Ross is an OK keeper at this level, but it's very odd that Legg isn't getting a look in. Given our league position, was bringing in a backup keeper really an urgency after a full month of the transfer window being open and no activity?

We've been doing this all season, we need to stop these poor decisions and get some basic defending sorted out!

Saturday will be a toughie that's for sure! Accrington will punish us if we defend like that.


The last goal was conceded as we pushed everyone upfield in hope of an equaliser, and then got caught on the counter attack. I'm more concerned at our lack of finishing which is quite abysmal. We could and should of scored at least two last night.

Agree. Why have we signed a keeper and defender who haven't been deemed good enough to start a game. We quite obviously need a commanding midfielder to organise the team and connect our defence to attack but are wasting money on players who warm the bench at best. It's so frustrating to travel all that way and watch drivel.

I only saw it once last night but that was never a penalty!

I know we were poor in the 1st half (so were they) but we dominated the 2nd half but unfortunately with nothing up front you won't win (or draw) many games. I can't believe I keep going on about it but Akinde really needs to step up & get stuck in, he should be a leader on the pitch with his ability & dominating games. I know his service isn't great (and this clearly frustrates him).

Surely far better than go all out for the equaliser than stoutly defend a 1-0 defeat.
Once I heard Zoko was coming on, I guessed that if we didn't score then he would.

Can't argue with that. Just concerned that we look so lackluster in attack and the future of scoring with the current squad (see previous thread comments).

We have been poor going forward of late, it's a while since we scored twice in a game. I didn't go to the game (tip of the hat to those that did), however, the highlights suggest to me that we shaded it on chances with both keepers making good saves, and lost to a very dodgy early penalty that changed the game, and an injury time break away goal when going for the draw, away to a team in decent form. I did go on Saturday, and that performance twinned with the above suggest we are going in the right direction under GW. He seem to be picking around 9 of the players who should be starting as opposed to McGhee who picked maybe 6 at best.

I'd say that's a pretty fair summary BeeBoi1980. My mate from Yeovil who was at the game with me - and pretty neutral - thought we were very unlucky not to get at least a point. We were ahead on chances created - but unfortunately it's goals scored that count

Things like that happen in football, especially away from home, if we go down it won't be because of the Yeovil game that's for sure.

Swings and roundabouts. From listening to the commentary and watching the highlights we didn't deserve to lose. But then last season, Yeovil didn't deserve to lose but we stole the 3 points with our only shot on target.
