Great result today folks, and good luck for the last game of  the season. I really thought Stoke would prove more difficult for you today, their recent form putting them in the top six, so totally wro

Nice touch from Wilder   

He may be a kid, but he still needs to learn the difference between right and wrong, and that includes not running onto the pitch in the middle of football matches he is watching.  We can't be certain

Made them look quite ordinary for most this half. They had a massive chance to get in front from Brown, God knows how he managed to mess that one up as badly as he did. But couple of nice bits of fortune from making good decisions has us in front and from here, it's ours to go on and take it to them. Getting a few extra goals today would set the stage for the final day a bit better. Been a decent watch this.

Interesting first half.

Very scrappy opening 20 minutes. Neither side really looked like getting a grip on the game.

Still haven't seen a replay of Crooks' goal, but after Howson's free kick went in off Baker, we finally seemed to get a confidence boost and mostly looked pretty comfortable.

Still lacking the intelligence / quality to make the most of our dominance. Frustrating that we still get caught offside as often as we do and regularly fail to pick passes, but overall more than happy with how things have gone so far.

Best we've played in ages. Threat from the left, good deliveries from set pieces, and the fast passing  around their channels is back.

I do wonder if we have a ready-made solution to our LWB problem in Tav? Sometimes its about getting your best players onto the pitch - and this achieved that. Seems insane to bench McGree or Crooks.

Unfortunately destiny is not in our hands but we can’t afford chances lCrooks had go unrewarded. Support was slow. 
Reminiscing but if only we had not lost form when it mattered. Shucks..

It's also nice to see us play well without having to go through Jones. Lad is struggling a bit with his back apparently? So we're not seeing him race the length of the pitch as much today.

What a strange half, we couldn’t get close to the ball for 20 minutes and then Crooks scores and we wake up. The second gave us real confidence and we dominated them after that. A mention for Daniels who has brought so much more confidence into our defence, Mcgree also looks a very good signing

Think Crooks has to play that in and leave it for Sporar to sort his body out. They recovered and killed the chance.

I think Sporar could have held his run.

I'm not sold on Tav's defensive abilities but he certainly carries a good attacking threat. Other than that can't really argue with you.

Seems vital that we score first, to get our confidence going.

Totally agree about Daniels and McGree. 👍
