Wasn't sure about the selection, but I think it worked pretty well for most of the game. I assume Kilgallon is injured? Tshiembe did such a good job he wasn't missed. Want's been due a rest, but it was quite a shock to see Penny get a start (his first in the league, I think?) albeit he did well. Ziggy did a great job marking Candeias out of the game, and was rightly aggrieved at getting subbed...
... but it was the right decision! Most of us felt we could have been more attack-minded in our approach today, and that's what we got when Boyd replaced Ziggy. Delighted to see Boyd score yet another wonder goal - the boy's a fantastic prospect. Sadly, our hopes only lasted 2 minutes.
No complaints from me about Martin Canning's selection, formation and tactics. I thought he got things more-or-less right today.
No complaints about the performance either. Inside the last 10 minutes things were looking good, and the worst I could envisage was a narrow 2-1 defeat. The scoreline really didn't reflect the game, and flattered our opponents, who must have been relieved to win at all, far less by so many.
Least said about the refereeing the better. Classic case of a big team getting all the decisions. Morelos should have got his second yellow for simulating a blow from Bingham - right in front of the referee! My take on the pens was the first was probably hand ball, but the second was a dive - but open to correction when I see TV coverage.
Disappointing in the end, but we certainly gave them a game.
