I was pleased that we nicked a point in the last minute,but it’s disappointing that we lead,then went 1-2 down quite quickly in the second half.We have two tough games this week,so we will have to perform to get points.Crewe will have a lot of the ball,and will pose plenty of threat,and Sunderland are much improved with Johnson in charge.
