Battled for the ball and some superb clearances and tackling, give credit were credits due George Friend certainly put a shift in. Nice to see Brit looking like he wanted to be here put himself about, wrongly penalized a few times as well.

I’m sure Mark Venus got a win 4-0 v Doncaster if I remember correctly 

I'll change that to permanent manager, haha.

I'm so chuffed with that result and Warnock really is a bloody good manager/coach. We actually look like a half decent team now, long may it continue UTB!!!!!

We actually looked like a decent team today. You could see from the start that there was a plan. A few big performances too from players like Britt and Saville.

That's the best Dael Fry has looked in forever. I put it down to having George lead him through the game - who was also superb.

All round good performance. Exactly what I wanted to see from them. Shape, work effort and a bit drive going forward.

I thought we played okay at best, to be honest.

It's a miracle Stoke didn't score, and the defence still looks rickety.

But he's only had 4 days and the result is what matters.

I actually think Warnock can complete the job in a week beat Hull and QPR 50 points job done 

Hull's huge puts us to 47 gives us 5 points breathing room and if QPR lose in the meantime if we beat them I believe we get on level points with them. 3 wins out of 7 would historically get us safety but if Warnock gets a couple of draws or 1 extra win in there we'd be guaranteed it. Our squads in better shape than alot of the ones above and below us if Warnock beats Hull we're not safe but it's a massive marker for the rest of the run in.

I mean wow what a difference a week makes. Brace yourselves for some rare positivity from me but my goodness we actually looked alright today! Battled for tackles, survived by the skin of our teeth a few times (shh) but hey 2-0 win and a bit of confidence about us! 

Also special mention to Powell who completely lost his head and got sent off after 2 bookings within a minute. What on earth was he thinking. Stoke as a whole seemed poor today it must be said. 

Be interesting to see what Colin can do with us after a few more weeks!

Great win today. Good performances from Friend and Britt which was good to see. I thought Warnock managed the game very well with some smart subs at the right times. It’s definitely looking a lot rosier going on from here. UTB

The stats are strange, Accurate pass rate, lost 76% via 56%. possession lost 69% via 31% and we had 4 recalls.

I really hope Johnson extends his contract, he's decent.

Another strong performance from Saville. He’s becoming a consistent 7 or 8 out of 10 every game now. 
You don’t play international football if you aren’t a good footballer.

Also George looked better at CB. Spence could do with some coaching defensively, he’s found ball watching a few times I’ve noticed.
