Yeah, echo what has been said but i fear we have left it too late to mount a promotion charge unless we do a Mansfield, whilst beating Barnet again and Bristol at home. It's so frustrating having seen us drop so many points at home to average opposition. We could be romping this league ala Crawley and Fleetwood. We have the tools and need to use them better than we have been. If it is to be the play offs again, then we need to go into them with the same attitude as yesterday

Credit to the team, manager and the fans for a great game. We looked fit and strong and ready for the run in. Let's hope it continues.

I thought Palmer made all difference attacking wise yesterday with his non stop running and the ability to hold on to the ball, he took a lot of the pressure off the shop in so much as he had time to ferret about behind Ollie and join him as a twin strike force, normally its the find Lennie`s head game and see what comes of it today we had a plan B, first time all season.

The defense was magnificent again as usual, but if I was to be just a little critical it would be that IMO Parslow looked what he was on the day a centre back playing out of position but he did OK, and IMO Macca should have waited a split second longer before commiting himself for the spot kick as the pace of the ball was not that fast.

Lastly well done PH you out thought Allen,  and the club for lifting the atmosphere to a flag waving party, Oh how I would have loved the same against Lincoln

I'm not Hurst's biggest fan, but that got the weekend off to a great start. Whatever he did differently yesterday he should take credit for.

More of the same please!  

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.

If Hurst can inspire the team to play like that the majority of the time he will change opinions. More of the Barnet performance between now and end of Season we will be in play offs performances like Lincoln and we will be down here next season.
Up to team/management team now which route we take....

I just wonder how much of that higher tempo is down to the players.

For all we know, Hurst might send his team out there every game to play with the same intensity as we saw yesterday.

He can ask a lot of the players; he can instruct them; he can tell them what to do, but ultimately when they cross that white line it's up to them. He loses an element of control (like every manager does) and has to rely on them carrying out the duties he's given them.

I only say this because the players seem to be frustrated with themselves that they can't find the consistency, rather than highlighting any changes that the manager made to their approach.

There's no doubt yesterday could be a catalyst for the sort of run that we need to get right back into title contention and, going on the little bit of Twitter activity I saw after the game, the players know that has to be the standard for the rest of the season. But I also can't help feeling that, as well as the team played, the crowd also did its job by sticking with them even when we went behind. I don't know whether that was because there wasn't the expectation of victory that there might be against other teams. But what I hope is that yesterday's result will help us all to pull together and back this team over the next three months or so.

Palmer's mobility and willingness to hold up the ball gives J L-L more time and room, and the width was evident yesterday - Aswad could have had a field day on the left flank yesterday, and three more accurate crosses would have given Palmer at least a hat-trick.

Loads of quick challenges and 90 minutes tracking and running - great to see - always a free player going FORWARD for a pass.

Nuneaton next, the mother of all bogey teams, we have only beaten them one in five attempts in the league.


Hopefully he will be more upbeat for this game
