Saints played a 4-5-1 system today and in the first half we were under the cosh for long spells after an initial bright start. The second half was better but trailing 2-0 we needed more than we produced. We gave Carlisle a goal through Hardings own goal and then we stood ball watching to allow the deciding goal which in the end proved a goal too much. It would be easy to blame the new system but I feel that today the defence was extremely poor.Jaidi is a man mountain but I feel he is too slow and increase the pressure on the rest of the defence when he plays. Harding had a stinker and hopefully Dickson will now get a run to show what he can do. Seaborne has been doing ok but my preference would be for Aaron Martin to play.

Saints OS called it a 4-3-3 system but several watching could have sworn it was a 4-5-1. Bad result and leaves us needing to improve away but at least we showed some fight in the second half.

It was a long way to go and come back with nothing.

It was and it shouldn't have happened but yet again we started poorly and the defence was missing at times today. Either in concentration or endeavour. Bad day at the office which we nearly turned round. Always next week.
