Im absolutely freezing and still pretty wet!
Good result, decent perfomance.

First half we started brightly before Accrington came into the game. Jones's goal came against the run of the play.  We then got sucker punched with some poor defending.

Second half we were the better side and Wolford's goal was very well taken.

Overall Matt was my MOTM, an absolute nightmare for defenders, won plenty of headers, used his physical presence really well and looks the part. Worked his backside off too. I think he is the best striker we have

Jones and Dembele both did really well and Wolford looks like he's got a lot of technical ability and he caused their full back loads of problems.

On the negative side - All our defenders were over 30 and it showed, Clarke and Collins didn't convince me.
I think we've got enough quality to not be in the relegation scrap but nowhere near enough for a top 7 finish.

Pretty much agree with Horsforth. Jones looked on his game especially second half and can be a beast of a player, Dembele did a couple of beautiful little runs, and the midfield as a whole battled hard if not always efficiently. 'A' for effort tonight.

Beat me to it HM.

On the way back, I was thinking - what were the main reasons Town won that game:  

Matt - because he was a mobile, physically able striker who, despite the attentions of the Acc. centre back and little change out of the ref: managed to drive Accrington back, which enabled Town to move and play some football in Accrington's half, which then gave Town's defenders some time to regain composure.

Woolford - was then able to show his capabilities in terms of moving the ball around with trickery and 1-2s - I enjoyed his performance and lovely delicate finish for the winner.

Dembele -  was sensational first half with some of his midfield bursts

Sam Jones - also played well as a target and also showed exceptional pace bursting forward plus nice touches as well.

All of this helped Town defenders and I thought second half they were resolute and concentrated really well, when Accrington put some crosses in - Collins in particular dealt with the aerial stuff - although Accrington forwards were not the tallest.

Most important - a win - nice to go home with a glow inside - despite the persistent rain most of the match.

Well done Town.

Agree with all, a much better battling performance.

Matt made all the difference up front and should really have scored, so much more effort than Hooper has shown in all his games.

Impressed by most players but towards the end Woolford, Matt and Dembele were all pooped out. Summerfield came on and did well, helped shore up the midfield as Rose didn't look that good again.

Two very well taken goals, but as already mentioned some dopey defending again at times but in the last 10 minutes or so all the defenders were throwing their bodies in the way.

Another similar effort on Saturday will do please.

Sounded like a promising second half and hopefully we can kick on and put a run together.

Enjoyable evening in a wet damp dark place. Matt ran their defense all over the place, Jones was playing off him and getting plenty of the ball to keep pressing. Clarke and Collins gave Jackson 1 chance and he took it otherwise I felt they contained him quite well. I can see why he is scoring well for them with the service he was getting from their 2 nippy wingers. Cracking save from Macca at the start of the 2nd half which allowed us to press and score straight after it. MOM was Matt for me as he had a good battle with their No 3. Ref played well at Wembley a couple of seasons ago but we never won a lot off him tonight.

Slightly different opinion to the op as I thought the defence, especially 2nd half was very strong. Davies and Clarke in particular despite coming under pressure from a string of free kicks given by a ref who seemed to give them everything for the slightest of nudges yet virtually nothing for far worse the other way.

McKeown made a couple of excellent saves especially the one with his legs within seconds of the second half. Dembele had two or three excellent runs in the first half but twice his touch let him down when in on goal. He became more frustrated and was again booked for kicking out. Still a youngster must must try and learn and bounce back from the rough treatment by scoring and creating goals.

Summerfield was excellent when he came on tackling, covering the ground and getting us on the front foot.

Matt was excellent. Gave as good as he got with a real physical presence against a couple of strong centre backs whilst Jones was outstanding, strong and aware of the position of opponents and team mates alike. Great skill for the goal and created the winner too.

Stanley are a decent side, very strong at centre back, flying wingers in numbers seven and eleven and Jackson and Kee up top. The sub in the second half was good too, evidently on loan from Leeds and the player who was reported to have lost his brother in some gangland killing a year or so ago.

Overall a team performance, better going forward but considerably better at the back against the team who were the leading scorers in the FL before kick off which shows how well they did

Matt was my MOM. Worked his nuts off (although tired towards the end) and is a big awkward handful who will bully defenders.

Also thought Mckeown did very well. Not convinced by him some days but did everything right last night,

The Wham Stadium made me yearn for the stadiums of non league.

I hope we stick with Matt and Jones for a run of games now give them a real chance of developing a partnership.

From a glance at the Sky highlights, a good run and excellent finish by Jones for the first and a very clever finish by Woolford for his goal.

It didn't look to me as though Collins was as disastrously out of position for their goal as the comments indicated, but Jackson should certainly have been picked up by somebody.

A bit harsh to say the goals came from long balls because there's a difference between an aimless whack upfield and a ball aimed at a player or into a dangerous space.

Pleased to hear that Jones played well as he's likely to be a key player this season and he hasn't started well before now and it sounds as though Matt may be the target man we've been looking for for ages now.

Jackson received the ball just inside the box where Collins should have been. It was a poor decision for him when running back, to go pressure the winger. Dixon was already engaging him so Collins should have ran back between Dixon and Clarke. I'm not going to be too critical of DC though as generally his positioning is excellent.

Have another look. When Jackson finishes, Collins is closer to the touchline than Dixon!!

According to their manager our game is based solely on the long ball.

Well if their game is based on Barcelona type passing football it didn't work did it? Away from home in difficult conditions, in league 2, you need to do what you have to do to win. We did!

Stanley played a mixture of getting the ball out wide but also tried the long ball over the top.

TBH exactly as we did

Sour grapes by their manager.  I believe I also heard him say our second goal was a mishit shot, which it most certainly wasn't, it was placed perfectly past their keeper by Woolford.

Agree, I was right behind him when he scored, a sublime touch.

Yep, 100% intended. Class finish. The defender and the keeper thought he was going to bring it back on to his other foot I think. Love those slo mo goals where you watch it roll in.

Cool finish for the first goal too. May have been scrappy and bundled in but watch the little dink over the goalie to leave the goal gaping.

After watching the highlights it could have easily ended 4 - 1 to us. Dembele was 1 on 1 after a great through ball by Jones, should have hit first time, his first touch denied him the opportunity (more confidence and pragmatic experience, he'll be fantastic). Matt had a great chance after tussling two defenders second half in a similar position as Jackson's goal, he probably should have passed it to Woolford though who had a open net to deal with.

Confidence and more pragmatic decision making, and I think all the doom and gloom will be far behind us!

Largely favourable comments on the Stanley message board although slightly galling that Accrington Stanley see us as lower level fodder!


Credit to Grimsby, they were very good in the first half and solid enough in defence in the second.


Grimsby played pretty well but we did not, though we coulda and shoulda got a draw


I felt Grimsby just battled that little bit harder than us

And this one too...

a word of praise for their fans behind the goal who never stopped singing throught the game getting wet through and probebly turned up more in hope than expectations.
