In summary, we didn't look very settled, however Atkinson, Timlin and Hurst keep things together in the 1st half. Lenny started ok, then made a huge faux pas and seemed to lose confidence, wasn't surprised when he was subbed in the 2nd half. Big loss in Prosser tonight, Phillips looked rather lacking in judgement and misplaced the ball a few times. Corr should definitely have scored near the end with a header that crept tantalisingly along the top of the crossbar. Conditions weren't helpful at all, goal kicks struggled to reach halfway line into the wind, we should have been playing more on the floor than we did.

Bentley - 6, some poor judgement tonight, a couple of times he should have called but didn't, putting his backs under pressure
White - 7, solid game from John, calms things down and shows strength when it's needed
Kiernan - 6, did ok, couple of misplaced passes
Prosser - 7, superhuman ability to put his body on the line for the cause, concussion I heard
Coker - 6, fits and starts, some good some a bit scrappy
Hurst - MOTM 8, doing some absolutely sublime stuff at the moment, long may it continue
Atkinson - 7, breaks up play very well and pushes on
Leonard - 6, confidence issues tonight
Timlin - 7, little pocket rocket, kept chasing and going. If he'd made the right choice in the end with a pass to Freddy (which was the easier option) we may be sitting here talking about a win
Straker - 6, not at the races for me
Corr - 6, controversial one, but did very little with any success all night, got pushed off of balls, got caught offside, should have scored that sitter at the end that went on off the top of the crossbar - I expect better.

Subs:
Phillips for Prosser - 5, worried me hugely
Woodrow for Leonard - 6, need to channel that enthusiasm
Eastwood for Straker - 6, livid at some of the ball play forward. Ball to feet guys, that's what we need.
