Getting back to the game - cant agree with the posts regarding giving Crusaders credit on the pitch
At times the game was played at Championship 1 pace with the constant slowing down for which they were rightfully punished for the constant rippings out of the ball and the second efforts, in the last 10 mins when it was all over a few sneaky cheap shots creeped in as well
Average in attack with their one opportunity leading to their one and only score which was a gift from us - Unbeaten in 18 months at home prior to yesterday so i am told, maybe i expected more from the Championship 1 champs - a massive wake up call for them for me
Off the pitch it was a great day allround and a great away turnout
Regarding us - The first half performance left a lot to be desired as creatively we were abysmal but JB clearly earned his crust at HT as we were a different team in the second half
Moore and Briggs looks like it could be a decent partnership based on yesterday, early signs are very encouraging, excellent that Briggs got a full 80 in with no reaction with his knee
Thought Bussey was going well at 9 till got injured but that might open the door for Kain now as well as Ellis coming back into the reckoning
The forwards ran it in well all game, thought Roche looked decent during his little spell
Etu tried hard yesterday and early signs are good, maybe the team tried too hard to get him over the line but he is a clear crowd favourite, in the second half he tended to drift inside most of the time and played the role of a battering ram a bit like Menzie Yere plays at Sheff, perhaps suited better in the centre?
As for Will Sharp he has got to be the bargain signing for us in the last few years, how he isnt at a SL club ill never know - the man is absolute class week in week out
Onwards to the Rochdale game now - i expect squad changes
