Jordan Roberts made a difference: it was good to have a long ball option. And we pressed a lot, at least in the first half.
Lambert has also found the best role for Freddie Sears, which is no small feat. He was our best player, shifting all around the front line and linking play well. Jordan Spence played well too, and Pennington made the best tackle I've seen at PR for a long time.
We looked a proper team at last.
The bad: well, we panicked. PNE were threatning a bit before the goal, and there was an odd gap left in the wall for the free kick. When they lost their keeper, everyone thought we'd just start shooting at will and pumping crosses at Paul Gallagher; we just sort of assumed it would happen. The crowd got restless, and the players rushed things too much. PNE finished stronger than us because we were panicking.
Still, I'm optimistic. Oh, and from the SAR stand, the NS sounded in very good voice, which was great to hear. Good work getting a Paul Lambert song going early doors, even it doesn't scan :-)
