Just a few thoughts a few days later

Although starting brightly the ball spent more time in the air and noone in midfield seemed able to get it down and move it with pace or precision There were long periods of head tennis followed by unceremoniously booting of the ball. We seemed to be playing at a lower intensity against a team fired up.

There was a lack of urgency in the passing and movement. Not sure if they thought because they played well the week before it would all just come together again because they were playing a team near the bottom of the league.  There's also a tendency to shoot in areas when there are men far better placed - Storey only ever has one thought - one glaring attempt when two men free in the box.

Jordan White works hard and does link up well most of the time. He doesnt win headers when people are clambering all over him but he does a fairly decent job of holdign up if the ball is at his feet...which Im guessing was the idea? He was very unlucky with that hooked shot in second half - that would have been a cracker. Basically the loss came to a couple of individual errors but could easily have been turned round if more effort had been made to pull PT out of shape. There was a lack of players willing to make runs into space and those that did get into space were ignored or let down by poor precision passing under pressure. Some of that pressure was without doubt illegal and the ref ignored it for far too long. think everyone in the stands knew PT would be fired up and ready for a scrap so not sure why we. thought we could be so passive against them.

Anyway..hope that was a blip because things were looking good.

one positive to take is that Roddy Macgregor is starting to fit right in with the first team, you wouldn't be able to tell he was 17 if you didn't already know.

Think we maybe missed Keatings movement as he offers something different to the other front men who are all pretty similar in style.

The plaudits for Macgregor are fully deserved and hopefully has done enough for a extended run, maybe at the expense of a not fully fit Aaron Doran who has struggled to impose himself and spent Saturday as a virtual spectator.
