    At least Maguire has had a go. We've brought the other two back too early.

    Missing Jones here, might need diamond on for Gooch and Neil for Leadbitter.

    No but Wyke missed the ball, Maguire dragged a shot wide, Maguire pass to mcgeady in 4 acres of space just in the wrong place! We’ve had better chances but not hit the target

    That was really poor mind. Sitting deep and not playing our game in their half. They’re getting in decent positions and have a threat. I’d be considering changing something to get mcgeady and maguire closer to wyke

    Flanagan injured doesn't weaken us imo.

    Bit deflating. I can only hope we're trying to tire them out and the low energy performance is intentional.

    Most of the time we're significantly better in the second half, fingers crossed.

    I'm sure LJ tells them not to press in the first half to save the fitness levels. Fully expect us to press much higher 2nd. Hopefully Gooch and Maguire off for Diamond and Kimpioka. Either during half time or soon after.

    Might as well take Gooch off and put Neil on to make a 3 man midfield. They've got an extra man in there and leadbitter is getting caught out too much.

    Connor for Flanners is a good start and actually strengthens us, but more changes are required if we are to win this imo.

    Been poor in this half, we are being bullied a bit, three blood injuries and 1 early sub! Come on Lads...... show us what you got!! hope we come out with a bit more fight and flair in the second half.
