As it stands(1-0 after 60 mins) it looks like a few people on here will be having humble pie later. :D

Hi
No, they'll be saying it would have been 1-4 if only KMB had played.

I think we may have won this game bit a bit of Reece Brown ( or even KMB ) magic but having said that Luke James deserved his place - he never stopped running, laid on some good passes and had a great shot on goal, well saved by their keeper.

I thought a Brown / Marsh Brown with 15 to go would have been good. A few of our forwards looked tired and someone who could get hold of the ball and work something of an opportunity when not much was on might have stopped the ball coming back so quickly. Take nothing away from the players who gave their all today though.

Brown wasn't in the team, taken ill with flu.

And helped in the goal by forcing a defender into a mediocre headed clearance. He is a real team player too.

His industrious nature was important and worked well, particularly in the first half running the channels and chasing balls. There were a couple of times where I thought he could have whipped an earlier ball in on his left foot from the left by-line but he ended up cutting back in to his right foot which allowed the defender to close him down and force the ball back to our defence and allow Notts to settle and make us start again. I also thought he should have slid Doidge in rather than have the shot which went over in the first half too, but equally it's nice to see players willing to take shots. I do still feel he needs to score more goals for his position than he has managed in the last season or two. But I honestly don't want to take too much away from what was a really big contribution by him to the team yesterday. I think it is exciting sometimes though to also think about the improvements we could make, as ultimately the improvements will win us points.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
