In all honesty there is no one among the dropped players that I feel sorry for - none have impressed me recently.

Having said that, there are very few players in the club who’ve impressed recently. But every one of those omissions is understandable.

Agree although I think McGuinness has been one of our better performers

He is probably the most unlucky. Not even on the bench - is he injured?

Afternoon all. Strange to bring in so many who have been out for so long. However, as much as I want to see the back of lambert I hope for the players sake they do a good job today. Don't expect a win but a better performance will do them the world of good

Kenlock is a different player lately, Norwood and Bennetts looking sharp

He’s finally starting to look like the player I’d hoped he would develop into after Knudsen had left us. Took his time lol

I never thought he'd make it. Delighted to be proved wrong. Had some very good games in this spell, doing very well today too.

He's having a poor game. Doesn't look like he can play in that position.

Bennetts is one of those players that once you give him the ball you might as well give up. He just runs and runs with it until he loses it. Never a quick pass.

Not a bad half. Bennetts and Parrott are the weak links really, nothing coming from them. Parrott overhits so many attempted passes, Bennetts yet to learn what a pass is. Everyone else has done OK. Norwood, Judge and Kenlock probably our best players.

Will be interesting to see if either side can get on top in the second half. That'll be the sign of a good manager....oh, that's f*cked it.

In all fairness we know how far we have fallen, but after the recent sh*te credit where credit is due. We are playing well against the in form team of the league we are in. Can't ask for more really

Not exactly what I expected but we appear to be doing ok albeit without scoring, but at least we’re competing which is more than we’ve been doing.

There’s no way Evans will sack Lambert whilst there are signs of “green shoots” unless of course the deed has already been done and his replacement is lined up.

Yeah bennetts final ball has been frustrating but he's causing problems and getting in good positions
