One Reply to “Coady double keeps play-off hopes alive”

  • A bit sluggish in the first half, dominated totally in the second. Murphy had their defence terrified, his direct running and control always threatened to get behind their defence. He took on the THREE markers and crossed from the by-line for Coady’s second goal, it was so accurate, I could have put it in. Great travelling support, who witnessed the most blatant, nailed on, rock solid penalty of the season not given, late in the game. That would have given the score line a better balance. Howard made one brilliant save, Collo and Harry superb, Doyle outstanding again. For me Porter works better up front than Baxter. Freeman continues to improve, another good loan signing, and there was even the opportunity to bring on the two lads for debuts at the end. It seems that the rotation policy works whatever combination NC puts out on the field. Looking forward to next season already.
