My concern is Gordon is an athlete who can kick a football, and doesn’t have a football brain.

Mascoll's about to come on, which is interesting

For Lockett, which is odd

Think Mascoll's going left-wing, Darcy right-wing, Gnaouha up top?

Odd as the team looked to settle into the system, Mascoll almost presents goal number 3 for Shrewsbury by going down in installments.

Another good set-piece, again involving Greenidge (who got the assist), but Gnahoua heads wide - should at least ask a question there

Same 3-4-3, just switching the front prongs

Referee helping us out there.

Greenidge bumbling the Shrewsbury striker over in the 18 yard box. Gives a Bolton free kick. Cheers ref.

Sooner we get Miller back to fitness the better. Glad he wasn’t risked here to be honest.

I’m not one to rush into judgements on players after only a couple of games but Greenidge will not be playing professional football next season. I admire the approach Evatt and Phoenix are taking with data driven recruitment but there’s a reason the lad was playing in the Norwegian third tier - he’s not very good.

Just checked, dear god we gave him a 2 year deal

I thought Gnahoua has been playing well this half.

Been a tad worrying this half.

The highlight when he dispossessed our player and passed it to the Shrewsbury keeper.

ooh Hickman fires just over in the last seconds of the 90 after a decent bit down the right. 3 added minutes


Which I suppose made him Jak in the box, which would make their goalkeeper Burgoyne onomatopeic

Game was lost in the 1st half. Competed well in the 2nd but the lack of depth is quite worrying.

Glad Senior got his goal, We can now forget about another cup and get on with climbing the league.

From the sound of things, we haven't done too badly here. We've put out a "weakened" side, missing a number of the players you would expect to see starting on Saturday, against a team in the league above. We've shot ourselves in the foot to concede twice in the first half, but otherwise have matched Shrewsbury and really should be at least level. Fair comments?
