Two keeper errors? Looked that way from the other end of the pitch. Otherwise a good performance. Some composure from Ginnelly for the finish. Not sure if kirby will get another chance. Mangan quite useful with fresh legs for the last 20 mins or so.
I thought it was an own goal but either way Taylor does not inspire me...both goals conceded were soft as anything from nothing.
Kirby held the ball up well and looked composed - could have had a goal but just out of reach. Ginelly scored a good goal and was busy. We also missed Clarke today as no real outlet down the left.
Overall this was just so typical... we looked excellent for the first 10 minutes with neat one touch passing and I thought this was going to be an easy big victory but after that we lost a bit of composure though all 3 goals were well made.
Delighted by the win but we should not be having to hang on for dear life at the end like this against teams as limited as Maidenhead were today.

Oh and 2 ever constants...
Norwood once again missing a 1 on 1.
The referee - today he was spectacularly bad - if he had been passed a few crisp twenties to try and ensure a Maidenhead win he would have made less obvious errors than he did today - missing a massive deflection with 2 minutes to go and giving Maidenhead a goal kick was truly ineptitude of the highest level.

The worst thing about the ref missing that massive deflection was after the reaction of all 4 sides of the ground the penny dropped, you could almost see the refs thought process as maidenhead attacked ' if they score here im f---ed' he was looking for any reason at all to give us a free kick and managed to spot some shirt pulling on the edge of the box which none of us could see ( my seat is in line with the18 yard line in the paddock) . We all just laughed once it was given it was such a poor decision.... he completely bottled it
