    He did well tonight with the pish service. Held the ball up well at times.

    We didn't get that many balls to him but he held up well when he did get service. Still looked less than fully sharp but glad to see him tonight.

    Ran the channels and held the ball up well. Just needs another couple games and he’ll be back scoring regularly again.

    Couldn’t have come at a better time for us.

    I'd rather start Afolabi than Griff. Eddy will start though..

    He's still nowhere near it for me but was ok in patches and will be better off with the game time tonight in the long run..

    Seen a few folk writing him off and saying we should punt him in the summer. Great opportunity for him to prove them wrong and start scoring again.

    Good shift in a tough game with very few quality balls to him

    But he showed he still has plenty to offer

    That just about sums his performance up. Will have done him world of good to get that game time under his belt. Hopefully, see some more action on Sunday

    I really want to see Christie just behind Griffiths man, centrebacks won’t have a * second. Far different variation of threat than Eddy.

    I thought he did ok last night and deserves to start on Sunday with Eddie on the bench just in case .

    Yeah, I would start him again tomorrow. Yesterday was always going to be a tough shift for him with a team thrown together. 90 mins in his legs though, expect him to do better with most our big hitters back in the side. Can always put Edouard on later if need a goal

    He's had a difficult 12 months. Spent most of his time in the Maternity Ward, but once he gets the night feeds out the road he should be back banging in the goals.

    I thought Leigh did well last night, making the runs and movement required to play the role.
    He's a very dangerous player and I'm really pleased he got a full game under his belt last night.
    Really do hope he's back in the fold for the reminder.

    Looked pretty sharp to me! His touch was back and looked a lot fitter. A couple of goals for the confidence and we could have a vital player back!

    Would love to see him grab a goal against Hibs. He really tried hard against Cluj, at both ends of the field. A little bit of decent service, and who knows. Would love to see him get back to his best for us, for him to get his confidence back and enjoy his vital contribution to the ten in a row.

    I would like to see him get some game time today, as he looked sharp mid week, maybe 55 min and then spring Eddy just as they start to tire and we have sussed how to get at them.

    Didn’t really have much of a chance to impact the game today, but he looks fit and well. Expect to see him banging in a few goals for us soon.
