I think so. Roasting hot, 35degrees some say, of course players were going to flag after an hour. Plenty of quality subs on the bench and, Grounds apart, of a good young age. MT should have used them, he got it wrong.So did KMT fail to use the substitute options appropriately ?
Agree with this. The first goal Sparkesy allows the cross to be delivered too easily, but Hartridge also just leaves Smith and should have picked him up.Just seen the goals. The first was reminiscent of Stubbsy's against Satanage in respect of the first cross, the Cambridge player was all over our defender like a rash and 99 times out of 100 you would expect a free kick to be given. Then it was just very poor, weak, lazy defending from Sparksey to let the cross come in. The second one we let them play to easily out on the touchline and then when it came Tim Dieng didn't have a clue where his man was, didn't get off the deck and the ball ends up in the back of the net.
Mind you, saying about weak defending, if we had conceded our goal I'd be ripping our defender to pieces for it. It wasn't exactly the strongest challenge by Sam and he went over like a sack $4it and gave the ball away.
