I'm at a loss as to how we lost yesterday.
We had a great start, with a tremendous pass from Polworth that set Walsh up, and he took it well.
Falkirk's two first half goals were soft. Ridgers should have claimed the cross that led to the first, and Rooney seemed favourite to deal with the ball that resulted in the second.
We started the second half well, and looked hungry, even moving the ball fast at times. Too often, we played it square, and other than Polworth and Rooney seemed reluctant to take players on and drive forwards.
Oakley came very close before he scored, and Chalmers had a shot that looked close from where I was.
I didn't expect Welsh to be subbed, but Trafford had one of his better games when he came on. He gave the foul away that led to he goal, but it was a very soft award by the ref. How the winning goal got in at the back post I don't know. I think it was another soft goal.
Falkirk showed no desire to win the game, and we should have won it quite comfortably, but our defence suddenly seems frail or error prone.
Ridgers seems below par, Rooney is better going forward, and we had a back three for most of the second half. Donaldson and McCart were ok, and I'd pair them in the centre of defence.
Polworth was the pick of the midfield, but there was little directness from Chalmers, Walsh or Doran. Welsh was fine.
Up front, Oakley was trying, but had little service.
In some ways, losing the unbeaten tag may ease some pressure and allow us to kick on. Time will tell!
