I'd like to think so but don't think it will.Maybe unfair criticism but, from watching the highlights you could think that we had never defended set pieces before. How many times do we concede to those low, powerful shots from 20 - 30 yards? There must be someone on the pitch with responsibility to identify situations and spot the potential dangers?
Oh well, we got a point.
FA cup time then. Chance to bring some cash into the club. And, cheap tickets to watch, let's hope that encourages a good crowd.
I agree about the hanging on for 10 minutes. Thing is we just about got our act back together for the last half an hour and didn't concede another which makes talk of capitulation from some of our supporters nonsense. I may be over kind in putting this down to a mad six minutes and focusing more on what our defence has achieve in the rest of the time played during these last six games. (Me being optimistic - now there's a surprise).Always good to read a measured account of the game Paul.
I must admit that when our third went in I thought we were likely to get more.
When they had that free kick my reaction was don't let them get one as a goal could change the game.
Scunthorpe became more and more long ball as the game wore on and seemed to have more height than us. You are right that they deserve credit for not dropping their heads. Had we simply hung on for 10 minutes though they wouldn't have found that immediate impetus.
Brannagan was apparently at fault for giving away both free kicks. Stupidity really.
