Overall, much better yesterday.

First half was very good, there was a structure to the side and I thought the new lad, Manesio, made a difference. Disciplined, broke things up and passed the ball well. That gave Bayley freedom which he relished and put in his best 45 minutes by quite some distance whilst Luke just patrolled in front of the back four. Had Shaq scored a 3rd just before the break, I do think that would have taken the wind totally out of Tiverton's sails.

The start of the second half was hugely disappointing. Although the first goal came from a throw-in that should clearly have gone to us and the second from what looked like a dubious free-kick, we didn't defend well enough after those decisions, which was a real shame. That said, I thought after getting pegged back to 2-2 we kept going which was heartening to see. Either side could have won it in the end and it was so important to get something on the board again.

Off the field I thought the club set the tone well for Dermot, it was fabulous to see his son and so many of his ex-team-mates making the effort to remember him. Lovely set of away fans too. Well done everyone.
