Same as Tuesdays game, they chased & harried us we couldn't get going.

Great goal, brilliant long ball onto Dis's head & he put it away.

Not a lot else to say, we defended well, Magnay is a class above this league. Nobody had a bad game athough Pitman struggled in the 2nd. half.

Oh... & another poor ref made the game worse.

First half was absolutely awful.
Slight improvement in the second half.
But, what the hell, three points is what matters now.
The referee was the worst of the season.

Excellent work from Magnay and Disley for the goal aside it was a dire game. We were toothless in attack and I don't remember their keeper needing to make a save. John Lewis and Pittman were both poor and isolated up front. We either hoofed it up to no effect or tried to play on the ground where we were too slow in movement and possession to create anything.

We rode our luck especially when Hurst brought Parslow on for John Lewis and changed formation to 5-4-1. Fortunately for Mr Negative they got a player sent off almost immediately after the substitution, but we still sat back, invited pressure and were very lucky when they flashed a late free header wide. It was clear to see we needed more of a presence up front to hold up the ball and keep the pressure on 10 man Braintree. Ollie Palmer could have done this, but yet again Hurst took the defensive option and we just about got away with it.

Thankfully we've only got 1 home game next month so we may all be spared from further underwhelming games at Blundell Park for a bit. Thank God for Carl Magnay.

Awful game not helped by terrible gamesmanship and spoiling tactics by Braintree and the worst referee ive ever seen. Disley man of the match for me closing followed by Magnay and Pearson, cant think of anyone else who had a decent game, although I thought Scott Brown made a difference when he came on, he got amongst them and roughed them up a bit. We are winning but Christ its boring, still think we will make the play-offs, but don't really fancy our chances in them to be honest.

First half was a total non-event apart from the comedy goal mouth scramble when they had about 3 chances to score and failed with all of them. Apart from that, not one shot, cross or pass of any note from anyone.

Second half started great with our two best players creating and scoring the only goal of the game. We were then mostly outplayed for the next 40 mins without them looking like they could get an equaliser. Don't think either keeper had a shot to save in 95 mins and it was even worse then Tues night if that's possible. LJL was rubbish again and Pittman looked done in by the hour mark, so what does Hurst do? Brings on flipping Parslow at home against a very limited Braintree. Well done Paul, that's what i pay my entrance fee for.

Defence look solid. Midfield limited and the strikers just don't look dangerous at any time. They won everything at the back from the many many balls we punted on to their heads and their No 20 looked very good for them.

All in all, another dire home game, devoid of any skill or guile, apart from one decent cross and a great finish from Dis, who was my MOM. We got behind them once and scored.

3 points is about the only good thing to come out of that dismal game.

Very economical today. Great goal. Ref was an absolute idiot. Magnay MOM again.

My favourite bit was when John-Lewis went off the bloke behind who had been asking Hurst to take him off all game then said it was an awful decision when he heard Parslow was replacing him.

yeh think the team did fairly well in the second half, thought both the front two were a bit static at times, would've thought Palmer would be have suited the game better to come on than jolley, when they didn't give us much space to run around in and our only goal came from one of our few headers
