Highlights from the game Shaun's surging run and the Magnay/Disley combination for the goal, other than that it was pretty poor. 3 points though so I am not complaining....well only about that clown with the whistle!!

Regarding the referee (John Brooks). I was surprised to see he's more commonly a linesman and has officiated in the Premier League - it was him who told Lescott to thank the fans who had paid £62 and got suspended. He's just qualified to be a lino in the Champions League - but made the step-up to being a ref in the Conference this season. Seems odd how he can be a lino at the top of the club game but be a ref down here, and a poor one at that.

I thought the ref as poor but inconsistently poor, not sure if he has a disability of some sort but it appeared to me that he could only point one way and most of the free kicks he gave were for the team attacking the pontoon, first half they got the majority second half we did.

First half was crying out for one of our CMs to grab the game by the scruff of its neck. Absolutely crying out for one, for the positives of Disley and Clay neither are players that will almost pull the whole team forward. For that reason, for me Brown has to come back into the team for the Woking game.
It was quite odd, in the sense that Braintree never really had a go at us especially considering we scored relatively early in the second half you'd expect that the game would open up but Braintree never really had a go at us. Totally not the case, which if i was a Braintree fan i'd be absolutely fuming about because I thought we looked really up for the taking yesterday.
One bit of class from Magnay and Disley won us the game today, doesn't matter if you win 1-0 or 10-0. 3 Points on the board and potentially 3 points closer to getting out of this league.

I had to rely on commentary but this was very much the sense I got, similarly with the Telford game. It sounded like a pretty poor Town display but I think the opponents lack of interest in having a go themselves must surely play a part in that. Any team can make it tough if their only aim is to not concede, even when 1-0 down.

The issue was they had 3 central midfielders up against Disley & Clay. We often struggle when a team plays 4-5-1 against our 4-4-2. Movement and width especially from our full backs can nullify it but our full backs are not really attacking ones who get up and stretch the game.

Some say we shouldn't worry about what the opposition do and just play our own game, I agree we shouldn't worry & we need to adapt but in the modern game attacking full backs are key. We have two of the strongest defenders but we do lack when teams set up 4-5-1.

For most of the game we had 4 defenders against their one striker, therefore were outnumbered in midfield

We were truly dismal yesterday and just sneaked the win but played some pretty good stuff at times against Telford (mostly in the first half) without tearing up any trees and should have won much more comfortably. If the radio commentary indicated we were poor throughout the game on Tuesday, then you've been given the wrong impression.

Braintree were a much, much better team than Telford. Which wouldn't be hard, admittedly.

For what it's worth, considering we had 3 of the forward line ( Pitman , Arnold and Makreth ) very much underperforming , then it was a decent result. Pitman should have been replaced after 60 mins but PH decided to stick with him which is typical of his cautious approach. I don't disagree with his decision to bring on Parslow to shore up the mid-field in the closing stages but if you are going to lay a lone striker to hold up the ball then I would rather it was LJL than Pitman. Pitman was static for most of the game and although LJL didn't play at his best he was well controlled by their centre-backs. At least it's another 3 points and that is the priority at this stage of the season.
