Oh well. Disappointing, but played well and were the better side. Can't win 'em all.

Said before the start I'd settle for a point. Don't quite feel that way now though.

Well, that’s punishment for not capitalizing on being on top. Never mind - played well and still unbeaten COYWM.

We played well and deserved the three points. You can’t be too critical after that. Only thing you can say is we had enough play to have scored more and I guess scoring goals is our weak spot. Not so much missing chances, but just final ball we easily could have scored 3 or 4 today.

But a point is no disaster and we can count ourselves unlucky but just keep going.

Poor that. Can’t leave the back post so empty. Jones asleep.
Behave. It's a hoik in the air from a freekick, a flick on then another touch. Could drop anywhere. No time to get set. Not every goal is a mistake.

Only scoring one when we were on top is why we didn't win.

Cambridge massive. Still think we can win this.

I'm not criticising anything about that. We looked like the home team and it broke for them late in. Happens. We've had a few late ones of our own. And played worse and won.

Unbeaten run continues. Onto Cambridge.

Dominant performance today.

At the start, I wouldn't have been too gutted with a point...Dominated second half and paid for our inability to convert. Disappointing.

Haven’t been this disappointed at failing to win in quite some time. Gutted after that performance.

Piss poor finish. Points dropped.

Bradford got exactly what they wanted from the game. 2 game in hand and only 4 points behind us.

The air of inevitability was back.

If that’s the best this league has to throw at us between now and may we’ve a great chance of going up.

I was probably a bit harsh but still don’t think you should concede with the back post area so vacant.

Agree our defence have been good it’s just we need to turn dominance into goals more readily.

Onwards and upwards. I don’t think we will get top 3 but top 6 hopefully. And in that pursuit a point today is good.

If we're being critical then MJ and Fonz need to learn how to jump and head a ball. The two of them could have given more of a challenge for the ball.

This.
Themselves the beneficiaries of a last minute goal today against a lowly Walsall side. But grabbing all three points and not just one.

Spot on.

We looked a division above them today. Sort that final ball out and we'll hammer one or two but even playing on fine margins as we have been, if that was our toughest test we'll be reet

Aye. It's tight as a duck's arse and I imagine you'd get eye-wateringly high odds on these teams staying in this order until May.

I make that Fonz's first goal since the game before we shipped six to Port Vale, which now feels like about five years ago.
