    Need to get motoring in the second half here. Ball into feet and Eddie running at the defence. I would get Christie on.

    Tam or Christie for Griff please, push Eddy further forward and have either of those sitting behind.

    Somebody said JF has played at LB, personally I'd switch him and Forrest on left.

    Were playing in Scotland, so yes Mo can play out left. If we need 6 or 7 Defenders against teams here then I'm a tad worried.

    Even Griff is back when defending corners and free kicks, why?

    Been like a game you'd have played on the school playground in gale force winds running about after a bottle top.

    Most tactics out the window when the sheep are hoofing long balls everytime then crunching players to the deck when we reach the halfway line.

    Hopefully use the wind to our advantage here, few long range efforts would do nicley!!

    Disappointing the way we have allowed them in , this is exactly how the huns will play against us so we need show we can get the upper hand and stop them taking command, cham started well but has gave the ball away a few times , must be difficult wae the wind , griff needs to get a little closer to eddy and stop moaning .

    stat during that half was that we haven’t lost this season when we’ve scored first.

    so strong likelihood of a win.

    would quite like to see rogic for a bit of composure in the middle, or Christie or Frimpong for a bit of energy to up tempo

    Wind makes all the difference. Totally different second half coming up...

    Think the wind going for us will be beneficial. They played exactly how the underdog should play in this condition. Get the ball into the box as much as possible. Livi will hopefully do the same at 3pm.

    Taylor going off is annoying. We could've made a more aggressive change at half time. Ash Taylor looks like he may get sent off, but so does Griff. I hope Lennon rollicks him for that stupid booking.

    Was always gonna be a tough, turgid game up there against the weather and their clugger team.

    Keep it as is, would maybe get Bayo on for Griff after 15mins.

    As I said before and expected this wind is a leveller. But we have been dire that first half, from Fosters kick outs, little * out left putting the smallest player Taylor under pressure until he went off, to our midfield being run over at times . The passing from us has been questionable at times, maybe down to the wind. Apart from the goal we have created next to * all. Their goal was a gift, shocking defending all round. Hayes should have been closing down to stop the cross coming in , instead he chose to back off. Lenny needs a wee word with Eddy just to play to the conditions, trying too many flicks at times. The Sheep are looking for free kicks at every opportunity and Dallas is obliging with them as they fall to the ground as soon as we go near them. We need to up it, cant afford to drop anything and give the Huns a little bit of hope.

    We started well enough, but we’ve been poor for the last twenty minutes or so. Hopefully a word at half time, and a bit of tweaking to our setup, and we’ll be back to our best in the second half,

    Similar to the Huns game. We are playing short all the time and they are closing the space well. They are hitting it long at every opportunity and the first 45 has been played in our half.

    We really need to start getting ball up the pitch quicker especially with 2 up front and get the midfielders up in support.

    Wow the replay of their goal

    No communication whatsoever at the back. Nobody knows who is marking who.
