Disagree that Disley and Clay had poor games. Mackreth and Arnold were invisible and not getting back, that was why these two couldn't put their stamp on the game.  Thought that Sisley in particular played well and our best moves in the first half came through him.  Lenny did well holding the ball up but our side midfielders failed to give him options when he got the ball, had the one that hit the post actually have gone in then it would have made Oxford come at us instead of weighing us up before hitting us on the break with pace.

For me, the tactics/set up in the first half was wrong - we should have gone at them with an attacking formation.

At the end of the day we weren't ever gonna win the cup (hard to accept I know) so let's move on and get a win against Halifax on Tuesday, the cup will be forgotten about by then.

Disappointing though, truth is players that you would have thought pre match would match theirs and shine did not/could not,( and apart from Nielson when he came on) that was the problem, was it the way they was set up or was it the comics they had read that day, excuses,  excuses lets move on to Tuesday

Clay gave the ball away allowing them to break and score the second. Until then he was playing well but faded badly. Both he and Disley were guilty of poor control throughout the game and for me caused promising moves to break down as they both dallied on the ball with attacking players ahead of them in threatening positions. Disley barely received any applause at all when he went off because he was so ineffective. I do agree that they weren't helped by the formation though since it wasn't clear who our wingers were and subsequently none of the attacking players provided any defensive cover which left us very exposed.

Not a good performance but that is quite out of character. I think we were too adventurous with the team selection and that had completely unbalanced us, we missed someone sat in front of the back four allowing the rest to go press and play higher up the pitch. I'd like to see neilson and pell back in on Tuesday for Arnold and Mackreth.

We got results by being boringly hard to beat and leaving one up front in the hope of a break. I don't like it much but that is the manager's style and the way he has drilled the players and it appears to be working, so why change it instead of having the courage of his convictions?

Surprised but delighted with the result. Fantastic to see our new young striker get a couple and sounds like a few other good performances. Hopefully we can use it to kick on now.

Best wishes for the rest of the season, hope you get out of that league Asap

Hope you get a good draw. Your lot played football the right way and were just too good for us on the day. We were just not our usual selves and played some weird formation that was baffling to most of us and we just stood off you and let you knock it around. Couldn't cope with the speed you moved the ball up the pitch.

I thought Clay was poor yesterday. Just not really involved and lost possession practically every time he got the ball. Disley wasn't great, but was the better of our two midfielders. I'd have kept him on instead of Clay.

That said, Clay wasn't the only one of our players who was well below par yesterday so he doesn't deserve to be singled out particularly much. I notice that Mackreth has picked up a lot of criticism for his game yesterday. Obviously, he wasn't great but you'd have to say that he was much more involved than Arnold who did very little all game. I'd have brought Neilson on earlier but for Arnold, not Mackreth.

Can understand what you're saying but why play Arnold in a role that was clearly suited to Neilson? Neilson for Mackreth with Arnold going out wide would have been my substitution. I thought Clay was marginally better than Disley till his error for the second goal, then he seemed to lose faith in himself. I assume Magnay will be fit for Tuesday, if so will Parslow and Pell play instead of Clay and Disley?

After looking at the goals several times,

I was surprised how poor we defended,

Our defence has been our strongest unit this season,

I think it was just a bad day at the office,

Normal service will resume on Tuesday.
