Well, I did feel that anyone who suggested Notts might score (including me) was a million miles away. They looked better when Harrad was on as he gave them a target man to aim for and he doesn't blow away in a breeze but this was two hustling teams, neither of whom, quite frankly, deserved to win. Again Carroll saved us at the end with a great stop but like so much in this match, it shouldn't have happened. We didn't do the basics right really. No decent passes, no knowing where people are, no vision, no running into space. Lots of work for this team to do. Plus points - some great tackles from Hollis, the defence coped with some tough physical challenges and Spence seems to be standing up again so maybe not too long there to wait. Lots of heart and effort also so hopefully that will see us through.|
