Well very much an end of season performance.
Back 5 looked dodgy IMO when pressured Parslow has the touch of a elephant! In midfield Paddy looked like someone who didn't want to be there, Brown ran about a lot but didn't do much. Clay was ok but seen him play better. Chappell did well I thought and Mackreth looked on it when he came on. Strikers well I now see what Hurst doesn't like about Palmer. Pittman looked better when Palmer went off.
Note the wind was an issue but Southport managed the conditions better. Overall fair result. UTM

Agree with most of that. Pearson and Gowling looked like strangers. magnay nor Parslow looked comfortable.

Paddy had the chance to show what he can do but fell flat.

Second half Southport responded to a half time rocket, got in our faces and took the game to us. We didn't really have the stomach for the fight for long periods.

Brown got two assists, the 2nd was the type of corner we have been crying out for all season, Chapple looked lively enough and should have had a penalty(?), Palmer continues to disappoint and Pittman doesn't look anything like th employer he was early in the season. A headache as to who partners the Shop on the play offs? Maybe Hannah will get a start next week?

I would be surprised if any Town fan was shocked at the performance, a nothing game, a dead rubber and as expected in showed

The players to emerge with the most credit were Disley, John-Lewis, Arnold, Mackreth

Scored from a corner though! If we can just remember how we did it......might come in handy for the future.

Worrying that we were not very strong at the back.  Defending is supposed to be our strength over the whole season generally.  We have a player but have to make the most of this.

Big Problems up front.......... Everyone else in the play off mix are scoring a few home and away our strikers have dried up. So out of the six we have Palmer not sure TBH, Lenny has regressed to the Lenny of last year, JP......Good lad but has been better, Jolley? shame he is injured as I would have liked to have seen him down the middle as he looks like he has quick feet if nothing else. So next week throw in Ross and Hamish? Thought Ross should have had a start today TBH.

First half we were in no difficulty at all. I cannot remember Maccas goal being threatened. Having said that we weren't much better. Brown deserves credit for the ball to Chapple for Town's first goal.

Second half they went for the jugular from the kick off and we managed our seemingly usual "Back off the man with the ball". It was a great finish but no-one in a blue shirt got within five yards of him. Macca just rooted to the spot.
Their second goal was all Macca's fault-flapped at the ball only succeeding in setting up their lad who couldn't believe his luck!
Hurst gets flak for his subs or more correctly lack of but got it bang on today. I've made no secret of the fact that I think Mackreth is no better than any of the three previous number sevens but he was bloody good today-the only Town player prepared to run at the opposition and they couldn't handle him!
Great corner from Brown and a brilliant header from Pearson.
2-2 a fair result in the end. Third place secured.
Last word about the ref. The decision to award a free kick against Chapple after he'd got behind the defender who then hauled him down has to be the worst single decision I've seen in a season absolutely rife with them. Totally bottled it...


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Could not go today as working till noon but sh1t that Chappell free kick decision must have been bad if that's the worst seen this year as the refs have been effing crap in the Conference.

Mackreth is much maligned. Too much. IMO. Seems to crop up with valuable contributions often enough.

Never noticed it before but right back in September when we played Aldershot it was his harrying of their fullback and CD that led to the ball bearing cleared to Neilson. The first goal at Barnet was down to his persistence. His goal and assist v Gateshead. Sure he's not perfect (but who is in this squad). Don't be surprised if he does the biz in the play off final.


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.

Jack is a great lad but more than most he is a confidence player he has the ability to go round people but often cuts inside but if he can score screamers like that one the other week I'll forgive him lol.

Needs help when teams double up on him sometimes when Magg's as the ball I am sure is hoping Jack will make a run down the line instead of coming  short most of the time.
