Bit surprised that Macdonald moved to right-back rather than Rides.

Only 15 mins gone but we’ve not been great. Look a bit shaky at the back. Need a goal to settle us down

Not really got a rhythm going yet. We should grow into it.

Yes I’m the same. Rides has played RB before and McDonald better going forward on his natural left side.
Obviously we’ve been winning games but I’d still prefer feeney on the right wing playing to his strengths

Morris has been poor this half I think, keeps giving the ball away. Fair play to Brackley though, they're making it difficult and defending well!

Yes, they are working hard but our final ball has been frustrating.

Not a great half from us at all. Some bits and pieces but don’t think their keeper has had a save to make. We’ve been sloppy at times giving the ball away and they have looked dangerous on occasions often coming down the left side. Hard to believe they have won one game all season and are 16th in their division. They are very organised and working hard but we’ve been fairly average all over the pitch. Wouldn’t mind Ferrier and Lloyd on to shake it up as fairly easy for their centre backs so far. As white squaddie says Morris has been poor but Khan and CBT not much better

We might be better off going 442 to get some width and isolate CBT against the full back.

Yes, we need CBT running at them, that's where he is most dangerous.

That was a very poor half, they carried more threat than us. Our passing was poor the build up laboured & the first time passes & flicks not come off.

Hill needs to earn his keep here as something probably needs to change as at this rate we could lose this plus they have won their last two cup ties on penalties so would obviously be happy with a shootout. Good options on the bench though

Worst 45 since Jackson left so will be good to see what Hill does at half time.
That said our superior fitness should mean they can't keep this pressing going for another 45 and I suspect plenty of chances will come...

They are working hard and stifling us a little. That can be expected in cup games. I'm sure our quality will come through and I can't see them keeping up the same level of intensity.

It's been a troubling first half and Brackley have had the better off it, including dispossessing Clarke on one occasion. Not sure that it's fair to single Morris out, he's tried to do different things, whereas Feeney has been more predictable. Maybe someone like Danny Lloyd could mix things up a bit and pressurise their players more, it's been too comfortable for the visitors.

Still not great this. The visitors looking threatening at times. Vaughan needs some help up top

Sometimes when Morris is on the ball nobody shows as he is capable of picking a dinky little pass.

Still no sign of improvement, this is getting a tad worrying at the moment need to move it around quicker we are making it too easy for them.
