Let's not be complacent

There's no matchday photo today because none of the estimated 350 Scunthorpe supporters at the match made it to the Rose of Denmark before the game.

After the euphoria of the first four games today's 2-2 draw was a real let down. Even though we were 1-0 up at halftime it still felt as if Chrissie ought to be having a bit of a word with the players - a gentle one, mind

After the second goal it was apparent that Scunthorpe were still determined to take somethimng from the game, and Graham and I were considering the substitution options well before they happened. Replacing the rapidly-tiring Hayes with Euell was an obvious way of fighting back against a determined opposition, and bringing on Doherty to stiffen resistance was another no-brainer. Both of these changes were indeed made, but you have to wonder if they should have been made earlier. The first substitution was Green on for Wagstaff, and I can see why that was done, but surely the other gtwo were more important?#

Still, this has been a salutary lesson for all concerned, players, manager and supporters, i.e. let's not be complacent - there are still 41 matches left.
