I thought the 90 minutes was generally a vast improvement on Saturday's fare, however, that fragility remains. Both goals were poor ones to concede, and after Kingstonian levelled at 2-2, we looked panic stricken in possession and swamped in midfield. The less said about the general quality of the penalties the better too. Credit to Joe Wright for a quite brilliant save from Kingstonian's fourth, alas it wasn't quite enough.
On the positive side though, some of the football in the first half was excellent. Crisp, incisive passing with conviction, Murphy and Bettache buzzing around with purpose and the two wide players linking up well with Kezie.
Ben Frempah did put in a good performance at centre half - two or three very big interventions in the second period. As for Charlie Kuehn, I am not sure he'll ever push a fit and on form Seeby, Flegg or Sprague for a regular spot, but what I liked about him last night was that he kept things nice and simple. Win the ball and pass it. Can't ask for more than that really. Another big plus was getting Kezie back amongst the goals. Two good, purposeful finishes - his best performance of the season by some distance. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Morgs has now served his suspension.
