He missed a spectacular amount of handballs. 

But special mention to the linesman who went to sleep on the halfway line and missed  a 4-yard offside in the 1st half.

Cannot fault the players after that, poor two goals to give away but the character to equalise in 111th minute was incredible. It's a shame we don't do end of season dos anymore because they deserve a chance for us to say thank you and sadly probably goodbye to a few

Watched the stream as I'm away for work and their centre half taking an age to be treated for an 'injury' changed the second half, I think it was even after Morgan should have been awarded a penalty, definitely dark arts at play there.

Spence easily man of the match for me, Morgan again superb as well as Nuge even with the sloppy goals conceded.

Proud of the team and the travelling barmy army

Now let's keep kingy at the wheel!

Wasn't to be was it Sad

We played as well as we had all season and were better in the first half without scoring. After Kieran scored I was surprised when they did cos they hadn't threatened but they got their tails up and scored again but that goal on 99 minutes by Sion (I think) was one of those moments that will stay in the mind for a long time.

I wonder if we'd have won the shootout had it been at our end?

Yep missed a lot of hand balls and fouls on Dada, Thought It was a clear push on Morgan which the replay showed It was a clear 2 hand push.
Actually heard King saying " Hes nearly caught the fu#king ball" at one point.

First half very cagey and apart from Hall rushing out for some reason not much happened. 2nd half though we were immense to start with and what a well worked goal. Since King has taken over we have been scoring goals like that which is something we never did under Mansell. We were never really under any danger until Brackley scored and it was such a poor goal to give away. It was as if they thought they had done the job as they cleared the ball the first time and were half asleep the 2nd time. Good finish for their 2nd to be fair, but what a way for us to send the game to extra time and superb from Barnes-Homer to set the ball up nicely for Spence to create the chance in the first place. We should have had a penalty when Spence was fouled so not sure how he gave it as a dive.

Extra time you could tell both sides were tired but Phillips could have and maybe should have won it for us, but a fine save by the Brackley keeper. Shame that he also went onto miss the crucial penalty as well, but I've seen worse pens and at least he forced the keeper into a save. They worked their socks off tonight though and that is all you can really ask for.

Coverage was very good from NTV as well and the commentator did a very good job on the whole. Not sure listening to Radio Glos with the stream would have worked given the delay and not sure why anyone would have wanted to have done that anyway.
