Hirst instead of Ladapo? Why?
Crazy I just don't understand that, saying that we should still win.

There is an FGR win in the poll up there....., ^^^^^^ :shock: Wow. That really must be a proper disgruntled supporter.

I like the starting line up......, especially Clarke in there. Plenty crosses coming in for Hirst & Broadhead.

It's about time we moved up a bloody gear, got a run going and thumped somebody.

Think today could be the day (he says with everything crossed).

4 - 0 to the Blues.

Plenty of chances but not much to show for it. The next goal is crucial but we do make hard work of it. We definitely need to be more clinical with our finishing.

Another massive opportunity for Burns to double the score hit straight at the keeper. Don’t our guys look up when they shoot.

Clever set piece finished nicely by Broadhead to make it 2-0 just before half time, perfect timing. ⚽️

Burns first touch and crossing has been poor. Should be 4 or 5 up but a good half.

We got a two goal lead going into an interval. You can't really ask more other than being ahead of the opponents by bigger score but this seems a comfortable lead. Can't see them scoring twice to turn it around but no game is over until the finish. Reasonably confident of three points from this even with a second 45 to come.

Bolton and SWFC not winning also, ideally i'd take these results now but second halves have to be played out. Don't know why Ladapo didn't feature from the start but the team has a promising lead against an opposition many would expect to beat anyhow. Three points from this will be pivotal, just keep it going.

Because he had 75 minutes and a few chances v Bristol Rovers........, doesn't really matter anyway......., they're all misfiring. Thank god its only FGR today. 16 shots now , 8 on target ...., and rising. Need goals to take the pressure off.

Davis, Broadhead and Chaplin are linking up nicely, I’d like to see these start regularly maybe with Ladapo replacing Hirst.

It was these three’s link play that led to Chaplins second and Tosnz 3rd goal. ⚽️
