Brilliant, you have unrivalled poll skills.

Also: Is one of your rakes called Mjölnir?

Yes, but I pronounce in a very butchered, American way.

Watching Poveda is so frustrating. You can se he has skill, but he lacks a lot of intelligence to play at a high level. Positioning, awareness, the fact he is a one footed player limits him to being at best a League 1 player.

Brereton-Diaz got a bit greedy right at the end. Could have left it for Buckley, who probably could serve it on a silver platter for Brereton-Diaz.

Was happy to see Poveda go off, that one footedness is absolutely killer if you're not absolutely quality and smart. Khadra definitely has some ability to run at players and track back for defense, press when needed. I would have hoped to see Butterworth instead of Clarkson or Edun, but I understand the need to secure the point and clean sheet.

Can't overly complain though, it was a really shit match. Barnsley had some serious chances gone begging, including a Pickering miscue. Onto the next.

Away point and clean sheet, I’ll take that. Top six as well. Home game next so fingers crossed for the win.
