Not sure we need chaos now!

Isgrove wasn’t what I had in mind, when I suggested Maddison be rested

He’s built like a child, can’t run, has a touch like Godzilla and couldn’t pass a fexkin parcel.
Might be a bit harsh but I'm somewhere on the wide spectrum between you and Evatt, who has given Isgrove "minutes" in 19 of the last 20 games (starting the match before the Salford game that spurred the first good spell) and 10 starts in the last 13
Well I must say he’s played well tonight. As have a few of them
No no no you're doing this internet thing all wrong. You're supposed to stick to your guns at all costs, find minor things to snipe about, or if all else fails just go to ground... :D

(for the record I'm no big fan of Izzy. I was just saying Evatt is)

In a classic scenario, we break now and score.

Isgroves certainly more positionally disciplined than some of our other wingers!

Five extra minutes. Time for a third from Maddison.

Aye - wonder if he'll get 60 rather than 30 minutes on Saturday

I will concede that Williams has had a good game tonight, although not sure I can agree with BWFCi’s description of ‘classy’ 😂

Santos, Baptiste and Thomason have all been excellent too

MJ and the centre halves excellent. full backs both good though disappointed with John’s second half, he certainly got pegged back. Isgrove played well also, and Doyle.

Great result, especially considering the form that Scunthorpe was in.

Really? Strokes it around really well. Breaks up play. Classic defensive midfield player. Few amazing 50 yard balls too. For me he’s probably the classiest player we’ve got in that he’s very comfortable in his role and is consistent across the 90 minutes rather than in and out of games.

At the start of February we were 19th in the table on 31 points whilst Carlisle was 2nd with 42 points.

Now we're in 9th on 44 with Carlisle 10th on 43. What a turn around for both teams.
