The back four continues to be a cause for concern. Antonio was not the only play guilty of pussy footing around or lingering on the ball. There were enough warning signs prior to the half where we tried to play pitter patter football out from the back and lost the ball in dangerous positions, such as hen Noble dallied and had the ball stripped away.
Time and time again we tried to be too cute instead simply clearing it away. I know that it is unpopular, but there are times which just cry out for the defence to put the laces through the bloody ball.
The penalty whose thoroughly unavoidable as was the winner, albeit to a lesser extent. Why o' why did Ginge stand off so much!?! He basically invited Costa (who may consider himself fortunate to still be on the park) to pick his spot FFS!
