Any joy we had came when we kept the ball on the floor. Did it a few times in the first half but keates had seen enough by half time and second half we hoofed relentlessly. Awful to watch. Shite game with 2 shite teams

Despite his faults he is currently our top scorer.

We need quality in midfield. If Keates is making another loan signing this is the area he needs to improve most.

Hooper is better than Oswell but neither are target men. Hooper would be better playing off someone. Harris isn’t a natural striker but could be good on RW. Grant played well in the first-half but faded badly in the second — just like most others — and his late miss was a hanging offence.

I still think our main problem is a lack of ability in midfield. Rutherford brings energy but is limited. Redmond has quality but can’t last 90 minutes. Barton is essentially a third CB because our CB pairings aren’t good enough or quick enough on their own.

Horsfield had a very good first-half but again faded in the second. He is definitely better than BB.

Clearly that performance wasn’t good enough overall to suggest we are climbing out of the doldrums. If it wasn’t for Lainton we would have lost that. DK has much to do. My question to him would be: why did we stop playing football in the second-half and sit ever deeper? If it was because Chesterfield were so much better then we have serious issues because they were truly awful in the first-half.

In conclusion, 2 poor teams that will be struggling to avoid relegation unless they get their acts together. I care not whether Chesterfield slip into oblivion, but am getting worried we might, too, unless we sort things out pdq. Rochdale will have one eye on the Round 2 draw after watching that tame effort.

At the WST meeting the football club board spokesperson said the manager will have funds to improve the team. So watch that space - the pitch I mean.

2nd half they closed our players down a lot quicker leading to a lack of composure from players lacking in confidence, who just played hoof. They were quicker to the second ball and this just created more pressure. I hardly think this was a Keats game plan as some imply just poor decisions on the pitch. We rode our luck with a good strike hitting Lainton, who knew nothing about it then Jennings getting in the way of the second near the end of the game. Their keeper did well against grant made him self big. Harris is still learning but something you can’t teach is bravery. He continually backs out of challenges and gives up too easily. DK has a lot to do.

First half our fullbacks got forward. They put wide men into their midfield and that killed our wide play. Our coaching team still looking for plan b.

Why do do kick long ball after long ball to grant? Hooper won virtually every aerial challenge yet Lainton never aims at him.

Winning another round or 2 may make a difference to the playing budget. For those who stayed away last night, especially season ticket holders, please make every attempt to turn up for the next round. You’ll all want “your” seat for a glamorous 3rd round tie.

Grant should have scored, Harris bottled a 1 on1 out wide with Coddington , but otherwise 45 minutes of hold what we have. Welcome back Keates. I’ve missed my 2nd half insomnia cures. Dreadful. Our 1 hope is that Hooper gets match fit and plays more. Until he signs a pre contract elsewhere in January and gives up like our previous useful looking players.

I agree that our issues are in Midfield. Were Summerfield and Young 'Rested' I simply cannot believe that they are behind Akil Wright in the pecking order. As for Redmond I have the same view as you BUT when have we actually seen that Quality ? Is this a kings clothes scenario where we all somehow believe that he is talented but in reality he is just a lazy bugger ? I do think our style does not suit him and ,a bit like Harris, he is bewildered by the basics of Conference level football.
I also agree that Horsfield had a decent first half but compared to coco the clown I would.
The Grant 'Miss' was just a cocky scouser trying to showboat and we need to get over it. Dropping our leading scorer is nonsense but he does deserve a bollocking - if they had equalised and subjected us all to 30 more minutes they would have ended up playing in front of a Bulgarian stadium as I am not sure many could have tolerated more.
Cautiously optimistic at half time and deflated at full time (despite the win we could all see the cracks)

Glad you’re back posting. Being a WREXHAM fan continues to be a trial, but one we must face. Agree Harris must stop pulling out, if only because he will get hurt. Just hope it’s on TV because I will probably not be able to make the journey.

I was impressed by Horsfield. Hopefully he will improve further as he gains match fitness.

We need a midfield general and a target man. Get those 2 in pdq and DK might just rescue the season. If not, we are in for some nail-biting times!
