It wasn't just the second goal Angol got easy possession, it was pretty much all game until Parkes came on. As I said before, Aaron has many good attributes for a defender, but at this level defending long straight balls into a centre forward is fundamental stuff and it is a recurring thing with Aaron. Matt might not have won every battle in his day, but at least the centre forward knew he had been in a battle.Regarding Aaron Martin, as a defender he isn't perfect, sometimes I think he could be more aggressive and his lack of pace concerns me however that could be said about Sweeney, Moxey, Parkes, Warren and Woodman, none of them are quick.
Matt Taylor seems to be irritated by the fact their striker was allowed to hold the ball up near the half way line for the second goal. If Martin had come clattering through the back of their striker and they had scored from the resulting free kick who would have got the blame ? Their striker passed the ball to their central midfielder who played it wide to an attacking player who cut inside and had a shot, if people are being consistent in terms of being critical you could ask if the likes of Sweeney, Williams and Collins could have done more to stop the shot.
Aaron Martin certainly isn't perfect and he has his weak points however we are a league 2 side, if people are going to demand near perfect defending from Martin they need to demand it from everyone else in our back line.
Matt Taylor was an excellent lower league defender however he didn't win every battle every week.
