Not obvious from low down in the Atyeo Stand who failed to mark Aden Flint, looks like Foley was challenging him from the photo from Phil's match report but if the man marking demanded an attacker to mark defenders who came up for the corner then perhaps it was Murphy at fault.
In between their goals we were playing a good passing game along our left flank, a long way off the hoof ball some say is all we play, with Sears and Knudsen bringing Maitland-Niles and Foley into neat rectangles that passed around the Bristol defenders and fed the ball to Pringle for a couple of good chances.
But Maitland-Niles failed to control a couple of balls that led to dangerous Bristol attacks (although one of those was when the ball was played too high into him), Knudsen made some vital defensive interceptions but then annoyed most of our support by wasting possession with aimless long passes forward and Sears seemed to lack the necessary pace to really make his runs incisive. Still I was happier being in the Town away support than following the game in the chatroom with the occasional mention on Five Live.
OK, the 'Drink Up Thee Cyder' over the tannoy was annoying having lost but surely that must be plain embarrassing for the home crowd, and I liked the 'small town in Wales' chant.
Before the Swindon game in 1999 I visited Britain's largest stone circle, Avebury, nearby and we went on to win 0-6. Yesterday I visited Britain's second largest stone circle, Stanton Drew, just south of Bristol. So why am I only predicting a 0-2 win.
Anyone got any idea if we will be playing in blue shirts with some other colour shorts or will the 'Barcelona' strip get another outing?
'Despite their positive league form, the Tractor Boys have the worst passing accuracy in the Championship (62.5).'
I find this curious when you consider that we tend to have the majority of posession in games, and the quote acknowledges our good form - top six with the worst passing accuracy!
It can be explained, in part anyway, by our more ambitious passing strategy (hoof ball, if you want to dismiss it as that) where most passes are intended to have a significant impact on the game and are not keeping possession (which does not appear to work for teams playing against us) or 'patient build up' passes.
So, interesting as statistics are, we all know that there is only one statistic that counts. However I think this passing statistic actually supports MM's claim that he doesn't need any new squad members because if we get just a bit better understanding, and maybe a bit more drilling, of the current squad we do have a team that can win promotion.

I do the meat free Monday so it is Haggis with tatties tonight (and peas in place of neeps, I'm afraid). Here is Rabbie's footnote from 'Epitaph On A Noisy Polemic' in case there is anything unsaid on the Steve Evans comments - 'a fluent controversialist on matters beyond his understanding'.
