Views from The Imposter following last night’s 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United in the Checkatrade Trophy: “First half felt a bit flat but second really came alive and we looked much better when Akinde and Andrade came on. I thought Bruno was simply brilliant. What a player that lad is. And kudos to Rheady who lasted the whole match and had a stormer. Some fabulous touches and headers and linked up really well with big John. Gives Danny a poser for Saturday. Green was disappointing for me. Mensah was very poor and barely looked interested. He couldn’t get off quick enough when his number went up.”
More views from the Match Thread:
Merthyr: “Well, we certainly deserved something from the game as it was a bit like the first half against Tranmere – we did everything but score.
Best defender in the second half was Wharton. It’s the best I’ve seen Chapman play – although that hasn’t been very often. Rhead was more effective second half. Last thought – Mensah has been on the bench for recent games, but I think judging by tonight Gordon should take his place as an attacking option.”
johnoble: “Strange how we see games and players so differently.
Gordon was pretty pathetic at defending and hardly passed to a Lincoln player the entire first half. Very good attacking wise in the 2nd half but is obvious why DC would play Wilson ahead of him if Eardley is ever injured. Green and Mensah looked miles away from replacing Akinde and Andrade in a first choice team and Rhead had far away his best half hour of the season after the hour mark. Andrade could easily be MoM for a simply brilliant 20-minute game-changing cameo performance. Wharton’s first 15 minutes were a nightmare but steadied and improved.
Entertaining enjoyable game but played in an atmosphere similar to a pre-season friendly and Humphries for Scunny looked a proper player.
Slocombe had his best game yet for us.”
