Enjoyable 0-0 against a good side. Positives were 4 of the back 5 and the midfield 3. Cook worked hard, Wes didn't and Ring is not an improvement on Fox. We looked sharper when Vernam & Rose came on and with a bit of quality/less panic could have won it.

As the manager has said, we are not far off. Interesting to see if we can add a bit of quality in the summer.

Very satisfying result against one of the supposed best sides  in the division, we matched them in every department and had our share of chances.
Macca superb again as was all the defence, a good team effort to be honest.
Ohman reminds me more every game of Pearson, he sticks his head where others wouldn’t.
Very happy again tonight, a good hard fought point.

Good game and basically held a promotion chasing team, but the best bit for me was driving home with Humberside phone in on the radio, a scunny fan sent a text in that they are looking forward to the local derby with us next season because they are going to be relegated, priceless.

Defensively very good. Blocked shots, clearance off the line. Good save by McKeown.

Going forward, poor until Akheem came on then they struggled to contain us. Vernam unlucky to see a curling long ranger go wide.

Really enjoyed that for a 0-0. Little bit frustrated when he took RHJ off for Collins. Feel we need to change the system at some point to go for 3 points , unless we are happy with a point!

Enjoyed that. First half was fairly even. The ref was equally awful for both teams. Bury always had a player in space and available to pass to but, Town were better on the break and could have nicked one just before half time.
Bury came out fired up in the second half and pressed Town back into our defensive third. Another wonder save from Macca and defenders blocking everything kept us in the game.
Fair result in the end. To hold Bury, who will probably be promoted, to a draw and keep a clean sheet is a good point.

A drab game against a team you wouldn’t have thought were 2nd. Although it became more entertaining in the last 10 mins when Rose came on

Ludvig, again very decent and could’ve been very different without him today. Ref was deffo a Manc

Far from drab it was a close game with nothing between the teams. Only minus for me was Thomas looked on another planet?? Apart from that we all performed brilliant. Jolley's counter attack very nearly paid off. Vernam was so unlucky with that curling effort just wide. Whilst Rose looked so dangerous their defence who previously  looked calm and collected suddenly started to panic. For a nil nil it was far better than last week. Forty nine points now nice to be able to relax, the players too can express themselves more.

Believe RHJ, my MOM, took a knock/was injured and that is why he went off. Defensively very good as they did didn’t create one clear opening but offensively we don’t look at the races. Disagree with posters comments re Cook who offered zilch and his ball control was appalling. Really have no idea of what position he is playing, stuck out wide, miles from Thomas, isolated and rarely in the penalty area just don’t get MJ’s tactics as Thomas looked disinterested for the second game running and offered no threat whatsoever. Harry grafted, but his distribution was poor on a number of occasions, and Woolly not at the races today which makes creating chances difficult.

Lively last 15 minutes and just lacked composure at crucial times on the break. Ring is a concern but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt and see how he gets on after a full pre-season and more time to adapt to English football.

We have Whitehousse for next year but need more quality in midfield and up front if next season is going to be one that sees us pushing for a play off place !!!!

RHJ improving with every game.  Clifton ran his socks off from the first whistle.  Thomas and Cook both became frustrated because of poor service again. Macca 2 excellent saves as usual. Rose speed is an asset in this type of game and should have been on earlier. Both linesmen and ref should be at Specsavers first thing Monday morning and give their fees to charity.  We need to practice crossing from the wing. Enjoyable but frustrating game.
