He received an average rating of 6.382 following the 4-3 defeat away at Plymouth Argyle in February. Some of the comments can be found below:

sedgleyimp: “I actually thought he did pretty well playing plenty of advantages.

Did seem to like talking to players but making it obvious that was exactly what he was doing.

Got our first penalty spot on (not very difficult), but thought the second was a little soft.

An above par 7/10.”

Woodis: “5. Fornah should have had two yellows. Lewis had too late ones on Poole yet didn’t get booked. A couple of naughty late ones in the second half which also should have had yellows. The players quickly worked out what they could away with, which was a lot. In no way to blame for our loss but I don’t know think he had a good game”

berksimps: “Completely bottled the potential Plymouth sending off, indirectly that may have got us the second slightly soft penalty. Otherwise, a reasonable game that he will have enjoyed.

6.5.”
