    Nobody has mentioned young Lewis when he came on at the start of the second half, thought he was decent and looks like he has a bright future in the game, very quick very skilful, well done lad.

    He had a tough job in fairness – it shows how bare the cupboard is when he had to come on and play left back – and he found it difficult – which was understandable, particularly given that he got precious little cover and Rovers were well on top for most of the half.

    To me he looks much more comfortable going forward.

    Young Lewis isn’t even a natural LB, he’d be more comfortable as an attacking LWB but he’s actually a Left winger. I thought he did well considering the circumstances.

    Burns will score more as well given he actually has an able bodied striker partner. I like him personally, loads of energy and his movement is really clever it’s just at times nobody spots him to pass the ball to him.

    We need a mobile defensive midfielder in ASAP, Rowe does his best but positionally he’s all over the place. Hippolyte has gone back to the old Hippolyte, Perry shouldn’t play again as he lacks the desire needed in a dog fight and with Beestin you can tell he’s nowhere near match fit, plus he was slack.

    Taft, don’t even get me started on him..absolute dog turd.

    Someone argued Perry should go a month or two ago and I defended the lad.
    Recent form looks like the after effects of Covid as a possibility, I suspect.

    Perry is a talented player but he’s also a luxury player. I think he has quality, technically he’s good and passing range is very good.

    I suspect he’d be top drawer in a really good side doing well who would be able to accommodate him, who would let him do what he’s good at but he’s no good in a team in the situation we’re in.

    Defensively he’s absolute crap, work rate isn’t the best and he’s fairly lightweight. Perry as an attacking midfielder with solid players around him then yes but not for us at this time.

    I just don’t see it. I did moan he wasn’t involved but I can see why now. On that showing I’d prefer Wood as he appears to be more well rounded.

    No way in a million years we could accommodate players like Perry at this time. I’m in no way wanting us to go the clogger route but we have to field players who are more solid than him at this moment in time.

    Wood was puzzling.
    Had Cox ruined him?
    There was a great deal of good stuff from the lad – though two or three possessions were lost in important positions.
    There is something to build on. He actually made more difference to the game than Hackney tends to.

    I thought Mattheson made some good moves, particularly in the first half

    Can’t ignore wood’s cross when we were 2-3 down and last attack. #shankedit

    Wood is an odd one. I thought he played really well in his debut but then he put on a shaky performance, as did most other people and he got frozen out.

    I wanted him gone but glad nobody at the club listened as he’s definitely got something about him. Wood’s pretty scrappy, energetic, fairly physical and has a more than a decent enough range of passing.

    I know Pugh covers the hard yards and gets his tackles in but I think Wood’s better. If we sign Grant or another experienced DCM with Feeney in there there’s plenty of experience now, I’d be tempted for Wood to get a shot as part of a 3 man midfield.

    I like Pugh’s work rate and tenacity but his shooting is woeful and technically he’s not great either.

    As mentioned above Wood had more effect than what Hackney does. Hackney does good bits and pieces in matches but that’s all they are, bits and pieces. I hope he keeps his place now because there’s promise there.

    There’s not a fag paper between them really. It’s just in the detail.

    What they’ve missed all along is a leader to organise them on field.

    Will we have one for Saturday?
