Would have probably taken a point before but can't help feeling we should have won that game. Much better chances than them overall. I would criticise Rowett for not making subs earlier. You could see Smith and Skalak were fading badly. Jed was busy but again his final ball etc. Molumby and Williams were superb today. Cooper was awful. He got caught out twice with players running off him and he nearly gave away a penalty. We have a threadbare squad right now. If Cooper or Pearce or Murray or Romeo get injured we are looking at untested kids as replacements. We need bodies in in January but I don't think we have any money.

Yes I agree ref the subs, Brum were obviously going to try to come on stronger after we scored, think he maybe should have made them on around 70 mins?

A good point away from home, always feel like points lost when you go ahead and end with a draw.
We had some chances, but I would not say they were clear cut chances.
Williams had a good game even if he hadn't of scored, Molumby was a good partner with him, you can see he is an intelligent player.
Thompson's passing was not the best today, a good few passes went out of play on the left hand side, he can run well with the ball at his feet, at one point he was bent in 2 with his head almost on the ground and with the ball at his feet but still made it out past 2 of their players.
Jed ran his socks off and Wallace done well getting forward, more so than Romao, who I think was told to stay back at times, as their main threat was down his side.
Smith done all he could with what he got, got his head to the few balls that went into the box Skalak looked full of running and got his foot in, he will get better with more game time.
Pearce is a good player, but gives away free kicks when he don't need to, Cooper played ok but looks better when Hutch is beside him, Bart had a good game, I think he only had 1 save to make in the first half.
