A big well done to them all for taking the journey. They must be absolutely gutted with that last-gasp goal, and scored by Grainger, who received the only card of the game in the same minute he scored.

Well, we played some wonderful football, but paid the price for conceding two sloppy early goals. Carlisle just weren't in the game for the second half...... until another mistake presented them with a late chance. We were far and away the better side.
Two good shouts for a penalty in the second half.

Excellent effort and shows the unity in the squad. Time to put the last 3 weeks behind us and get our squad fit for Colchester.

I do find it shameful and rather sad that the usual suspects were on wilmotts back after just 12 minutes though.

I missed the commentary of the last few minutes of the match. Having heard nearly 90 minutes iFollow decided to disconnect me because I was signed in on another device. By the time I had rectified this, the match was over. Really annoying. Would have been worse though if we'd scored a last minute winner.

I'm sure the amazing away support must have a positive effect on the team. Gutted for all... Heads high though :cheers:

Well, yet again he had to play out of position for much of the game, on the left of midfield. Looked far more comfortable later on when he switched to the right. I'm guessing that Pring may have started if fit, after his lively 15 minutes against Morecambe. We did play some splendid passing football.

Absolutely gutted, moreover for the effort, considering the injury situation, and the Loyal away following! ......
If we can avoid a "banana skin" result next weekend, under similar conditions and regain our league momentum, with an influx of returnees, we will prevail!........

Why didn't Foulston get at least 20 minutes at the end.How is he supposed to learn anything sat on the bench.Missing 3 centre halves and still don't get any game time,Really baffling.

Because we were playing superb football and there was no need to break the rhythm of our play. Just out of interest, who would you have replaced with Foulston?

Jay should have started because he is a CB and Butler and Pipe are not.He could have played with MD and Pipey around him to help him.When will he play if he can't play now with only one genuine CB available.

Really felt we were lacking height at the back.You cannot play with only one recognised centre back as was proved.Carlisle hadn't scored for 8 hours before yesterday.

Hmm..... Yet none of Carlisle's goals came from any deficiency that could be put down to lack of height at the back.
