It’s the time of year for giving and City’s defence are handing out goals gift wrapped left, right and centre.

I really want to say that we actually played well but we conceded five goals.

Sad to see Matt McClure score and celebrate. I don't think he ever did when he scored for us Sad

About right. Focussing on the positives - if we attack like that, and defend like we normally do, we'll win most games.

Just please don't defend like that most games!

Feels like a missed opportunity.
Played some good stuff, and really could have scored more.
Frustrating that we do all the hard work up front, then let them waltz through and score shortly after. Hey ho...it's only the Trophy!

It could have been 4-1 today at half time so only 2-0 down was a relief. Matt McLure was going to score today wasn't he.I feared a real drubbing in the second half. Elliott Durrell is a good little player but I'm really not sure he's equipped to play right back. Credit to Danny Wright for putting in a shift, but Beresford and Harry Emmett coming on seemed to make the difference. Joe Hanks took a great penalty,Beresford got one and Liam Cross scored a brilliant goal from outside the box (I think) to get us to 4-3. At that point it felt we might be witnessing a miracle. Unfortunately Jeacock's blunder to make it 5-3 put the game to bed.
The positives. It was ultimately entertaining. We are scoring goals. There will be some changes for Tuesdays encounter. MOTM Jamie Reckord. He put in a couple of crunching tackles first half and distributed the ball well all game.

I should have added that it was much appreciated to have a coach running again. Thank you to all involved.

we went from 0-3 to 2-3 in 4 minutes 28 seconds. That's why chucking it away afterwards was so disappointing.

Embarrassing from Cook to be sent off. Tuesday will be tough with Peterborough doing well at the moment and had a very good result today. Can only hope that being at home will help

Why? I can only assume it was for comments made when Harry Emmett was fouled only for the ref to ignore it.

The ref was wrong, Cook was right yet Cook gets punished for the refs ineptitude.

Managers should know better. Sums up where we are right now though that despite having ex players and manager of theirs they still stick 5 past us.
