Beyond poor. Whole game was lacking in quality beyond belief other than one moment from Ryan Leonard which decided the game. Other than that, you'll find better at Priory Park tomorrow. Pitch means we couldn't get it down and play and the wind meant we couldn't go long, and Bury were the same only even more disjointed than us.

They most likely would have been ahead had Leonard not bust a gut to get back and cover for Timlin's shocking free kick and then his strike was one of the best he's had and that's saying something.

Oxley 7 One good save, nothing else to do
Demetriou 7 Generally good, couple of wayward crosses
White 7 Solid, physical battle but handled it well
Ferdinand 7 Looked better for the break, one or two moments where he looked shakey but won a lot in the air
Timlin 4 Not a left back and gave the ball away too easily
Wright 7 Got forward well but still seems unsure where he should be playing
Leonard 9 Best player in the squad by a mile, we'd be in the bottom four without him
Wordsworth 5 Game passed him by completely, not the best conditions for him but he had no influence
Kightly 6.5 Looked rusty, moments of skill but overdid it on a few occasions
Cox 6 Good work rate and that was key to the goal, that was his only contribution
Fortune 6 Worked hard, no threat

Ranger 6 Strong and stood it up but awful first touch
McLaughlin 7 Some good deliveries into the vox
Robinson N/A Didn't touch the ball

Will be shocked if anyone remembers this game in a fortnight, one of the worst I've seen at Roots Hall in a while. 3 points is a massive positive, though not a lot else to take from that.
