Two leagues below us and they passed us off the pitch. That first half was embarrassing. We could have had no complaints if we were 3 - 0 down at the break.
Gutsier second half performance, shows the difference what passing to the feet, pace and movement can do.

Great to come away with a win, a clean sheet and two very good goals to savour. On another night we may have scored six. Ben Amos was outstanding apart from a couple of dodgy kicks.
But I am not going to get carried away. In some respects we won 'ugly' still far too many hoof balls and lumping it into the channels. Bolton were a poor side and destined for relegation I fear but still taught us how to pass the ball to one another and keep possession. I don't know what the figures were but I would not be surprised to hear that Bolton had more of the ball.
Still its not how much ball you have, its what you do with it that counts. With winnable matches coming up Town will soon be back in the mix.

Lacklustre is probably one of the better words I could have used. Desperately need creativity in the centre of the park.. What is the point of playing two wingers if they don't get the ball? What is the point of playing Freddie Sears if you are not going to pass it to his feet?
Mick is correct in saying that keeping loyal and showing players that you have faith in them can reap bigger rewards, but what is this doing to the likes of Parr? He sees two backs not performing well week after week and still can't get a game. Another ineffective game from Douglass what does Bru have to do to get a start? Sometimes loyalty is misplaced when it may be kinder to say "I'm giving a couple of weeks rest".
Time to drop one of the wingers and bring in an extra midfielder, someone with a bit of mobility and an eye going forward (e.g. not Tabb) [actually he would have helped shore up the midfield yesterday]. Time for Bru or Toure (so long as he doesn't take anymore corners!)

Murphy looked a different player than when he played against Huddersfield and was outstanding. He was my man of the match and that wasn't just because he got the two goals.
Mings was superb and as already mentioned he is one who could be gone in the New Year. Wec will do well to hang on to him.
Hyam bossed midfield despite getting booked early doors . He was so good we didn't miss Skuse. Although some credit must also go to Tabb and Bru who both put a good shift in.
Hunt was on a mission and played one of his best games in a blue shirt.
On a negative point, Chambers showed again that, despite giving his all, he isn't a right back. McGoldrick did a lot of brilliant hold up play and some sublime passing but I do worry about his fitness. Last year he would have picked up that ball and scored himself not laid it off for Murphy. Was that because he has lost his pace?
Match summery was that we looked really good going forward but it was squeaky bum time when we started to sit back and let Wolves play.
