A very low rating for Cox.
After testing out and failing with a multitude of formations he goes 4 – 4 – 2 and things start to work. The side has shape.
Along comes a match with, arguably, the most experienced side we’ve faced – and into experimental mode we go. Doomed from the start.
I concentrate on Spence a great deal and thought he had a decent game.
Our problem in CM was perfectly explained by Newey – there is only so much a midfielder can do when swamped.
(I suggested that we should have made a sub before half time – Newey on for Cox. That guy’s grasp of football is surely the best we’ve ever heard on local broadcasting.)
Beestin looked as though he’d played too many games in quick succession.
Bedeau was poor.
I cannot criticise Loft. He grafted non-stop. Was useful and if he ever gets a bit of support might just turn into a good player.
Gilliead is far and away our best player. Lovely to watch.
Ref: good. Was not a nitpicker like so many we’ve seen this season.
