That is so true Mike.. Earlier in the game a cross came over from the left under his bar which he made a real hash of also.

i think he got both hands to it, the ball went through his hands and out for a corner..

Bart as captain my ar.....se

I’d say that was a good point ( having given once the opposition a gift wrapped goal). The reason I think was in the end a very good point was this was the team’s 3rd tough game in under 7 days. I detected a leg weary side when reflecting upon our performance. Yet somehow we still fought like tigers until well into injury time , and got our just deserts for that too.

A weeks “ relative rest” now , time to re group and focus on the next game, I’ll take Town to take all 3 points at Wigan.

Just saw the highlights. For me, Knudsen was at fault for the blunder. You should never head the ball into such a dangerous area regardless of the Keeper’s position.

On another note, I was actually quite impressed with some of Town’s build up play. Judge looks like he commands the midfield...I hope he does stay.

We just need a couple goal scorers!

We got "goalscorers" in the team : only problem being, they don't score freakin' goals.

Only recent you had Sears as primary attacker, we brought in a whole host of names such as Jackson, Harrison, Quaner, Lankester, Keane etc and out of them you're only going to get one or two goals a game - at best - out the entire lot. Not all up on the loan deals situation but guessing one or two will go back to their rightful employers in the next close season which may leave a void in certain areas.

Would be sorry to see him vacate but Bialkowski continues to come to the fore regards errors during game time, and as for one or two others, there doesn't seem a match that goes by where they don't come in for ridicule. Needs a real fix in the summer, the squad as it is may not be of standard to perform in League One.

Jackson, Harrison and Lankester are Town players, I would like to see Harrison given plenty of game time now, there is no point playing Keane and Quaner if they're not going to be about next year, I guess they were last roll of the dice loan signings. Though maybe Keane and Harrison at top would let the team do better and gain some confidence perhaps too, never been keen on Jackson, but Harrison has at least scored goals in League 1 before.

Totally agree Ricco about Harrison. I'd like to see him starting with Keane, who while not prolific is very skillful on the ball and I feel could form an excellent pairing with Harrison. Harrison will score goals if given the bullets. He proved it for Bristol Rovers last season and scored an excellent goal in the pre season v West Ham (and also nearly scored a second with a diving header which hit the post). I feel that if he hadn't been injured for a couple of months we wouldn't be in the position we're in now ,at least not 9 points adrift, even if we were still bottom.

Caption: I dunno about you mate, but this caption competition is rubbish. I mean, what sort of IQs are we talking about as far as the judges are concerned? My captions are certainly funnier than everyone else’s. My mum always said, be who you want to be son. Anyway, did the Stoke fans say we could get into the party?
