Initial thoughts - Pitch was terrible but we still managed to be second best, certainly in the second half.
First half was okay, fairly evenly matched, if Macca had taken that one on one chance Donny's heads might have dropped. Macca suddenly seems lacking in confidence, a shame he couldn't take his chance, it would have done him the world of good.
At the other end Donny were looking threatening and would have scored but for a fantastic double save from Oxley, the highlight off the game for me.
For much of the second half we were very poor, struggling to retain possession and making numerous bad individual errors. The Wordsworth sub perhaps seemed negative, but was probably the right call as we were being overrun at the time.
At the end we could have nicked it with a late 5min flurry. Wordsworth had a good shooting chance in the area but ballooned it over the bar. However it would have been a lucky win if we did snatch the 3 points.
In the end a point gained for me, but I'm disappointed with another sub par performance. What has changed since the Portsmouth game?:unsure:
BBC stats say we had 3 attempts on target from 10 efforts.
Is that correct ?
anyone like to enlighten me as to the 3 on target ?
Has CP lost the dressing room so soon?
Dire, pitch was a disaster, ref was a bit picky, team is playing as they did with PB. Has CP lost the dressing room so soon?
It's possible to have a couple of sub-par performances when playing on a bog masquerading as a pitch without having 'lost the dressing room'... we can't be starting on that already surely?
Absolutely right. I'm presuming that those suggesting he's lost the dressing room are really joking. A better result than last week and with a point today we are now on 45 with 11 games to play. The magic 50 is getting closer. As for the match itself everyone offered up some effort and Yearwood worked his socks off, he was my MoM. Not much else to report really apart from some critical saves from Oxley and Ferdinand and Turner getting more consistent every week, they are now a good pairing. On the other opinions front the ref gave some interesting decisions and ignored some other ones and Doncaster's kit probably would feature highly in my silly kits of the season league.
