Harry comes back to right back to get the ball then goes off on a run and goes 50 yards and wins a free kick 25 yards out.

Tails up now. Can only beat what痴 in front of you. Very professional management of the game in the 2nd half on our part, impressive number of chances created. Could still manage a 4th you feel.

Defensively not tested as much today. Our offside trap has been more of a feature this game, not sure if that is necessarily by design, but effective enough, I知 giving them credit for it anyway.

Rochdale are a broken team.

We have played very well this half though.

Good win, hopefully this is the turning point with Wakeling probably MoM. Rochdale comfortably the worst side I have seen in a long time consistently creating their own problems.

Hopefully it will calm the nerves a bit!  Some good individual performances by the sound of it as well.....

Rochdale put to rest the adage that there are no easy games in football - that was a walk in the park.  They will go down.

Could have been a bigger margin, some good performances on the front foot.

Wakeling looks a good prospect.

Please, please, never, ever, play Darcy at right back ever again.  He really cannot defend for toffee - an average team would have really made us pay for that decision.  On the flip side, to show I am not just trying to find negatives, please, please, get Darcy into the midfield somehow.  He is a little livewire on the ball, maybe with more potential than Payne.

Not sure we learned an awful lot about our prospects other than the fact there are indeed some teams out there we will easily finish above.

Still have no idea about Adeloye - how can a player manage to be nowhere near anything - did he even manage to get a touch?

You take these when they are presented to you - for the poor performances in previous games, getting those points from the draws become valuable when you can put a team to the sword as easily as this.  You do not have to be a great team to end up in a good position in this league.

Oh, and Hawes seems unable to tell the difference between Aguiar and Wakeling when they are on together.  For anyone who listened, it was the former who set up the third goal.  He looked like he has a bit more about him physically.

Struggled with Blake Tracey and Williams too.

He made one really quite decent tackle to stop a counter attack. Think that might have been it, but he was only one seven minutes.

You're right about Aguiar/Wakeling though - Aguiar both missed the chance just before and set up the third.

Agree Darcy at right back is a defensive issue, but it's not exactly like Hutton has shown any semblance of defensive positioning and Darcy was excellent going forwards.
