  • Only problem is, you have to have a shot on target to score, we cannot even get lucky rebounds
  • I thought we had done it once this season but Golfie Jnr (who can tell me who scored for us against Stevenage 6 seasons ago) thought we hadn't.

    Just shows that any good manager will tell his team to stop us in the first 20-30 mins & try to nick a goal. I've seen it too many times this season & wonder where we would be if Page's thunderbolt had landed in the North Upper instead of the top corner. I expect we would have carried on with KR's poor run & be like Bradford in 10th or 11th.

    Not always.

    IIRC, in one of our most famous wins in recent history, 4-2 over the Gooners at The Library, we only had three shots on target.

    Three? What a waste of effort. Sometimes you don't even have to have that many shots on target...
