A great performance from the lads given the circumstances and schedule. At 2-0 we were flying but then let Spalding back into the game within a minute. If we could have consolidated at 2-0 I think we would have seen the game out, but that quick fire reply put heart back into Spalding and it seemed inevitable that they would get back to 2-2. Even then we had chances to win it, but couldn't find the final touch to see us home. By no means a disaster so on we go again.

Just one final mention for the ref - thought he was very poor .............

Ref was definitely poor, and my one thought on consolidation would have been : BRING DANNY ROBERTS ON !!!!
Thought the lads gave every thing and scored 2 cracking goals, but with Hare in goal the defence looks uncomfortable so I really do hope the mgt rethink that decision or it could cost us the title.

That result was a bit of a let off for Shaw £ane.Should have been two points ahead of them but for a one sided ref and lack of a decent keeper. If Spalding have that ref in the play offs, they should go all the way.

Why on earth would anyone rest their goalkeeper??? There has to be more to it than this surely. If Roberts was injured fair enough but it just doesn't make sense if he wasn't.

Gutted tonight....at 2-0 we were comfortable and in total control. It is difficult to criticise the management for their fantastic efforts this season but to leave the leagues best goalkeeper sat on the bench is puzzling to say the very least. Like somebody previously mentioned there must be more to it.

We have to trust our management team about Danny being on the bench there must be good reason behind what seems a strange decision. We could have won this game and we could have lost it too I'd have to praise our lads in the circumstances of all these games Prince picking up an injury on Tuesday was really unfortunate and Will Jones could have won it tonight but it just wouldn't go in he was absolutely gutted but we can still do this heads up lads and go again on Saturday COME ON THE ALBIOOOOON!!

Echo what others have said, why is the best keeper in the league sitting on the bench??? A keeper does not need to be rested! He was on the bench Tue which we thought was to be rested for tonight, was gobsmacked when he was on the bench again tonight. that decision has probably cost us the title!

why didn't Carl use the subs tonight?? some of the lads were knackered and we'd gone from 2- 0 up to 2-2 so why not bring the subs on??

The management have done a tremendous job this season but I'm struggling with their poor decisions lately

I am going to bed angry and frustrated

Roberts wasnt rested or injured We were told but "was not in favour" !!! Bonkers indeed ! A 9 out of 10 keeper most games great shot stopper, makes good decisions, great handling, confident, imposing and always looks assured as does the defence when He is in the nets, His understudy Hare meanwhile is just a shot stopper ( as long as its not too high ) I dont care what the reasons are but it really needs sorting out PDQ. If we are involved in the playoffs or for the SL game I for one and Id say 99% of the Witton crowd last night would want Roberts back in the nets-it was the biggest conversation by a mile last night.

I wouldn't worry. At least when you go to Shaw Lane you know you need to win as oppose to them thinking a draw will do. Only one winner when that happens.

It is still in your hands - win out and it`s all yours!!!

We could draw at Shaw Lane then beat Vics 10-0 and take the title!! Seriously, it was a strange decision to leave out Roberts but Hare did keep a clean sheet on Tuesday night. Managers make decisions, we just watch, going by the position we are in I would say our manager has got most decisions right! The ref was awful but asking semi-pros to play and win game after game with virtually no rest in between was always going to be a BIG ask. Maybe Newcastle and Kidsgrove can do us favours in the coming few days, who knows, we might lose at Shaw Lane and still win the title, if not and it has to be the play-offs so be it, we might set a record as the only team ever to get 100 points and not go up!!! I have faith in these lads, they have not gone through the trial and tribulations of this season to let it go easily and they WILL take us up I am sure.
