That was a glimpse of what Scunthorpe can be, and just aren’t too often. Harrogate were garbage- favouring kick and rush at 100mph on a very ‘non-league’ park- and we coped admirably.
Felt the game took a while to settle down and on a park that size it was a little bit like pinball. We held the ball really well and were lucky to see Eisa on one of his ‘on-song’ nights. Harrogate struggled to contain Eisa and I thought he took his goal from open play very well after a cracking through pass from McAtee- the moment of the game for me.
Once again was very impressed by McGahey and Onarise who really have built up a good understanding. I thought young O’Malley had a very good game too and didn’t look at all phased.
No failures on the park this evening and the players as other have said looked comfortable with the system. Credit again to the side for their workrate and quick thinking at difficult times.
Yes we got a little bit of a rub of the green at times but I think after the last couple of season we deserve a little bit of that. We won’t be up against guff like Harrogate every week but the players should use the result as a springboard to push firmly away from trouble in the next few weeks. I hope the management resist the urge to tinker with this formation and work with it as the baseline foe the rest of the campaign.
Finally, good grief, but where did that commentator come from. Count Arthur Strong on nasty hallucinogenic steroids. There’s a global conspiracy against little Harrogate you know, at least three of the goals were dodgy. Sides can be second best in this league and still win you know. At non league level half of Town’s chances would have gone in. The ball keeps falling kindly for Scunthorpe and the people running the game are rubbish.
I bet if we all tune into the stream at 2 a.m. he’ll still be online, sitting in a darkened stadium, continuing his deranged monologue. Aural haemorrhoids.
