Important win. Efficient win. We defended quite well. Not much more to say.
At least we turned up for 15 minutes of the first half, unlike the previous two home games. After that we let them have most of the ball. Second half was a slight improvement. Early goals in each half very helpful.
Three central defenders with wing-backs worked quite well, Seaman had a decent debut, some good crosses, although he left his man a bit.
Partington looked better in the middle of a back three, IMO.
Midfield worked hard as usual but again we missed a Yeates figure as the back two looked a bit isolated. Too early to say much about Barnes but he did try and beat his man when he got the ball.
Not sure why they were unhappy about the red card, Rendell was hardly bending down as he went to head the ball and he got the boot full in the head. Another yellow card for Strevs! Naughty boy.
