No doubt about it, that's the toughest game I've seen us play this season so far. (Missed Met Police, Enfield Town and Kingstonian).

After going ahead and looking the better side for the first 15 minutes or so, we were very much second best from the moment we conceded the equaliser. It was a soft goal to concede, but credit to Mark Knee, the P&T full back for getting forward to nod the ball home. Five minutes later we were 2-1 down, a decent strike, but again, we were slow to close the ball down on the edge of the box. The remainder of the half saw P&T in complete control. Josh Jones, Lloyd Cotton and Jamie Brotherton in particular were outstanding. However, led by Elliott Brathwaite, we dug in and went in just a goal down at the break.

Afterwards, a different game entirely. Playing higher up the pitch and crucially pressing the ball a bit higher, we gradually took control. Leon unlucky not to score with an effort that hit the bar shortly before Seeby netted a superb goal both in execution and build-up. Both sides had chances to win the game, but when Leon's effort was parried into big Dave's path, there was only one outcome.

Fabulous entertainment and a big three points. I think as time goes on this season, P&T will become ever more difficult to take points from. This result should not be underestimated.
