I'm afraid we may see more of those grinding out, nail-biting performances before the season's over. Admittedly, not good for those with a nervous disposition, but watching Tranmere we should all be afflicted by this! I'd like to turn it on it's head and give Maidenhead some credit, as I feel they deserve it. Yes, they were a physically big, strong team, but did not revert to the thuggish behaviour that some other teams have. In fact, they had some decent periods of possession with some quality passing and movement between them. They also had some good pace down the flanks, which exposed us for their first goal. They worked their socks off for each other, making it as difficult as they could and didn't crumble on both occasions when going two goals down. They are in a decent mid-table position on merit. Although I don't think we were at our best and I have had time to reflect, it's another three points in the bag which is the most important outcome. Ginneley showed Nors how to do it! (sorry Nors, you had another very good game and scored; what more could we ask.......). I could nit-pick about individual performances (may have done that if I'd have posted immediately after the game), but teams will give their all to make it difficult for us and we rose to the challenge and took the spoils.
