Some interesting comments on that Coventry forum. The Otis chap made a few comments that some of our fans have been making this season such as:
"Been very disappointed with Mansfield. Was expecting a bit more than long ball punts."
"Well, Mansfield deserved that. They had the beating of us down the flanks, so I do find it quite baffling as to why they kept playing long balls down the middle all the time......Thought they were faster and stronger than us and that told ultimately."
"Mansfield seemed to be only using long punts upfield and that was entirely true. Out of every ten balls up field I would bet you that eight of those were directly up to their forwards. They were looking so dangerous WHEN they went out wide, so why Evans decided to deploy that tactic is beyond me but I never said they were only long ball merchants."
There are signs of green shoots though and we are starting to create more chances and building up a bit of momentum. Hopefully we can go on a nice run before Christmas and move into the play off positions.
