Parker should of been sent off today. There were at least 2 bookable challenges after his 1st yellow. As for the game. We created 4 good chances and wasted them... WH created one good chance and finished it. First half we were poor... Second half we were the better team by a distance. Oh well... back to the drawing board. Nice to see the Boj make an appearance at the end though. On a side note - Bridge's best game for us this... looked good defensively and good going forward.

The shots on target do not reflect our performance today, especially in the second half, when i thought we totally outplayed them. Missed chances cost us the game today along with one bad mistake from Given.

We were out played and without substance. I just wish our players would sort it out.

We play the same way every game so everyone knows how to defend against us, as Hughes would say "park a bus in front of the goal". Why don't we try something different? We don't seem to try get teams on the break anymore, we get to the attacking third let the opposition get back then play the ball back to our defence. We have good enough players to be better than this!!!!! Good to see Boj back.
