Well, ambling anyway. But we’ll take that, (a clean sheet!) and hope for a good draw on Monday.
For me getting to the Third Qualifying is what you hope for. Clearly there won’t be any ‘easy’ ties now so further progress will be hard – though most welcome.
I thought today that whilst Carshalton did have a couple of chances during the second half on the whole we were in control and a bit more composure in front of goal would have given the scoreline a more comfortable look. Good to see Steve Hughes on the bench, hopefully he will play some part on Tuesday night but I was sorry to see James Gray looking so forlorn after a setback on Thursday night in training.
Interesting looking at some of comments on the Carshalton message board. I think we can recognise their frustrations from our own experiences of recent seasons. I thought that among the demands for the manager’s head this more restrained posting in particular was worth reading.
Let’s hope we don’t go back there in 4 weeks – I think that game coincides with the 4th qualifying round!
