Well earned point by a well organised Town side and a good marker to how we are progressing.

Would love to talk more about the side but feeling very flat as towards the end the lads behind us who wanted to wind up my lad to the point of an incident, one of them the same te@t who was fighting at half time at Chesterfield. A couple of them well known “faces” who do the same most weeks.

Have a ticket for next week but after that experience with our own “support” doubt I’ll go away for a bit

Anyway we’ll done to the lads.

UTM!

Despite the referee's worst efforts that was a decent game of football and as Herts says, a good way to gauge what our potential is this season.

Started both halves the brighter team - first half particularly - without really creating too many clear cut opportunities.

Defence looked solid and apart from one free header for Ameobi in the second half we marshalled them pretty well.

A bit better quality/decision making in the final third and we'll have a pretty decent shout of the play off's.

Off topic but am thinking of starting a crowdfunder for some medical research into why footballers seem to fall over at the least physical contact and additionally why officials will give a free kick for that sort of balderdash instead of just laughing and waving play on.

Not a great game but a decent result. Thought we were the better side, we just lack a cutting edge. If they are top 3 standard, we are not far away. Feel we might need to add 1 or 2 real quality signings though. Great effort from the team.

Very entertaining 0-0 draw with Town probably just on top overall. Expected better from County who seemed content to launch long balls to Amoebi who was handled very well by Clark and Collins. Only real chance was from Summerfield's deflected effort in the first half although I'm not sure how their keeper ended up with the ball in his hands in a goalmouth melee in the first period.
Bit of a heart in mouth moment when Macca careered out of his goal to bring down their lad who was going away from goal.
Man of the Match....by an absolute country mile Summerfield. Energy, commitment, decent dead ball delivery and some crisp passing. Superb!!!


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

I’d agree with Barra on Summerfield the way he reads the game and pops up to disrupt opposition attacks or sweep up threatening situations is really impressive and has possibly contributed to a better defensive effort lately.

Not sure if he’s our best player at the moment but he’s certainly the fittest, never stops running.

After a few too many 0-0s this season I never thought I’d be as chuffed tonight as I am but I’d have snapped your hands off for a point today. A good result and felt we were the better team.

Not massively impressed by County and really pleased with our defensive performance that restricted them to 0 shots on target. They did keep us fairly quiet though I’ll give them that.

I think Matt will be kicking himself after pulling out of the aerial challenge with the keeper - and so will the staff and players I should think! Summerfield was ace. Again.

Good away following and noise. Quite happy tonight and strongly considering a jaunt darn sarf next week now.
