What a load of ****. How Brown couldn't see the need for changes I don't know, and the system we started with didn't work at all, while the performances of the players were poor Brown will have to shoulder a lot of the blame as well. I was fortunate enough not to be at the Millwall game but that's the first time I've seen Barrett struggle as much, but that's probably just as much down to playing so many games without a rest.

The timing of the goals conceded was what killed us, just before half time changed a lot and then two rapidly after changing formation and before there was a chance for it to make a difference. Very, very poor and never looked like improving.

Bentley 5.5 At fault for the third, possibly could have done better at his near post for the first but hard to tell from my view.
White 6 Struggled when part of a back three and looked off the pace first half.
Thompson 7 The only one to come out of it with any credit, worked hard and won almost every tackle and header.
Barrett 5 Lacked the pace and almost became a liability at times because of it.
Coker 6 Still doesn't look fully fit and seemed hesitant compared to normal.
Rea 5.5 Sloppy passing and in possession, didn't offer the protection the back four needed.
Atkinson 5 Didn't really attack and didn't really defend, Worrall's introduction was an improvement
Leonard 6 Worked hard but was almost doing the work that Rea and Atkinson should have been doing at times.
Payne 6.5 Best attacking threat but was up against some big lumps who just blocked him off or kicked lumps out of him, dangerous with the ball at his feet.
Hunt 6 Won his headers but barely ever got the ball to his feet to do anything with it.
Mooney 5.5 Similar to Hunt, just spent half of his game offside as well.

Worrall 6.5 Added width and pace which was much needed but would have hoped to get more of the ball on the break.
Deegan 6 Held things up in the middle, a stupid yellow and didn't make much difference going forwards, would rather have had Timlin in the situation so hopefully he'll be back soon
Pigott 5.5 Didn't really show anything to suggest he'll be missed, but struggled with having the ball hoofed towards him as usual.

Several changes needed for next week, and the sooner Timlin is back the better for me. Bolger/Prosser for Barrett and McLoughlin/Worrall to start in midfield please.
