Put huge pressure on ourselves after a poor Easter weekend yet somehow we are still level on points with 3rd. (Hopefully Southend do us a favour tonight)

Still plenty of points to play for but I feel that this is a must win game, we need to get back on track.

4-0

I agree it's a must win and Harrogate are on a bad run so we really should be winning this.

I would bring Dapo back into the team and drop Delfouneso, he doesn't contribute enough for me. Push Lee back to play with Williams as playing him as the no10  didn't work either. If Sarcevic is back training then he needs to play as we have missed him massively.

Agree with Pig. If Sarc isn’t fit I wouldn’t be surprised to Maddison start at number 10, thought he looked better against Newport.

Agreed, Lee wasn't the right fit on Monday. I'd certainly throw madman in against Harrogate, as, let's face it, he's running out of time to make the difference we need.
And he needs to be the difference, for our sake and his own, because, fail again with us and he might as well spend the rest of his football career sat on a farm gate chewing a straw.

Can anyone remind me of the details of a game at Burnden Park several years ago when our goalkeeper put the ball down on the edge of the six-yard box to take a goal-kick because he had shepherded an opposition shot out of play behind our goal.
However, having retreated a few yards to take his run-up, he turned back round only to find that the ref had waved play-on and an opponent had run up and tapped the ball home.

I can't remember who was in goal, who the ref was or who the "scorer" was. I seem to remember it was an evening game.....but might be wrong....
Any help with the details would be much appreciated....

Harrogate will probably take a lesson out of Colchester's book and allow us possession in the knowledge that we're unlikely to score if they keep their shape. It all depends on whether or not we can get to the next level because at the moment we're fairly solid but impotent up front. Sarcevic is creative enough to change that if he's back - we've certainly missed him.

0-0.

I just don't see where the goals are coming from.

I would definitely change the system and play Miller & Doyle up top together.

Evans stuck with a system that wasn't working for us for too long at the start of the season, I hope he doesn't repeat his mistake.

I agree with all the positive comments about Sarcevic. He could well be the difference between us being promoted or not.

Gilks, Santos and Baptiste have been great, but too many of our squad have been very inconsistent.  They have a good spell then go missing for the rest of the game and the endless back and sideways passing does my head in.

Sarcevic consistently looks to creating a goal opportunity for himself or another player.  He also has a real strength and mental determination  that many of the others don't possess.

One point from two games.

Three points needed if we are going to stand a chance of getting that third place back.

Had a dream (rare for me) last night that we win 3-0 today. The Cult were also playing live on the pitch to an empty stadium so don’t be changing your predictions.

Good result after going behind.  Other teams doing us favours too.  Tranmere lost, Cambridge Lost, Forest Green lost, Morecambe Lost, but Cheltenham won.

Another uninspiring performance. Absolutely awful first half, I can't understand why Evans keeps giving Maddison game time, he has done absolutely nothing to justify it. We were MUCH better when Thomason replaced him after half-time and filled in the massive midfield hole.

Even so, too many of this team are out of form and not producing.

I still think play-offs is more likely than automatic promotion, even with most of the other teams doing their best to keep us in the top 3.

Fooking Lucky to get three point IMO

I'll take it because we deserve some luck but we can't continue to play this poorly going forward.

Lee had a poor game and Maddison doesn't seem to be working out or so it seems.

There is something still too slow in midfield for my liking.

I'd probably play Thomason instead of lee and one of the other attackers instead of Maddison for the next game.

Onwards Lads.

Yes, they drew 0-0 against Scunthorpe United.

I think you're thinking about the Rotherham game. Jim McDonagh was in goal for them, and it was he that put the ball down for a GK, and the ref waved play on. Garry Jones ran up and put the ball in the net

We won ugly but the important thing is we won. Even better was Tranmere drawing and that 2 point gap may just prove crucial now there's only 6 games left. Personally I agree with Nat that the play offs are more likely than automatic promotion unless we improve our play because right now we are too dependent on luck for comfort.

And for the second time today I agree with Nat. Maddison simply isn't worth a starting spot at the moment and he's going to cost us dearly if Evatt keeps playing him. Drop him pronto imo.

Totally agree. Yes we scraped the points despite giving them loads of chances to level but again it was unconvincing and we won’t get away with that when we play teams like Exeter.
I think Maddison has had enough chances now and we need sarcevic back ASAP.
Somehow we have to pass and move better than we have been doing but there were a few bright spots to build on.
I’m wondering if some of the players are starting to believe their own hype because yesterday they seem to have forgotten that they have to earn the right to play the fancy stuff by winning the midfield battle and stringing moves together to bypass the press - we only got to grips with that when the subs came on and changed the momentum.
Even then we lived dangerously.
I only hope the work ethic improves next time out and that Evatt’s selection is less frivolous. Tough games coming up.

I couldn't help but think that Dapo's looked tired, and its starting to show in his play. Rarely pushed forward, and when he did his passes often went astray. We know he was brilliant a few games ago, but not now it seems, at least to me. I also think the charge up the table has taken more out of the team than we realise. Two players who still have life in them are George, 'The Centurion' Thomason, and Elbouzedi, and should get lots more play than they are.
Never been a fan of Madison, although was prepared to give him a chance. He really is rubbish. He runs away from the play, doesn't tackle, and falls over when someone runs past him. Roams all over the pitch, so you never know where he is. Good point(s)? - he now has boots of the same colour. I hope we don't see him on the pitch again. One of the commentators said that he's trying to play 'Champagne' football, I think he's right, but flashy finishes have to be supported by hard work and skill.
