One of the most idiotic fouls I've ever seen to give them the free kick which led to the equaliser.

We have to remember these players are at this level for a reason. My gripe is the style boro play and lack of creativity in the team which ( with (bad defending) we have seen in many other teams.

Thought he was at fault for there goal, could have come for the ball, think under pressure against good sides he would struggle, he wasn’t even first choice at Ilkeston he was their back up keeper

Selection looked like “change for change sake”.

What was formation…. Or was there one?

Osborn seems to pop up, play, then disappear for a month.

I see Benbow was sub BUT didn’t feature in the big mid-week cup game.

No baker either.

I was actually happy with the point . Hednesford we're the better team but we hung in there and posed a threat when we did get forward . Hard earned point but that's what we need to start picking up . On the plus side young lad from Huddersfield had a good game and looks a decent signing .

The conditions certainly played a part.
There is no denying the wind had a very major role in the game.

And as has been said elsewhere there wasn't a starting player I thought was not working hisarae off.

Every player on that pitch for Boro seemed to be giving it 100% it's just that a number are average SL standard players so there's a limit to the level of there performances . We actually achieved a point yesterday against a better team than us , i know that's sad to say but it's where we are . Our aim for this season has got to be to stay up , again it's where we are , and that's going to mean battling for every point , sometimes against the odds . Yesterday we did that so the players actually deserve a pat on the back as there probably doing as much as they can .

i agree with you here.
its very difficult to just go from rank bad to good in one spin of the dice.
you have to stop losing games first.
touch wood we appear to have started picking up points in games
that at the start of the season we were losing.
lets see where we go from here. maybe we can push on.... maybe not.
whatever..... staying up under the present circumstances is im afraid our lot.
apparently.
60 yrs ago today a certain Jimmy Hill rode into town to take on as manager
at a broken down going nowhere underachieving club
he transformed the club to be the sky blues. he gave the fans their pride back in the club
and went on a wonderful adventure
so dont give up the ghost just yet.

Bloody freezing and the football could not produce much warmth either. But having said all that there was a lot of effort and either side could have won it in the end if some of the scambles had been put away. God I must be a masochist continually going in the hope that we produce a good 90 minutes performance and I come away purring...click click I am back in the room!!.

The club officials have generally not been at the club as long as others - who to believe ?

Don’t forget to check out the junior section, youth teams, under 21s, woman’s teams, and dart boards also before judging by watching the reason the club exists for and 400 people paid to watch.
