Apart from his theatrics, their keeper had a tidy game and kept them in it. No chance with either goal, but did he get a bit of a hand on the McAtee rocket?

The second goal was even better than I remember it, but was a tad overshadowed by the one that preceded it.

I know we have had a really poor run, but we have seen some great footy at BP and some cracking goals. Can't say it hasn't been entertaining in the main.

I've always been impressed with their keeper as a neutral and often at the level below. A master of the art of time wasting and gets involved in fan banter. Clapped the booing Main Stand at half time and came out early to give the Pontoon a round of applause until McAtee said "hold my beer."

To be fair, he didn't know much about that save at the end of the first half but the one where he rushed out to the oncoming Taylor was a great bit of goalkeeping.

Great save from Crocombe just before half time.

We perhaps made it easier for him to get something on it at times by hitting the ball straight at him, I'm not sure how much he knew about the Waterfall header he hooked away about to hit him in the face lol. Really wasn't impressed with him falling over constantly when we had a second chance at goal from a rebound, less so with the ref giving them the ball each time he did it.

Definitely no chance with the goals but if those were at the other end I'm sure the former apprentice goalkeepers on the forum would be saying he should have saved it and that the coaches should be training them right.

Master of the art of time wasting - fair enough I guess if you’re behind but when you’re 5 minutes in to the game and it’s 0-0 it’s not a good look.

He doubled down on it in the second half and did it a few times when losing as well. Didn’t see the manager telling him to get a move on which was quite strange. Summed up their attitude to the match on Saturday. Looked and played like they didn’t really care about getting a result.

Should have been more than 2-0, is my main takeaway from that. I love it when Pearson charges forward like that; always catches the opposition completely off guard as he’s the person on the pitch who always looks least likely to do such a thing. He really should have laid the ball off to Sousa to his left, but you can see him thinking “fúck it, I’m having this”.

Only remaining question for me is why the players came out onto the wrong half of the pitch? Why was that, and have I missed something and it’s been going on for a while? Looked weird.

Didn't like the antics from their 'keeper but that save from Waterfall was top drawer.  On live showing I thought it just hit him but the replays show great reflexes to tip that over.  

I had Waterfall for first goal at 25/1 so absolutely delighted to see how good that save was...

That first goal was a thing of beauty.

If that had been scored in The Premier League, Gary Lineker et al would be w@nking over that for ages.
