I swear if I never move from this spot I said to a friend of mine when were looking at the half time scores that I hope Evans tells these guys that P'Boro. are going to throw the kitchen sink at them when they come out in the second half,so I hope he puts 7 in the box for the first 20 minutes , because if they score they will score again,guess Evans didn't hear me.

A game of two halves.We contained Peterborough in the first half,and lead through an Akinde penalty.They upped it in the second half,and changed their system.Giving away an early second half goal gave them confidence,and they went onto win the game comfortably.Maybe if we kept it tight for 15 minutes in the second half we may have took something.

The great justification for us hiring the obnoxious Steve Evans was that ''he gets results".

Since losses are indeed results I guess his supporters will be shiny, happy people.
