A performance that built as the night went on. More composure around the penalty area would have seen three points but something to build on after last Saturday. Cheick looked to have gained confidence in the second half after a shaky first half. He just got back to basics.

I think any point (especially away from home) is a good one.
But it sounded to me like we could have got all three tonight, so that’s a bit disappointing.
We’re still in 10th place though so that’s ok with me and I’d have been happy with that at the beginning of the season at this point.
I think January will be very interesting and important one way or another.

If we had properly defended a short corner routine we would have won tonight !

Starting with 6 recognised defenders on the pitch and jev on the bench against lowly Morecombe who are the lowest goal scorers in the division (16 goals in 20 games) should be a sackable offence. Plus we conceded, Absolutely Embarrassing.

Don't understand that starting line up, we looked so much better once Brown was on for Grounds.
The starting line up did exactly what was required for a team that has been conceding goals for fun. We needed to shore things up by starting with a more solid defensive shape. Aside from the sloppy error from Diabate falling asleep at the corner the team looked much better from a defensive pov. Grounds was never going to last 90 minutes so reverting to 3 at the back at the point Brown came on was I suspect pre planned. We needed to stop the rot in terms on conceding 2-3 goals a game and if Stanno and Nombe showed more composure we would have won the game at a canter
