Should win this one, but anything can happen in a cup game.

Are many travelling?

The weather is going to put a lot of people off. The forecast is absolutely shocking.

I'm on the fence myself and it's only a 25 minute drive for me. Big decision for those on public transport. Fair play to anyone who braves the weather.

Can't beat a Free Travel pass. Even treated myself to 1st Class on the way up. Late night if it goes to extratime and/or penalties.

They might let us into the stand if there's not too many of us. I've seen it happen in Oriel in similar circumstances.

Just buy a home ticket if you haven't bought a ticket yet. I've done this lots of times in the past.

Poor enough game which would be expected against a team with eleven men behind the ball and such poor conditions. Most important thing is to be in the hat for the draw for next round.

Durrant looks a decent player. Would be very tempted to start him against Rovers.

Yeah I don't think anything can be taken from that considering it was played in the middle of a hurricane. The conditions definitely suited Bray, turned the game into a complete lottery. I thought the wind was gonna help the ball over Shepperd a few times in the second half. Durrant looks very decent.

We arrived in early and the stewards were reluctant to let us into the home end, we snook in anyway and it was fine. Very very decent travelling support considering the conditions.

Very poor performance, and again some odd selections, surely for the night that was in it Hoban should have started, reminded me almost same conditions second last game of 2014 season. I was at it, Hoban got a late equaliser.

I would have gone for Boyle in the middle instead of Annseley, again the conditions a factor.

As for Malley and the pen miss, his first ever pen I heard, that was Horgan's all day long, again who made that decision.

Most important thing was the result, into the QF, but we are not playing well and that has to be a concern.

I'd agree with U on Boyle Mike. But not sure I'd agree with you about Malley pen. If it is indeed the first one he has missed then it would appear he is a regular enough pen taker so why would you pick Horgan over him? Does Horgan take pens consistently for any of his previous clubs? Equally he is short on match fitness perhaps. Maybe Martin would have been a better shout than Horgan.
We aren't playing well at are very inconsistent all season apart from rising to the challenge a cpl times v Rovers and the hammering of pats.
Regarding Hoban I reckon he is carrying an injury considering the strapping he wore in Europe. That was a gamble that didn't pay off and I imagine we are trying to rest him for the league run in or stronger opposition in the cup.

We've missed 4 of our last 6 penalties, absolutely pathetic stat. Yet a 15 year old had no bother slotting one away today for St pat's.

Surely someone on our squad has the attitude and application to practice set pieces after training with a goalkeeper or one or two other squad.members who have a desire to improve?
