The ultimate ‘result is more important than the performance’ game. But it’s nice to see out 90 minutes without too many dramas.

The back three all did great, Thompson was excellent and Rose wore his heart on his sleeve as ever. Rodgers deserved MoM for me, back to early season form.

Will enjoy a couple of beers tonight 😎

Possibly the shittest game of football that I've ever seen and, though we defended well enough, I thought we were pretty poor all round.

Says a lot about FGR that they weren't even capable of having an effort on target against us, even with two thirds possession, but we'll need to play a lot better than that to keep winning points this season.

Pleased for Rogers who I'd agree was Man of the Match as he did really well for the goal, got his foot in and won his headers well. Let's hope it spurs him on for the rest of the season.

Wasnt pretty, but we dug in, we were solid, and we got 3 valuable points.

Thought the 3 centre backs had good games, Wilson led the line well but Rose my MOM. A true captains performance leading from the front.

They were a very poor side, and it was simply must win, and we did just that.

Credit to Artell who eventually has dropped his play from the back mantra.

Enjoy your weekends

Thompson, Rose and the CB’s all played well.

It wasn’t pretty and only one shot on target all game which we thankfully scored.

Artell interview good apart from the fact he said the performance is just as important as the result. Our position at this point of the season give me a crap game with a 1-0 win and it being the only shot on target all game.

Did what we had to do to win the game. And that's thay really.

Poor in possession, carried Andrews who was a liability throughout, and Clifton was so wasteful with the ball. But Rodgers excellent at the back.

Probably won't see many games where both keepers have so little to do, but couldn't give a toss. All that was needed today was 3 points and we got them.

Gritty game, thought they were poor but I'll take the result and a clean sheet which will hopefully give Cartwright a bit of confidence going into the remaining games.

Massive win.

Credit to the players and the coaching staff. Not out of it yet, but a huge step.

Surprised nobody has mentioned Wilson I thought he was excellent.

Danny Rose. All season. 100%. Highest of standards. Just fantastic. God knows where we’d be without him. Thank you Danny. Talk about leading by example. Colossus of a pro.
So, so relieved and grateful for 3 points.

Yeah Wilson did very well considering the service from midfield to him today was non-existent. If we can sort out the midfield trio and stick with that back 5 (as indecisive as Cartwright looked all match) we might actually have a chance of moving up the table between now and the end of the season.

Not a game you’d want to see every week but a result you’d take every week up until the end of April at the minute.

Rose, Mullarkey, Rodgers and Wilson were terrific. The midfield couldn’t string a decent pass between them but at least battled well and the subs did exactly what we needed. Andrews had a shocker first half but credit to him, he was much better in the second.

I don’t think we’ve seen the last of the passing football, nor do I want to see the back of it, but I’ve a strong feeling it won’t return until we’re safe and Artell deems us ready to play it properly. He’s had a lot of abuse, but he’s changed the way we play extremely quickly and done what needed to be done in the circumstances. Sure there’ll be some out there willing him to fail regardless.

An absolutely huge 3 points and hopefully a big step towards avoiding relegation with a chunk of the season left to go, which I’ve always felt we’d do.

One last thing, I couldn’t make it today so watched on iFollow. Tonduer has been the voice of the club for many years but it’s time to hang up the mic. Aside from his horrendous bias towards certain players & digging out others. He very rarely describes the game accurately whatsoever, the poor people listening on the radio are hearing something completely different to the reality.
