Twice.

More than once.

Sawyers rarely goes in the box though, he needs to get in there , and Lalkovic is always hugging the opposite touchline.

Anyone see O'Donnell celebration to the goal?

Raw emotion that, can't doubt that the entire teams heart is in it.

The fact that the likes of Mantom and Purkiss all jumped up in the air with glee at the final whistle shows the difference between us and a lot of sides. A fair few of that Shrews team weren't arsed, but not one of our players didn't put a shift in.

Sexual.

These days we even have enough for a little squad rotation. Dreamland :lol:

When does a great ball across the box that no-one gets on the end of get classed as a poor piece of judgement. I'm not saying we should suddenly stop getting balls into the box, but we all know that if Westcarr's the one delivering that teasing ball, there's a fair chance no-one will be there to get on the end of it.

That's my main issue with the way we play. We wouldn't be crying out for a striker if our wide players and Sawyers made clever runs into the box at the right times.

Made me laugh when we scored seeing loads of our fans rush in from the bars still clutching their beer bottles !! The stewards were having a fit . Top work !! :lol:
On the point about a striker it is frustrating to see balls played across the face of goal with nobody running in. We seemed to have someone on near post or far post but no "sniffer " in the middle. Really like this team we have just don't see any harm in bringing in a player who has an eye for goal and even a bit selfish like all good strikers should be.
Good win though

How was it a peach of a ball if no one was there? Shouldn't he have looked before crossing .
