Views from Impish following tonight’s 1-1 draw at home against Scunthorpe United, which The Imps won 4-2 on penalties: “For me, it shows that Bradley is not at the required standard, Grant bossed the game when he came on and with him and Jones, it was much better in the second half when they were introduced. Scunny were like an old Cowley side, winding the clock down for all the latter 51 minutes. We probably should have nicked a winner with several decent opportunities late on as there was only going to be one winner.
I am still concerned about the terrible defending for both conceded goals so far, virtual carbon copies so hopefully Michael Appleton will look at what is happening. We will need to be far more switched on against Oxford, my favourites for the title this season.
Not sure about needing to be 31% better at defending, at least 50%!”
More views from the Match Thread:
Norfolk Imp: “George Grant changed the game, an absolute baller in his free role, impressed with Anderson too who deserved his goal as nobody else looked like scoring to be honest.
Fitness levels looked good, roll on Saturday.”
Riiiiik: “Nowhere near our first likely team. Good pressure and totally in control by the end. Just lacking the finish to win in normal time but even then, well-taken penalties still did enough to win it.”
Chesterimp: “Good workout is a disappointing result, should have won on that strong second half. Fitness conditioning clearly been strong in preseason and outlasted the opposition again.
Grant made the difference and if Bridcutt not ready for Saturday, Jorge needs to be in that CM role, otherwise playing free behind a front 2? Jones also showed his experience with some well-timed runs to support the front 3 and the pair of them changed the effectiveness of the midfield.”
Scotimp: “Our fitness is excellent, it looks like we got our pre-season right.
Grant is excellent in that free role, rather than being stuck on the left-wing.
Starting to see what MA sees in Elbouzedi.”
Croozey: “Harry Anderson has always been able to find the net for us. He does contribute a decent haul for a midfielder. He’s grown as a player in line with the club’s progress. Still very useful.”
