First game in over a year and what stood out was the effort the players gave today . 100% all over the park which must of pleased  IH . Unfortunately quality in the final 3rd was severely lacking but I’m sure  IH can sort that out pretty quick . We looked a lot better with two up top . Vernam was my Mom by a million miles . Quality player but I’m sure those that have watched him more will know whether that’s his best position . Defence was solid as was the midfield .

I thought we did really well, as they were pressing us the whole game, and we were pressing them hard too, that's what made it look scrappy, but we got the goal we wanted and the three points.  UTM!

Probably didn't play as well as we have during the past few weeks but deserved the win in my opinion. Really happy for the boys and the coaching staff to finally get that monkey off our back and the crowd really got behind the team which was great.

Impressed with Robson and Vernham in spells hut thought Davis was outstanding today, absolutely solid and him and Waterfall dealt with everything thrown at them.


Great to see so many fans back inside BP, over 1000 more that against Crawly which is a great show of commitment to the club and the new manager. If we can add some creativity in midfield, another wide player and a goal poacher then we could still have a really good season. We are not that far away and a few wins can propel us up the table!

It does feel like we could really be into something!

Bring on Mansfield!

Charles wasn’t at his best today but still provided the assist. Gibson, Robson, Davis and Hess had decent games, Harry Clifton looks a bit lightweight in the holding role, we need better in there.

Robson was the best player on the pitch by a country mile

Not the best of games but it's amazing how your luck can change. Minutes after they miss the games best chance, we score from a scruffy bobbler. Vernam is starting to show what he can do, and we look pretty solid at the back, but there is much room for improvement. IH was just off to the side of us and he was shouting instructions as if he were in the dug out. Hess got the ball in the second half and IH shouted, now drive with it, which he did. He then laid the ball off to the wing and IH shouted, now run beyond them and of course he didn't; just stood and watched. So i think that will be one aspect IH will be working on, namely midfielders running beyond the strikers.

Thought they looked a half decent side, but we dug in and worked really hard for the win.

All smiles at the end. JF made things up with my nephew, who was the one he had the barney with at the Scunny game. We had a bit of a chat with him about stuff while IH was shaking hands with everybody. Amazing what a week and a win can do.

Onward and upward.

My 7th game this season and the first win (that didn't require a penalty shootout) that I've seen so my own curse is lifted. Pleased for limbrick and this is a massive stroke of luck for us really because it changes the complexion of Holloways job in a really positive way and training the next couple of days will have a real buzz about it and an away game with a real big away following too perfectly timed.

Salford looked much better than when we last played them, we seemed to be overthinking it on the attack but we kept going and going and really pleased with the team for that and seeing the opportunity to win the game. Robson and vernam played well and could see the difference rose made running round when he came on seemed to also give ogbu space to do a bit more.

Happy New year everyone, and did anyone hear what Holloway said before the game? our sound system is so crap, but saying that I don't miss the massive stack of deafening speakers

Robson best player by far.
I like Vernam and Rose looked good.

I'm not sure what Ogbu brings to the team, he's a strange player. He drew in some needed free kicks though.
3 points. We move up. Utm

People giving Ogbu a kicking? i thought he did alright.  He held the ball up ok and played a couple of decent balls.  Considering the guy hasnt had a run in the team yet he done more than Green has all season for me.
Think he needs to stop wondering out wide when he is the only striker and stay central, he is very capable of holding ball up and bringing others in to play.

Think whole team did ok today but nothing spectacular, probably the worst we have played in a few games and won so hopefully turning the corner now.

MOM for me today goes to either Hendry or Robson. but no one played bad just scrappy at times
