Both keepers keeping their teams in this.

Meslier has been outstanding.

Good half which we edged for me. Klich top quality again both going forward and in defence. Costa also having a good one. Ayling has given the ball away two/three times in defence that lead to the better SU chances but has looked good around their box. Melier probably our MOTM up to now with Klich and Costa close behind.

Think Kalvin and Paddy were off their games a bit first half
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood look like somebody ordered the same rock star in two different colours.

Reasonably comfortable half if slightly annoying.
Their two chances came from us initially losing the ball or mis-passing.
We are slightly off it in the final third.

This is like being back in the Championship though. The Blunts may be in trouble if we win this one, these negative tactics won't save them without Henderson or better attackers.

There seems to be a predilection among referees to allow teams in possession to complete their possession in stoppage time no matter how far over the allotted time it runs.

The ref gave Sheffield nearly a full minute of time above and beyond the minute of extra time.

Yes, I understand the minute posted was the minimum the ref should award, but this was far from the most egregious example I've seen.

Couldn't help but notice that though the Blunts were exploiting the space left behind by Ayling, the major danger came from Cooper's area.

The game seems to be bypassing Roberts.
He needs to be more aware what’s going on, especially when one of their CB’s make that now famous forward run.

I agree and would like to see Rodrigo on to start the second half.

I think we need something like the rugby league sin-bin for professional fouls. Yellow card is not enough of a punishment.
