Back 4 didn't concede a goal and the full-backs don't get forward, collectively no more than 6 each. midfield don't want to give away space in front of the back 4 and don't get forward or play in good crosses or killer passes in to feet for the forwards, collective 6. The forwards are chasing scraps like Jack Russells in a junkyard and for effort deserve more than 6 but when Benno didn't get any service he made his own chances or won a pen, so 6 each. Luke Young mentioned in despatches for a goal worth a win 4 leagues higher. Still, a wins a win, and small steps and all that. We do seem like a team that is playing with the brakes on.
Sums it up nicely, albeit 6 for everyone is a tadge generous.

I would give Rutherford and Thomas 4 at most.

Team-wise, we were slightly better than Aldershot, who tried to play football, which gave us slightly more space than we get off most teams that play very defensively.
UP THE TOWN! Those are my principles, and if you don't like them.... well, I have others. GROUCHO MARX
