I’m not sure it’s as bad as people have made out. We’ve kept the ball extremely well and it’s a marked improvement on the past 2 games in that sense, we’ve lacked bite going forward but it’s far from a disaster. FGR had 2 good bits of play all half and scored from one, we’ve absolutely dominated possession against a possession based team.

Windsor and Tilley need to be smarter up top, I also don’t see the benefit of the extra CB tonight, we’d be better off with another body in the middle.

We need to find a way to play and quick. Like in the half time break. The last two and a half games have been poor.

One moment, one player switched off, and its cost us.  we are playing alot better than in the last two games for certain but no cutting edge.
Tilley and Windsor the only two players who can run at a player, the other 8 far to similar and playing safe.

Quoted from HertsGTFC
We’ve waited weeks for Hanson but I’m not convinced we’re playing to his strengths


Not sure Hanson has the mobility for this formation or any formation to be honest. His best days are past. Probably wouldn't get in any other League Two team's starting eleven. Look at him more as a last twenty minute chase the game target man nowadays. Never seen us play well with him up front. Personal preference would be subbing him off and getting more movement and pace on..

Quoted from Morris Minor
Playing like this will result in tears. We will be fighting relegation all season.
At the moment we are grateful Oldham, Southend and Scunthorpe look worse than us



I’m not convinced we will be but it ain’t going to be pretty. IH has a big squad but in reality not a lot to choose from at the moment. Only 3 experienced outfield starters tonight.

I think we've done ok - just gave them too much time and space for the goal.  Need Tilley and Windsor closer to Hanson when we play it long.  Unfortunately we lack pace and feel if Edwards was fit, we'd be winning this.
Get one back and we could get two.  Let's hope. UTM

Agree with this. If this game had come immediately after the two wins I don’t think there’d be the negativity we’re seeing on here and elsewhere tonight.

Absolute sh1te 45 mins. We have a middle of U23 prem kids who think like Wilkins pass it back or sideways as cant cope when closed down, They are behind the pace of the game, Taylor especially, number of times someone has made a run and been ignored is amazing. 7 times we had the ball wide about 20 yards out and passed it all the way to the half way line and 5 of those times it ended up within 20 yards of our own goal. You dont score goals if you kick in the same direction as the opposition.
Refs a homer, Tilly hasn't a clue how to defend or follow a runner, and Pollock isn't good enough to go charging up the pitch with the ball unfortuneately. Hanson has only once got it to one of our own players and we are incapable of passing a ball accurately more than 10 yards and even then its a lottery. Rant over lets hope Ollie sorts it.

Idehen passing straight forward to Hanson marked by two defenders because there are no channel runners. Windsor could switch with Hanson more to pull defenders around. Morton needs to move the ball quicker to get their defenders turning. All their players able to play facing our goal due to our glacial decision making. Best chance of a goal is to catch their keeper off his line or force an own goal. Tilley having to come too deep because our transition is non existent. 442 please, sub Idehen for Gomis.
