K. Southern 6.9
Paid for earlier missed chances. Oliver Norwood showed some real quality in the middle, look forward to watching him play this season.
If they can keep playing like that then the goals will come Hunt did some good runs into space Norwood had good game.
Tight, well-organised defence & midfield. Needed more flair & penetration up front; could have put Spencer or other attackers on 20 minutes earlier for a final push.
Norwood and Hunt excelled. Encouraging additions to midfield bode well. Deserved a point at least. Good start despite the result!
Jack hunt was superb in keeping Bellamy out of the game and also had some great attacking runs, Oliver Norwood was for me the star of the show his Man Utd training really shone through and he looked a league above the rest, but in the end I think it was cruel to go down to such a late goal and we really deserved a point and if we carry on playing like this the play offs are not that far away.
Midfield looked strong, still looked a little suspect at set pieces, and not convinced on Smithies, doesnt command his area or instill the same confidence in the defense as Bennett. Bennett should be first name on the teamsheet.
Town opened the first game of the season proving to the other team in the championships that we are in this league for a reason. Disappointed not to get a draw but there is a lot of positives to take from it.
Thought we knocked it around much better than Preston!! Good overall play with norwood and scannell the main men for me. We would of won if we had Rhodes up top to finish.
