Good lift for us, a couple of town end stewards being pricks though. I only kicked off because they decided to try and rough a couple of blokes up which nearly flattened me as I was walking by. Twats.

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

Agreed, seen nothing to shake the feeling that he is stealing a wage so far. That said he hasnít exactly been given that much time to show what he can do. Hope Iím entirely wrong and we are nervously hoping to hold onto him in the Jan window as he races into double figures...

So, if we actually sign this fabled striker, who drops out?

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.

RB has been a notable weak link for us. The Stockport scouts will not have to watch much to know to target that area.

On merit possibly Khan or Williams, by the sounds of it some on here would go with Gladwin. Has been our best midfielder this season IMO though.

That said take out Khan and we suddenly look a little light on the box-to-box engine front. Not an easy decision for sure.

Williams looked less effective in the first few games than last year. Felt he had a good understanding with Iandolo and Payne. The interplay with FBT is getting somewhere though, hopefully that develops a bit more.

Do we know how long Ellis is out for?

Williams would rotate with Gladwin and Wakeling would move wider.

Williams 100%. I think heís better off the bench anyway

Be criminal dropping Khan. Recovered ball really well today and once again played the pass that led to a goal.

Strange we had more home fans on a wet Tuesday evening then we did on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Still decent, like.

Pleased for Lindsey.

Finally a win. Relieved. Much needed 3 pts, clean sheet also. Wakeling brilliant, just terrorises the opposition and doesnít stop and once more it earns him a goal and assist. Gladwin brilliant- key player this season. Khan brilliant again for me, wins ball back, can run up and down the pitch and did well to play the pass for the second goal. Darcy looked going forward, but as a right back, defensively he was abysmal (not his fault, heís out of position). Rochdale carved us open 2 or 3 times down that side, no way he can play there again. A good side woulda taken advantage, Rochdale 100% will be one of, if not the, poorest sides we play this season. Blake Tracey was the standout defender, did everything well, Clayton and McDonald look good together.

Onwards and upwards, roll on Stockport away.

Couldnít watch today, but good result and letís hope we can use that to kick on. Big week ahead to get those reinforcements (come on Simpson, you know you want to) and hold onto Louis and Harry. Sounds like my initial gripe about signing a Burton reserve was wrong. Good 2nd half on Tuesday, and sounds like he was good today.

As you know money is tight and two games within four days was too much for some.
