I'm glad we got the two goals back and showed some fight. The first 50 odd minutes before Abrahams came on sounded like we had nothing to offer and that substitution seemed to change our attitude and approach. We should play with that approach from 0-0 though, not when we are 3-0 down. Is Collins making a claim for his first team place while Boateng is out? He has proven far more useful than L.Martin.

Today was always going to be a game we would probably lose, but I'm glad we got to have a look at how we can do things differently. I'd like us to ditch the route 1 tactic and play on the floor more, our players are just so much better doing that. Dtockley on pens from now on, Sweeney can take a great pen but has been found out.

If you defend like we did in the first half you don't deserve anything, we got what we deserved despite our second half efforts.

Missed Arron Martin big time. I worry about our lack of depth in the squad.

Tuesday's game needs to see us back on track ahead of the visit of Northampton.

First game I’ve seen in a while and the first 60 minutes was absolute rubbish , such is life.

From what I witnessed I don’t think Hamon is the answer when Pym can’t play and if Pym goes I’m not convinced he’s good enough to be no1

A decent rally for the last 20 minutes but it was game over at HT.

New stand looks good
