Barrow’s bench made a big impact. Always rated Bustin, he causes us problems whenever we play them.
When the commentators said about Donny being massive all over the pitch I nearly fell of the sofa. Barrow have to be one of the biggest most powerful teams in the league!
They’ve to a certain extent followed the Toronto blue print, build a championship competitive team to get out of league 1 and build on that. The Walne brothers have loads of SL experience. To think they’ve got Milioudi, Gary Wheeler and Tee Ritson to come back in, they have strike in abundance.

I agree Wilf. Much the better side but far too many individually poor performances. I'm allowed to say that yeah?

Of course, if people wish to criticise your honesty that's their choice.

I didn't see anyone have a particularly poor game. I thought our players gave their all. A few players made mistakes but we were basically worn down by a good side.

I suspect Tom Halliday thought the ref was going to blow for a knock-on when he dropped the ball, not realising there was an imminent threat. I'm sure he won't do it again.

I'd prefer say to him, "Chin up mate, it's happened, put it behind you, just make sure you stay focussed in future," rather than drop him.

Really disappointed with the second half yesterday but a week off now and then hopefully back to form against the Skolars on the 16th.

Barrow were far the better side and showed us how far off the pace in the race for top spot we are.

Even after losing Dallimore they dominated in every aspect of the game , we lacked direction and other than Douglas lacked aggression in the collision.

Our creativity in the halves was shocking in the second half and showed no direction what so ever.

Some of our plays were poor, but others were down right dumb .................. Matty kicking on the first tackle , Tom knocking on then standing like a cabbage while the Barrow winger picked up the loose ball and made meters, Johnson throwing the ball for an intercept on our 5m line and Tom driven back over the line for a drop out.
I know wingers try to ease the work on the forwards by carry out of line defence but on three instances this year Tom has been dominated and driven back over the line, giving away a drop out.
No disrespect to the kid but he doesn't have the size of Sam to ride the collision and land on his front for a quick ptb.

Peltier looked unfit and made very little impact when introduced to the action.

I think people calling for others to be given a go are a little naive , we don't know the situation with players injuries or the impact of Covid on the squad. I would imagine if Watson Boas was fit he would 100% make our game day 17.

Overall however I'm happy sitting third in the table halfway through the season ,but feel we need a few more quality players to help us push for the play offs after yesterdays display.

I didn't expect us to win but I would have been happy with a good performance , we looked a jaded side and the weeks break may do us good and give us time to maybe get a few players in and a win at London is now a must.

Can't argue with that assessment KLD.

Barrow coach on record saying we are a big side but we lacked intensity..

Well, I would like to say that the Dons are my favourite team ever and I will love them till I die...

Oh yes, and if it fails to materialise the season it won't happen. Can't see Barrow dropping anymore points on that performance and they will only get better with injured players back to the squad.

We couldn't get going and that is all the credit to the opposition.


Hush my mouth :oops: They lost 3 players to injury in the first half at Keighley and are currently losing 40-6 after 78 mins. If anyone called that you are are a better man than me Gunga Din. 8)
