Don't want to be too critical because we've played far worse than that this season and won. If it weren't for some laziness and individual errors at the back as we began to tire, we'd have got something from that. Rose was brilliant in his cameo, and should be starting. Morris had a brilliant debut - him and McWilliams as a midfield pairing made us hard to play through and gave us a bite we've been lacking all season. BAS and Korboa shouldn't be anywhere near the first team.

Will we score a better goal all season?
Probably not, but nine times out of ten...

I thought we looked good and played some genuinely good football in the first half. I say first half, what I actually mean is "until Miller went off". After that we went back into our shells and reverted to type.

FFS! Having been fine through the whole second half, iFollow froze as the ball came off Rose's foot and then resumed a few seconds later after the ball had gone in the net! The replay then played back in what looked like stop motion animation.  Roll Eyes
You missed nothing. Keepers mistake, could have walked to his post and caught it.  Cheesy

What a frustrating afternoon. Thought we more than matched them at least for the first 35 minutes until Miller came off. To have the wheels fall off so late is gutting particularly with two sloppy goals. Was painful watching the ball sail over Harriman's head for the second. Rose's goal was superb.
Not helped at all by a commentator who thought every Lincoln player was god's gift and not knowing any Cobblers player besides Bulger.

Not to break out the Curle-isms but there were positives to take. But once again we can't carve our chances into actual opportunities so we'll get nowhere.

With our starting 11 we looked the better team. Tired in the 2nd half and defence stopped for Lincoln's 2nd goal.
But, we passed the ball better scored a great goal, hit the post with another worldy and were refused a blatant penalty, the defender knocked the ball away with his hand after bringing down Hoskins, FACT.

Said it many times before, Harriman isn't good enough. Nowhere near aggressive enough in his defending. I'm surprised Curle doesn't find an issue with this given his attributes from his own playing career?

I did like what I saw of Morris, he's obviously not going to be the answer of the creative problem, but looks like he can be an improvement in the midfield as an anchor. Still struggle to see where the creativity comes from - probably Sowerby's job today and he didn't quite create enough. Can't just hope Rose scores something from nothing consistently! We need a right wing-back, like Mills someone who is a natural in that position, and Sheehan coming back will gives us hope we can sort the defence out.

Bas looked a step down from when Miller got injured, BUT he did create the once chance we made all game, the Hoskins penalty shout. Not sure I saw too much much from Edmonson tbh

I called Harriman out weeks ago and at the start of the match hes an awful defender, but bringing Korboa and BAS on instead of Marshall and Rose is unforgivable.

Pretty much agree with all of that

Well, you have kept repeating it but KC thinks otherwise. Presumably you have ignored the fact that Sheehan was out?

Nope. Just a bit quicker than Smith chasing the ball.

Marshall wasn't on the bench, so couldn't come on.

Not too disappointed, ref differently favoured them. Still lacking quality in final third. Miller looked quality. Edmundson, early on looked ok but faded. Rose should be starting possibly ahead of Hoskins. Marshall should have been on the bench. Actually looking forward to the game on Tuesday eve.

No commentary on ifollow for me either. Any reason? Having said that almost preferred just having some background stadium sound. Sorry to disagree with many but thought we were very poor throughout and that Lincoln won comfortably enough without too many problems. Difficult times ahead I fear.

The Imps forum is pretty complimentary about the Cobblers performance.
