Mic lads going bananas at the ref (crowd not too amused either) as a "dead cert pen" is refused. Sammi and...a free kick us now and...four mins again.....and...Madine and...Pinto clears, Beevers clears from Watkins. And as the clock ticks (do digital clocks tick?) And now...Little, them, another sally at us and.......Ben steps up and takes.....And.....and....is that it...? And...Vela makes a last sally at their keeper...and...Sammi goes and...they try a last sally and....Murphy scores.....2-1. us. Would you believe it? :cry: Not clean sheet as Wheats lashes one towrds Mercuray and....that's it. We get the win and the points.....I thank you... :oyea: :oyea: :oyea:

It worked today.

P.S. Vela and Ameobi both played 90+4 minutes.

We are a 90 minute team. I dread extra time. Maybe an 80 minute team....

Great result - well deserved apart from the 1st 20 mins, should have had a penalty near the end when Ameobi was brought down IMO, but compared to how we started the season the team now looks competitive, we even look like a team and the players are certainly giving there all.

At least we now have a decent chance of surviving, so credit where its due.

Perhaps a few more wins will bring the crowds back, as the ground was half empty today

Great result against a side who's away form was better than their home. We could see why their star forward Jerome hadn't scored in fifteen game.
Thought Alnwick played his part in that victory and the rest of the team couldn't be faulted. We've hit a decent run of form but, cannot defend for the entire game which resulted in the obligatory goal for the opposition, this needs to be addressed.
Keep the faith.

Well done boys. Good result to go into the break. Good luck Boro tomorrow v Mackems. Irksome that Burton won at Millwall, and that Birmingham’s latest away loss was to Barnsley, but at least we can now watch other results with genuine rather than academic interest.

Goo win and we deserved that, we worked hard and apart from the first 20 minutes, we pressed them back instead of sitting back....good 3 points :)

Once again Madine worked himself into the ground for the cause. Can't see many doing that. Vela did the same.

Ameobi on a different level.

We tired towards the end and frankly we were slightly lucky they didn't take that chance with about ten minutes left. If they had I'd not have fancied us hanging on really.

Also thought Robinson had a great game, but has a lot to learn still about the art of defending. Made one superb clearing header to prevent a goal.

Well done lads. Did not have much possession but we were always a threat with Ameobi who is playing at a different level to everyone else. If we can keep him fit we will comfortably survive.

Thought Alnwick had an outstanding game and was my man of the match for some crucial saves and command of his box. Special mentions to Little and Madine. We also seem to have a real good player in Will Buckley. He caused problems when he came on and I look forward to seeing more of him. He is a more natural player in that position than Armstrong who I am happy for, scoring that lovely goal.

View from the West Stand Upper:

The first 25 minutes was terrible. Norwich completely dominated possession, looked like they were going to exploit Robinson at left back at will, and created two clear chances that thankfully Cameron Jerome spurned, albeit forcing Alnwick into a good save with one of them. Then Ameobi skinned their left back and put in a really intelligent chip with his weaker right foot to the back post where Armstrong headed a good chance over. That seemed to get us going and a few minutes later Madine scored after Pratley did well to break into the box and cross low into the six yard box. Then Little crossed from the right hand side, Madine half controlled it on the edge of the box, and Armstrong pounced to fire home from 20 yards in off the post.

The second half was pretty even for the most part with few chances until inexplicably a straight pass from defence somehow set their striker clear through and goal and he somehow managed to fire straight at Alnwick who saved and the rebound hit the striker and dribbled just wide. This chance was reminiscent of Sunderland's first goal on Tuesday, and it is something we need to sort out because it was too easy. They then scored with about 30 seconds left, but there was no time for any nail biting as the ref blew and we won. Cue Sweet Caroline and Amarillo. Weeeee.

No spectacular long range strike for Ameobi this time but for me he put in his best performance I have seen from him in a Bolton shirt and was a clear motm. He looked the best player on the pitch by a distance and still looked strong at the end of the game. Alnwick had a sound game and made a couple of crucial saves at important times, and Madine played well and got his goal. I still see problems with Beevers and Wheater at this level, and I wonder if Burke or Derik would provide more pace and better quality on the ball, which at this level are maybe more important than simply being 6ft 4in+. Parky won't change it for a while but I suspect it is an area we will be forced to discuss again soon.

Anyway, onwards and more importantly upwards. We can beat Preston. COYW.

Thought Buckley was ineffective myself and looked very far from the pace of the game. An odd choice to bring him on at that stage too I thought, given his lack of game time.
