Very good second half performance. Much more energy and Bowie, in particular, was transformed. Well worth a point and should really have won. Cambridge will struggle to stay up on this showing.

Agreed - watched at Calais on a very small screen & second half we were totally in control and the most likely to take the 3 points playing some good passing football

Really dominant second 45. Marc Leonard's crosses were delightful and thought we should have won all three points. But Brough, well.

Marc leonard has to be in the brighton squad next season

Game changed when Brady took Hoskins off( who was at fault for the first goal) we suddenly started playing football linking passes and all over them, Hoskins isn’t fit, why take Tyreece off and leave the scamp on is beyond me.

Much better second half performance, but Cambridge were poor and we really should have brought all 3 points home but we can't seem to come from behind and win this season.

Point the least we deserved after our second half performance. Happy Lintott played & Bowie avoided the booking which would have given him a 2 match ban.

Can't believe Hoskins stayed on longer than Simpson as he's nowhere near it at the moment.

Thought Cambridge would be full of fire & fight but thought they were awful & could well be one of the 4 to drop.

50 points with 9 to play is some achievement.

First half was disappointing and we looked lacklustre, defence cut open far too easily for their goal and fortunately they missed a good chance immediately before the break. Second half we dominated and it was just a matter of time before we scored and after we appeared to be the only side likely to go and win.

The new colour Hotel End scheme certainly works well for; can actually see 'Reply' at the bottom banner. As for the game was impressed by the turnout of 1068 who remained in 'action' for most of the game but without the high intensity shown at London Rd. Understandably the dreadful display against Peterborough weighed heavily on all present and when Cambridge executed perfectly a Peterborough type goal with winger flashing a hard centre and well put away by a lurking yellow shirted forward with minimum of fuss. For me despair now set in but apart from a rasping drive which somehow failed to trouble Moulden or even the woodwork. I was sitting next to Barry of the Redevelopment Thread who kept reminding me 'if we get to half-time only one down, all might be ok'.
Have no idea what JB said to the team at half time but as the 2nd half progressed we became the dominant  team; Cambridge as an attacking force had all but disappeared. Bowie was playing like a man possessed and the introduction of Appere helped the 'force' too. Eventually we scored from a set piece corner with the admirable Guthrie predictably with a thumping header. All square and so it ended a game of two half's.
What I found extraordinary was the stats on the game - really worth a look chaps!
The sheer exaltation on the equalizer seemed to banish the horrors of last Tuesday evening.
Pity Hoskins was subbed but was the correct decision. Well done JBrady and the team for an entertaining 2nd half and recovering all our Mojo's and proving the team has still got its will to win or at least try too.

First half was very poor.
 Second half, they couldn't out of their own half.

We could of won that, but I'll take a point.  Cambridge are a very poor side; I can see why they are down there.

We're at 50 points!

Again ELEVEN missing, therefore well done to get to 50 points.

How many points would we have if all season we carried just 2 or 3 injured players?

First half, slow and lethargic - hangover from Tuesday? - Cambridge should have gone into HT 2 up, but perhaps we should have had a pen as well (looked it in real time).

Much, much better second half, more energy, moved the ball quicker, and JB got the subs right, was proactive getting them on fairly early.

Take the point, but really could have had all 3.

3 days until we go again - will be interesting who is fit & available.

Usual anti-Hoskins stuff from you. We were already playing much better before he went off. He maybe could have done better for the first goal but those at fault were the 3 defenders in the centre who failed to pick up a lone striker standing in the middle of the box six yards out for the simplest of finishes. Hoskins has not been at his best since returning from injury, and was rightly subbed, but that's no excuse for making things up.

A forgettable first half, almost like it was a hangover from Tuesday. Too much passing across the back four, inviting mistakes, without a visable intent.
Second half we looked like a different team especially when Louis Appere and Tony Springett came on.
Ben Fox gets better every game and he'll be a great asset when fully 90 minutes fit.
Good goal from Jon Guthrie (I had him at 15-1)
Possibly two points dropped based on the second half performance but was happy walking away with the one especially after the first half.
A few words about Marc Leonard; he's at least a couple of levels above us, we have been very fortunate to witness him for the last two seasons.
I watched The Arsenal last night with Odegaard's performance and the similarities between the effects that Marc has on our team with his. He makes us tick, despite some teams targeting him for a 'bit of treatment '.
We'll miss him but I hope that he fulfils his potential at the highest level.

To my surprise two sides went down from League One in 2014/15 with 50 points so we still need a few points to look very safe.

No team has gone down in the last 10 seasons with 51 points.

Cambridge fan on their forum said that at half time he passed the away dressing room and JB was having a rant saying it was no way near good enough. Certainly had an effect to our second half performance.
