Well done Hurst and well done John-Lewis there must have been an awful ot of pressure on him taking that penalty in front of a large hostile Welsh crowd


I think he's used now to the pressure of facing hostile home crowds

Excellent result, the puzzlement of this teams abilities goes on. Only the commentary to go on but recent under-performers Nsiala and Mackreth in particular sounded very involved. Hostile crowd, larger than usual, and we rise to the occasion.

Just need a calm and measured interview from Hurst, we're still a way off where we should be but it's a tremendous win.

great three points.

re: playing against teams with 10 men, i sometimes wonder whether psychologically which teams gets a better surge of spirit... when playing with 10 men there's a real "we've got to work harder and do the work of 11" spirit that pops up and could be why it doesn't always result in the 11 dominating


That's down to the individuals though. The 11 must have played enough football to realise that they can't get complacent and potentially have to up their games. That's where the captain really has to step up and get the message across to his players to keep possession, spread the play where possible, make them chase and look to exploit the overlap.

Good result. Maybe LJL should be brought on as a sub when we get penalties.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Agreed, but Mackreth generally had the beating of his man, saw quite a bit of the ball - but little end-product?

Based only on the radio commentary, though, so I'll be interested in what those 'just back' have to say.


If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Maybe we should play all our games away. We have great results at Halifax, Kiddy and Wrexham, but disasters at home to the dross.???? Why?

Yeah, the just-backs will add detail but fromwhat I heard he seemed not only to get forward but to hold on intelligently in the way we needed for a tough away game, he also seemed to get back a lot and get tackles in. Just sounded a whole lot better than his bit parts he's put in of late. Hopefully a good long chat this week has brought them into reality and they'll start showing just what they can do.

Because we get more room away from home. The best results at home are against teams that try to make a game of it.
We do not know how to get around the back of packed defences.
