Blames Sweeney for the first goal but no mention of Sir Mals horrific control giving them the ball?

fair comment. I didn't take the clip back far enough in rewatching that. I'm amending now.

Whilst today's performance was not as poor as away at Notts Co, there was a similarity, in that the opposition had more desire to win, and were more aggressive.

However, to keep perspective, we're still having a good season and in a decent position to gain automatic promotion, it's still in our hands.

Comical defending for both goals.

Although far away I think poor control/pass from Atkinson caused the second goal although it was calamitous after that???

no. Atkinson wasn't involved.

You may be thinking of the later 1-on-1 for Miller which I have described.

Atkinson tried to play Miller offside for the first goal, but was useless at it.
Can we play Accrington Stanley every week.

Only if we match MK game for game and beat them last game, Bury and Lincoln are away and gone now for me so it's down to us and MK for 3rd. Looking at our next 4 games I struggle at the moment to see where anything more than 4 points will come from for us (unless the team grow a proper set of gonads in the meantime) and we could be cast adrift. There can't be anymore 'relaxed' performances from now on in, but I feel teams have us sussed and as did Clownty, Newport and Vale will press us high and win the battle and we struggle to find any rhythm when that happens.

Refs often get a lot of criticism but I thought that this one deserved a 9. Let the game flow, wasn't fooled by the usual exaggeration and seemed to get the decisions correct. Never let players influence him unduly. Some refs might have given us a penalty at the end for the Smith incident but he probably made the right call.

Too far away but did he bottle it late first half from the succession of corners and Pearce pulled back as about to shoot??

What was useless was Benning's control leading up to the first goal, absolutely horrendous.
