    Looking more and more unlikely that we will get promotion this season.

    Fair result! They’re second in the league and they were no better than us. Honeyman runs a lot and is better than anything we have in there... but his passing is still awful as it was with us

    Desperate fir a striker!!

    Seen absolutely nothing tonight that suggests we will be in the playoffs let alone an automatic place at the end of the season. Not enough quality in the final third. Defence doesn’t look confident. We play with no pace, set pieces always looping or hitting the first man. Basically not good enough and this window is vitally important, lets see what we do!

    A team full of plodders. No one with the spark to win it for us. Let’s hope the manager can bring in a couple of players that are much better than what we have.

    A load of ****e again garbage, start again next season. no plan b hoof the ball down the pitch, or tack the ball out side the area instead of inside, another season wasted due to draws.

    No chance with the 3 ****ers we have upfront. If LJ doesn’t give Curry a go even just for his pace I’ll have doubts about his ability to get us promoted.

    Automatic promotion looks beyond us but with one or two shrewd signings we can be favourites in the playoffs. I say it every transfer window but a strong, fast goalscorer and we would be flying

    Me too, he drives into space, just wish some of the older players would support him better

    If we don’t let’s hope we are close and then totaly smash it next season like we did with Reidy. Although we might still make the play offs ok.

    No change, slow, ponderous on the ball, no creativity. Players aren’t good enough, manager is positive and it’s refreshing but we need a drastic improvement in results.
    For me we aren’t good enough and unless we sign a lot of quality it’s time to prepare for next season.

    If we had a decent striker and a decent midfielder in the Don Hutchinson type mould we would fly up the league. Both fullbacks are poor too but suppose our 1st choices are missing at the moment.

    I'm happy with that.
    I think Hull are the best team in this league.
    Bar us.
    Overall I think we are better, they are better in the final third for quality but with Lee Johnson coming in and pushing attacking football I'm hopeful for improvement.
    A good performance in my opinion and I think we'll get better.

    We are just too pedestrian - and no forwards to hold the ball at all. It just bounces straight back.
