Stoke Last Night....

Post by Steve Russell »

The pre-match session produced one shot into the R's faithful
which knocked a woman's glasses off :roll:

I had travelled up on the coach with some hope but that soon evaporated
after Paul Smyth's two early strikes at goal. The first & only one on target was
well saved & the other hit the side-netting.

It was obvious that playing Sinclair Armstrong upfront on his own wasn't
working & when it might have been, he was taken off :?: He was getting fouled on &
off the ball (no bookings for any Stoke players!) & it was all very predictable.

As were our corners :roll:

Asmir Begovic did make 2 good saves in the 1st half but we got
done again from a set-piece & as for his distribution, on one occasion he gave the
ball directly to a Stoke player just outside the box!!

The sense of urgency finally arrived in the last 15 mins or so, which included the 8 added..

Over 700 R's fans travelled.

What a massive let down. How could we produce such an inept performance against a poor team like Stoke?

Costly defeat :(
