Goddard starts (Napa out). No sub keeper on the bench.

No sub keeper, like the risky feel of that selection!

What has Casey done to get on the wrong side of the Ref? Ref seems to have it in for him and that started before the game - something occurred between them that saw Casey Chuck his water bottle into the dug out and stomp into the changing rooms 😳

Really tough game this, Halifax are a good side. Defenders are massive but can play. 7 is really dangerous.

Spasov not quite on it - right areas and some good touches, but distribution has been a little bit below where it needs to be.

Cook struggling a little for the first time this season?

Ref poor.

that looked inside the area to me. not sure it was a foul but since it was given, lucky it wasn't a pen

Collier is a liability. That could quite easily have been 2 penalties given away in 5 games.

How is Collier anywhere near this starting 11?

He’s been average defensively but he adds absolutely nothing going forward. Quite often passes it straight to the opposition.

Happily taking a point from that. Shotton was excellent

Halifax the better side but didn't do enough to win. Fair result imo.

Dare I say it we missed Napa running at people, his end product may not always be there but he causes enough confusion for others to feed off.

Any idea why the sports apps are reporting it as 0-1 full time?

Because Hyde knocked in the net after the final whistle and he’s counting it.

solid result

they looked a decent side - light years ahead of D and R the other night

Presumably Jarvis will start sooner or later - be interesting to see how we get him, Goddard and Tarpey in the same team - or if it's going to be two games in one game out for all three in rotation

Collier - no point berating but someone took a booking to clear up a mistake he made and it won't be the last - I hope Gerring is in an oxygen tent or with Trump's doctors or something

You would think so as he is a specialist right back, it was also nice to see Spasov leave one on that thug Clark

Midfield worked very hard today, Halifax are a decent play off bet

You know what?
I thought Collier was decent today. Yup. He got beaten by an express-pace nippy winger. What RB hasn’t?

He’s trusted as backup when the others load up the opposite box for corners and free kicks and mopped up well all day. He mainly passed to his teammates and cost us zero goals, including some important blocks and tackles.

The choice of Collier or Cook at RB? It’s a no-brainer for me.

Only because Cook should be CB... Cook is the better RB for me, even if just because he adds something to our attacking play.

Having said that I think Collier has shown he is capable of providing cover when we need him.

Get outta here

When I see him play I think..

Casey would steam straight past him

Tarpey would put him on his backside

Jarvis would do the same

Goddard would do the same

And we're not winning the league so God knows what weapons are out there.

Cardsboard is as full of weapons as I could stand already, thank you! 😁

My view: Cook (bless him) is good, but he looks like an accident waiting to happen and even Shotton got a booking today because he got caught in the wrong place - and he oozes class, so showing that nobody’s perfect. Casey does great stuff going forward, and he doesn’t have to do as much actual defending because of his fantastic flopping, but he gets caught out now and then too.

I’m saying we’re a Conference defence, and nobody’s not made mistakes. Yes, the winger caught Collier out, but as I said, that’s what wingers do to every fullback.

If Collier was a new signing, with no baggage, he wouldn’t be getting any of this criticism because he’s been perfectly steady and hasn’t looked particularly out of place.

From the opposite end of the spectrum our England International‘s (brilliant though he might be) first three touches on Tuesday were to pass the ball to the opposition and into touch twice, but we’re all waiting for him to be brilliant. It’s almost as though with Collier that people are just watching him waiting for him to be shite.
imho he’s not.

I rarely like to be critical of our own, but the general criticism of Collier is fair. Often found out of position, coupled with an frequent aversion to close down his man - I’ve no idea how/why Halifax didn’t exploit this more today. Clumsy in the challenge, conceding needless penalties and free kicks. Passing is usually uninspiring, if not straight to the opposition.

The one trait he does seem to have going for him is his ‘versatility’, although I’d argue this more just stems from never having stamped his authority on a particular position, as opposed to a natural ability to apply himself to varying roles.

IMO should only ever deployed as a last resort, to plug gaps left by injuries/suspensions etc.
