Couldn't agree more with your match report, the 2nd half back four was terrible, constantly pulled out of position. Davies and Wisdom dealt with the directness of the Mansfield attack but Keogh and Pearce seem to struggle also Mansfield added pace in the second half which had Bogle caught out a few times.
Byson looked superb even in a friendly he but some hard tackle in. I did think Butterfield did ok, maybe not enough to show for 1st team place. Thorne was very poor, I just hope this is because it's his first game in 3/4 months but he couldn't make a pass, got knocked off the ball. The trouble was our build up was too slow, it gave Mansfield time to put two banks of four to defend. Nuge missed a absolute sitting after we did manage to hit mansfield quickly. I just wished some of the players took a few pop shots at goal especially when their cut inside onto their prefered foot from the wing, after all this how we scored a pop shot saved by the keeper and we followed it up.
