It was a strange looking line-up, McNulty was no surprise , Clarke, who was ill, and Rides who had a stiff neck, the rest was a mystery. The Hughes/Duggan/Tollitt substitutions not a clue.
The defence today was a little jittery, and nearly gifted them a goal early on. The first Maidstone goal was a free kick into the area (which the ref allowed them to retake after they tried to take a quick one and lost possession), not sure who was responsible but it wasn't dealt with (possibly Davis should have cleared it). Their penalty looked a bit soft, but their player had been able to carry the ball a long way without anyone putting in a challenge. The concerning thing for me was that on a plastic pitch, too many passes in our midfield were not finding their man, and there was a reliance on punting the ball forward.
I thought Monthe had a good fame, he is clearly a big strong lad, and read the game reasonably well.
To go behind twice and come away as winners shows some character.
