Apparently Morsy far from happy with Evans part in conceding the goal, Woolfy closed down while trying to play it out from the back.

Sounds like we're playing quite well, just lacking a bit in final third.

We seem.to be too lethargic..and when we get in to final third. Not clinical. Worrying..we Need that good goal finisher ..if we too late getting him in .we may find ourselves trying to play catch up and we know how we are On that score .I think the inexperience of mckenna will sadly be exposed

Really? 2 games into pre season friendlies and you are making sweeping statements about McKenna's expertise and being worried? Give me (and him) a break! I sincerely hope your season ticket isn't next to mine cos you will have us all throwing ourselves off the top of the SBR before the first week is out! Pre season is just that. I have seen us win all of them and start the season awfully and lose all of them and start like world beaters - back off and give them a chance before writing them off - please?!

Its OK Denny - you may be right but we will have to wait and make our minds up as the season progresses. Hopefully the equaliser has made your worries dissipate a bit! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Yes Mike I'm very impressed with him, he went very close from a Chaplin cross just now.

John-Jules with a driving run inside. Clips a pass to Edwards. He clips the ball back to the edge of the box under pressure. Aluko's well struck volley is blocked behind.

Morsy's shot from outside the box is too hot to handle for Bialkowski. Pushed over by the former Town keeper. Blues fans behind that goal urging their team to push for a winner.

Town go close again! Aluko's inswinging corner from the right is met at a crowded near post by John-Jules. Bialkowski scrambles to his left to claw the ball away.ย 

1-1 (86)

All over them....
CROSSBAR!!!!!

Sone Aluko inches away from scoring a screamer!

Played the ball into the feet of John-Jules, raced onto the lay-off and absolutely spanked the ball from 25-yards out.ย 

Bialkowski beaten all ends up... but the ball comes down of the underside of the bar and wedges under the Polish keeper's legs.

Full time, very good performance, don't think anyone will find that lethargic or disappointing.

That really made me smile.... I haven't thought about Kenny Everett in a long time...

Great to see Aluko come on and run amok... Good impact player and shows we a bit of depth in the squad...
