... by promising, and delivering changes. That takes nerve.

But the only unforced change- Duke/Nicco- he got completely wrong.

Are you talking about at half time or from the start?

I though duke should have started, played well when he came on.

Plays in midfield and his name is Tommy Miller,
signed him from Huddersfield his name is Tommy Miller,
first touch is average but his second is a killer,
heeeeeey Tommy Miller!

He should have dropped Duke when he was rubbish every week... Not when he was regaining his confidence and starting to do the job!

My point is dropping Duke for Nicco was unenforced. The only unenforced change he made.

Duke has been our best player recently, the only one who wants to wear the shirt. Nicco simply doesn't have the pace Dukes got to play there.

King got it wrong.

Nicholas doesn't have the pace? Are you stupid?

Not quite sure why he took Nicholas off at half-time, he was doing alright, but Duke was great when he came on.

I've seen so many posts calling for that exact change to be made though even just in the last few days. You can't please everyone.

if our whole team had the same amount of committment and work rate as duke then we'd be doing a lot better than we are. one player in particular, brian howard, has been lacking these qualities for most of this season and today was an absolute disgrace. he doesn't deserve to start on wednesday.

King wanted to go 3 at the back, 4 across the middle and push Igoe on - thats why he made the change allegedly - bollocks is what I would say.

I thought igoe looked almost like a 3rd striker for most of the second half.

On the radio interview I think King said that he decided to play a front three in the second half, of Roberts on the left, Igoe on right and Parkin in the middle. Light Bulb

It worked...we got a goal. Cool
