went in to head a ball and clean nutted the Coventry midfielder.

Out cold.

Scratch that Lowe has been over and knocked him out again.

Delaney on.

Absolutely awesome play by O'Grady on the left, crosses in and Murphy's header is saved well for a corner.

Delaney not covering himself in glory.

Can see he's off the pace.

Matthews has kept this score respectable.

Another good save.

Four of the five teams above us are losing, the exception being AFC Wombles who are drawing at home with Fleetwood having scored with their only shot.

Some really shit teams are staying up this year.

Can we get a defensive coach or is that not allowed these days?

Some of the play at the back is dreadful.
