According to their twitter account, they have sold out a seventy-seater coach for Saturday, so it looks like there could be a decent crowd on again. #COYDB

A former player's Dad told me that they'd almost filled three coaches. We'll wait and see.

Well that was hard work. Think they matched us in every position. Plus Ryan Winder taking that last minute free kick did nothing for the nerves!
Hopefully we will put in a better display in the replay.
Nothing on the main site but assume it will be Tuesday.

Seemed to me that we played well below our potential, and probably they played above theirs. The end result of a draw was the right one, neither side did enough to win. First half we only looked like scoring from set pieces, at least in the second we created a couple from open play, although I think their keeper only made one save (& made a bit of a meal of that)
It can't have helped our organisation to have both centre halfs missing, hopefully at least one of them will be available on Wednesday. I like both Blinks & Carsley, but I don;t think that they're the best pairing, I'd put Walker with one of them.I think it's time for a look at Sam Joel too

Presumably Luke Thompson had just a one match ban for two yellow cards. We seem to have a fair number of walking wounded: Ben was limping through much of the second half, Nozza took another heavy knock, and Brad didn't look likely to be fit for Wednesday. Especially first half we looked lethargic: they were quicker to the ball, or quick to rob us as we dawdled . I agree about the anxiety as RW took that last minute free kick.
Not impressed by the referee who missed a lot--presumably the same one for the replay?
A bit concerned about the cautions we are collecting. Scholesy has been booked every time I have seen him (three times) and someone commented that Paul Dawson has collected four cards--perhaps he is looking for a full set, as in the days of bubblegum cards.
Just have to hope for a major improvement on Wednesday

I agree with Broker re the ref. He made (or in some cases didn't make!) a number of questionable decisions & seemed a bit lost at times. I'm sure turning down the early penalty for Vics, which I didn't think was a pen, but they do get given , didn't please their lot, and how he gave them a late corner when our player that put the ball out was assaulted as he played the ball are the ones that stood out most for me.
I may be a little over-hopeful,but I would like to think that we can raise our game enough tomorrow to win the replay. I don't think they can play that well again, and I'm hoping that we can't lay that badly again.

Totally agree. I think we'll win tonight, provided we up our game. We should have Thompson back, allowing Cowperthwaite to strengthen the midfield and give us a tighter grip on the midfield than we had on Saturday. Assuming Carsley is ruled out, I'd like to see Walker start alongside Blinks.
P.S I thought the attendance on Saturday was poor, given that they brought close to a hundred. They also outsang  us, which is unusual. They'll have similar backing tonight, so we'll have to be at our best.

Nice to see we got back to playing football last night rather than hoofing it long

From following our twitter coverage,it would seem that we created numerous chances & could have won by a bigger margin. Again it seems we failed to convert our chances. It would be be nice to see our strikers start finding the back of the net,it would be a big mistake to become over reliant on Chuck's goals,or on any one player for that matter. Last season our top scorer was midfielder Rob Wilson & so far it looks like it'll be another midfielder. Has anyone other than Nozza scored more than one so far?
