Well I've seen some games over the years watching various clubs but I haven't seen one like this since I saw QPR draw with Newcastle Utd back in the mid 1980s ! (Also 5-5)
1 up from Lewis Driver after a minute then an own goal by Jamie Cassel who punched in his own net (was that his debut for us?) The more regulars amongst u will know more than me. Then in an extraordinary 20 minutes we find ourselves 4 -1 down ! . Must admit we looked dreadful by then . But some how we managed to get back in it two goal before half time by Lewis again and I think Marc Charles Smith 3-4. Then on a real ding doing of a second half which I thought we shaded it ends 5-5 . Great Boxing day entertainment with goals from MCS and Okerabirhie. Took my grown up daughter home from Uni to it and she thought it was great entertainment !
Must admit throughly enjoyed it and fair play to to lads for coming back to draw . Probably a just result, in the end . Keepers for both sides can't be happy with their performances though.

It was certainly an entertaining match. Given the situation we were in after half an hour, it was a remarkable recovery.
I never understand how teams defend long throws. A keeper who is confident with taking crosses of course will take charge, but if not, one centre half must be free from marking anyone & attack the ball., rather than a weaker header of the ball getting isolated. If the first ball is won the long throw becomes pointless rather than cause the chaos we saw yesterday.
Credit to the team for recovering & scoring some very good goals
