I'm sure you're right Kimbo, but at least initially it did feel as though the side weren't quite as fired up for this one. As you've said elsewhere, that might also be partly down to the players who weren't on the pitch...

Either way, it's a win, and that's what matters. Other than Moseley, there really aren't any easy games in this division. winking smiley

Not great today I didn't think, ref was very poor mind.

James Stokes was simply the difference between the 2 sides for me! Take him out Cov would have been in bother!

Roll on what you would think is a banker of 10 points from the next 2 games......

BS are a very organised team and played well, and definitely took advantage of Cov's stuttering performance today. I also echo RW's thoughts on Tim Smith's blog, that the players can be affected by the crowd. He was I think talking about our players, but possibly BS got a boost by our crowd's frustration. The referee's observer must have made a LOT of notes today - I imagine he'll have some homework to do before his next match.

A fair assessment from Rowland as usual,but on a positive note the attendance yesterday now brings our average gate to just under 1,800,I am sure some clubs in Championship would like to be in our shoes!Com on Cov!!

Think it was 12-12 with Cov getting penalty try with last play of game. Reason I only think this was score is that scoreboard had been turned off

More worryingly, no one turned the lighting in the grandstand on, which left the steps badly lit as supporters left after the development match.
