Can't think of a single player who looked off it all evening, front to back. The only criticism being the feeble gate. Too many fair weather local based fans happy to stay in the warmth, watching Champions League. The hardy few got a very nice reward. And Newport got off lightly at 5; it really ought to have been 7-8.
I think there are many reasons for the gate being what it was.
1) Poor area so fans generally pick their games a bit more and saving for bigger games.
2) It was really bloody cold tonight. Thank god the flurry of goals last night kept me moving.
3) It's midweek before half term. People could be saving money for then.
All attendances were down tonight. It's just the way it is. We had more than we would of had in the past.
