Krystian Pearce should just have taken that Swindon player out after Alex MacDonald lost control of the ball.

Had enough chances to get at least a point....

At least we only have to wait until Tuesday to start the final run in to the 1st division.....

The last 3 goals we have conceded have been due to bad individual mistakes and not good play,
Hopefully we can cut these out and make teams earn their goals against us

Whilst i did not think we played poorly i certainly cannot remember other than the 1 that Hemmings attempted to lob the keeper any other clear cut chances we created.

Having watched these highlights I think we were lucky the score was not more than 1-0. One problem the defence has is right full back. As much as I like Paul Anderson as a player he is not a natural full back. There are several examples in these highlights that help to show the weakness. First when Keisha Anderson took him on and cut back in on to his right foot. A natural full back would have took him wide not allowing a dangerous shot on target which took a class save from the keeper to prevent a goal. The goal Swindon scored on the break away, Anderson had the chance to cover the goal scorer before he received the ball, but decided to cover a player in the centre of defence when there was two stags players behind him to do that very job. This decision allowed time and space for the scorer to set himself and hit the target with another powerful shot which unfortunately beat Logan on his near post. Had Anderson gone out wide to cover the right player he should then take him wide to prevent the shot. And last but not least the cross to the far post where the attacking player easily out jumps Anderson due to the miss match in natural height luckily Bennett hacks it off the line. Love Anderson as a player but as a winger he is more effective. Bennett should be playing full back or try one of the new on loan signings but if something is not addressed at this position we are more likely to end up in the lottery playoffs than an outright automatic promotion spot IMO.

Agree he's not a natural full back but our other right back options don't fill me with confidence either. And I'm afraid Anderson doesn't get into the team as a winger at the moment.

Yeah it is a problem and I assume White will go back into the right back spot for the Newport game.

What is your thoughts Martin on who best plays at right back from the existing squad?

I love to see Paul Anderson in the team because he generally adds a bit of energy and tempo to our play along with Alex MacDonald, CJ Hamilton, Mal Benning and Danny Rose (and even Krystian Pearce at times!). However Hayden White can be very exciting driving forward as well.

We just need to be a bit more creative around the penalty area at times to create opportunities for shots at goal. We hit too many long balls in the 2nd half on Saturday.

I think Bennett is the best defender at right back, but White offers more going forward, and would generally be my first choice. Anderson had been doing well but had a tough time against Swindon, especially against Matt Taylor, in my opinion the best left sided player in league two. I expect White to come in against Newport.

It was unfortunate that Diamond has been given so much paternity leave. Given Swindon's strength on the left, we should have played Bennett at Right Back and Diamond in the centre. But hindsight is a wonderful thing!

Are you saying the club should have refused Zander’s legal right to take paternity leave after the birth of his child.
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.

Haydn White is a better right back than Anderson and needs to be back there now his suspension is over. He may be a bit clumsy at times and make a mistake but his pace is a great asset to have in the defence and gets us out of trouble - He'd have got a lot closer to Taylor for the goal on Saturday for example. Anderson is a good player but doesn't have the pace to keep up with a lot of wingers and I think he is a good player to use off the bench when we want quality balls in the box.

No, I am not saying that he should have been refused his legal right. I would never say that. The operative word is 'unfortunate'. ;)

Jorge Grant I would say is the best left sided player in the league.

Taylor is a former Premier League player, who is still performing at a very high level despite being 36. He's been outstanding against us twice.

Grant is a very talented youngster. I am surprised he is still playing at League Two.

Slightly different types of players of course.

Bennett is a better right back than White, I'd play him there, a back four is there to stop goals, as much as I like White, he has to work hard to get his place back in the side after that ridiculous red card. I'd play Diamond and Pearce at CB, with Bennett and Benning at full back.
