Last night's result could impact the team in one of two ways. It could demotivate them, and Saturday's game will be a hard watch, or it could work the other way and they think 'enough' and tear Aldershot apart. I'm hoping for the latter.
When I look back on last night's game now I remember the diving header from Harry where I thought 'get in', and then Murph's header where I thought 'Knob', but because Murphy and Cardwell are strikers, they will be desperate to stick the ball home very soon. We had the chances and didn't convert, but that was definitely an improvement on the previous game where we didn't even make the chances. There have been a lot of comments on Fonguck's performance, or lack of it, but he certainly gave Bridge far more freedom by him being there. This in turn helped Jack cross the ball earlier, and crosses make chances! For some reason he decided to revert to not crossing in the second half, but there you go. I won't dwell on their penalty again, or for that matter, ours, but had our two first half headers gone in, together with our penalty, we would have come home with three points and smilie faces on the coach and on here.
As for the commencement of the 'Maher out' posts, each to their own opinion, but I would say 'get a ****ing life'. It will be difficult to make the last play-off place now, but still not impossible. So we go again against Aldershot and let's see what happens on the reaction front. Rose tinted glasses? maybe, but I feel better now for off loading that brain dump as we are only a little way off being play-off class, be it down to confidence or a new player or two, and none of us expected this amount of progress when the season started.
