That was by some distance our most complete league performance in quite some time, and the complete polar opposite to the five-a-side nonsense that was served up on Wednesday evening against Wembley.
We were compact and organised out of possession, slick and creative in possession and should probably have been rather more comfortable than we were.
A couple of words for three players who have struggled for game time this season. Muir, McCall and Cole were outstanding, everyone else was very good. Great to see Murphs strike again from open play, he's found the going tough at times over the last 12 months but has shown a lot of determination. Thought he was good in midweek and very good today.
Also, Keagan Cole. Outstanding performance and quite brilliant goal. The kid is only 17, has waited patiently for his chance and looks like he is planning to take it. The attitude he's shown in being prepared to bide his time is as impressive, if not more so, than the absolute bucket loads of ability he has.
As I've said before (and hopefully will again in the blog!), the key now is to maintain that standard on Tuesday and beyond.
