I’m not sure I agree, Boz. We don’t want to risk a fixture pile-up like Carlisle. While we are in form, let’s keep playing. The tired ones in the first team can have a break next Tuesday while the semifinal is played against Oxford.I think it would probably work in our favour if the Grimsby match gets postponed. Jaded players can get more of a rest and the manager can make more measured judgements on our failure to make good use of possession, highlighted by Ian rather than blaming it all on a defensive lapse, which would be less critical had we used the ball better.
We'll have to agree to disagree on this one, BBTC, while life wouldn't be the same if I wasn't disagreeing with RLC about something. We weren't in form last night both on the playing and management sides, but part of the problem was that the same players have played so many continuous games that they are getting jaded. Throw into the mix that we seem to struggle against opponents who play the Stevenage way, last night's response was to copy their style, rather poorly. Alternative approaches to deal with this need to be worked on by the management, as it's not the first time this season we've come unstuck against that type of opponent and style of play. Grimsby may do something similar and while recognising their current poor form, historically Blundell Park hasn't been a happy hunting ground for Rovers at the best of times.I’m not sure I agree, Boz.

I am mindful that there is no guarantee that the season will be completed. If so, we need to make sure that unlike last season, we benefit from PPG.
Just watched it back myself. You could argue that Clarke could have tightened up on the scorer too. I don't think any of the individual errors were glaring, but collectively they gave an opportunity to the visitors which they took full advantage of.Just watched the goal again.
