Goalie far not good enough cost us 2 points today had about 2 minutes to come out and collect of Wharton who was outstanding today but instead told Wharton to put the ball out for a corner that lost us the game
Need to look in the loan market for a goalkeeper ASAP
Decent enough performance from Rovers,in what was a relatively uneventful game.We are being made to pay for not finishing teams off,although general shape and build up play from us is good.Graham was immense-one of his tackles sounded like a bomb going off when both players collided. Wharton had a sound game also.Have to agree that keeper does not inspire any confidence in his defence and seems unable to exude any authority within his own penalty area.
2 points lost due to lack of a finisher up front and once again being unable to defend set pieces. Goodfellow is a dud but then what do you expect from someone from Berwick. Also substitutions in the second half weakened our attack threat and a poor queen's took advantage. Some thought that there was a danger of losing Harper to a bigger club mid season. Don't see it. Mediocre and a poor tactician. God help us next week. Oh and the referee was ridiculous as usual. 5 bookings to queen's 1 makes us sound like a bunch of hackers. Typical Hampden performance where refs don't want to upset the blazers. Moron.
I think we were lucky to go away with anything today. We lack killer instinct to finish games off. Wharton immense as was Graham. Smart had a few easy chances but couldn't convert. Disappointing given that he wanted to show the fans who binned him what they were missing. Still, great point and a massive challenge next week v an ever improving Edinburgh City.
QP are rotten which makes an away point quite depressing. They were there for the taking and despite a couple of blown opportunities we let them have it quite easy. Smart again through one on one and showed no real conviction to score. One of his poorer days. Without turning it into a witch hunt, I'd punt the keeper today. Even at 1-0, I'm thinking we need to get rid ASAP. Looks an absolute bomb scare.
Quite an entertaining if somewhat average game. Keeper and both full backs are an accident waiting to happen. Keeper in particular.
Wharton was my MOTM. Doing what he does best in keeping it simple. Played a key role in the goal with a great shift of feet before putting over the cross. Will was great too. Gary Philips also worth a mention. Good to see him back in the side and he made us tick although he faded a bit towards the end.
Laughing at the QP goalie coming up for the corner at the end. Wasn't quite laughing as much when he got a clean header away which Goodfellow did well to turn over for the corner that led to the goal. Fairly straightforward ball into the box as well. We haven't been able to defend those consistently well in the six years I've been following the Rovers - fact!
Agree re the referee. Bookings today were outrageous.
On the evidence so far there isn't much between any of the sides in this league outside Cove and Edinburgh by the looks of it.
