I thought it was a bloody awful game from two defensive teams who were desperate not to lose. Did either keeper make a save during the whole 2 hours?
Can't fault towns commitment but thought disley and Browns performances were strewn with errors,Palmer offered ver little whilst toto continues to survive by the seat of his pants. Real shame that Arnold was so little involved and not the danger man he could be, because he was asked to sit so deep. Thought even magnay was below par, whilst shop was well dealt with by their centre backs.the left back had mckreth in his pocket. Crossing and corners were poor.
Pearson was motm by a country mile IMHO.  Played a lot of football at the back but failed miserably to do anything meaningful in the attacking half. Rovers were even worse . Quite embarrassing the amount of shanks, passes played straight out of play, players falling over their own feet, miss kicks .the joy of non league football eh?

Worth noting it is non league football after all....................... Agree with Pearson as MOTM though.

I think as stated the point is THIS IS NON LEAGUE FOOTBALL.

I agree Hursts negative awayday tactics do your head in but on the day the team did well, they outplayed Briistol Rovers the stronger team.  

I just wish we had decided to shoot when we were in the box!!

Of course there were errors today, their were lots of nerves so it was to be expected.  Overall we still deserved to win.

Very proud of the players and the magnificent effort they put in

Couldn't disagree more about Toto I thought he was brilliant and probably our MOM.

We weren't far off but just lacked what we lacked all season to make the difference - that Akinde/Vardy/Hearn/Andre Gray/Tubbs quality striker.

I thought Palmer didn't do that bad considering the poor effort from both wide men who hardly got a decent cross into the area all game.

When we were lumping it forward it was usually Palmer getting his head to it, when he went off we hardly won a header for the rest of the game.

Lets not forget it was a good run and effort to beat the keeper when the cheating tw@t should have walked.

Have to be honest, i thought our two forwards were moderate today,Shop won a few headers and tried
hard, but neither he or Palmer held the ball up well enough today, remember thinking to myself 'couldn't trap
a bag of cement' a good few times today, perhaps the service to them wasn't the greatest, but its that area
of the pitch, plus an attack minded midfielder that is the reason we face  at least another season in the non
league. IMO.
