Star Player

Harry Worley a surprise choice by Chris Wilder to play Harry Worley as the holding midfield man but he disrupted the play until he was replaced due to fitness.

Summary

6 consecutive losses equal the record number lost in a season, but the record secquence is 7 in 1991 where they lost the last two matches of 90/91 and first 5 of 91/92.

To be fair it was an encouraging performance from the yellows team with some positives from some individuals making a return from the injured list. I'm sure a result is just around the corner now.

I was pleased that Michael Raynes got to play at the NYS - and, actually, I thought it was the best I'd seen him play

Have to say Caz looking at your team I think your easily get into the top three, but think you'll win the division. Shame we gave you a penalty to get you back in the game, it was just a stupid tackle. A great breakaway goal to finish us off after we nearly leveled the match. Best of luck until we meet again

as I havent watched them since they beat Bournemouth, what has gone wrong to see then lose so many. are we looking at a manager who has taken them as far as he can, is it just one of those things or are we looking at bigger issues

have to say we are a tad unlucky at the moment we need a few of the walking wounded back to add experience and competition. We will be ok in a month or so

fingers crossed
