Excellent 3 points tonight away at Guiseley, not able to go tonight but listened on Guiseley Radio and was impressed by the service, and the commentator indicated that we were clearly the better side. Well done boys, great start but very early days.

Spoiler alert.

We're shite and Stockport are going to absolutely smash us.
Tease.

We didn't deserve anything tonight. I think the writing was on the wall as soon as Duxbury went off injured. Having only having one left back at the club would bite us on the behind at some point this season, but I didn't expect it so soon.

Football can be a very cruel game at times conceding in the 92nd minute, absolutely gutted we didn't take all three points at Spenny tonight. I thought we just did enough after soaking up a lot of pressure from Spenny in the 2nd half.

It was all a bit too quick watching that equalizer hitting the back of the net, I think Jonny's face said it all after the final whistle when he came over to us and shook hands. He had that apologetic look that he probably could have done better? I wouldn't care he didn't have much to do throughout the match.

But the game should have been put to bed in the last five minutes with Nicholson the culprit, clean through blazed his chance over the bar, when really he should have scored that would have been game over.

I wasn't too impressed with the substitutions with Ainge and Styche getting took off. I thought we lost a bit of aerial power, with Ainge helping out on the corners and set pieces.

Trotman was outstanding tonight linking up well with Thommo. Collins was a rock in the heart of the defense, also Wheatley what a great game he had.

Much better performance tonight than the shite served up on Saturday against Curzon.
I'm still adamant we deserved to win tonight. Great atmosphere tonight just couldn't stop singing, fantastic support that was much appreciated from the players at the final whistle.

#Up the Darlo!

You deserved the win. More desire and better organised than us.
Only our management know why we played the same system and personnel as Saturday when it was toothless against Boston.
No width until we were two goals down and all too late just like Saturday. It's just far too easy for the opposition right now.
We should be renamed Hoof & Hope AFC, it's so close to watching last seasons Cox tactics :(

We were dreadful last night, other than a 10 minute spell after we equalised Alty battered us. Our forwards were always about 20 yards apart from each other, the midfield lethargic, and the defence left exposed. You could tell Alty have a side that know their roles and what each other is doing, they'll do just fine this season.

We have got James Berrett on trail in view to sign,played for us in league did ok,don’t think quiet league standard but better than north standard.
Central midfield is one place we need to strengthen.

Looks a decent addition and a very experienced player for this level of football, he's got a decent international career as well for Republic Of Ireland as a youngster.
Should be pretty decent for this league.

Looking at the fixtures it reminds me of when I started watching football in the early 60's -- So many teams were in the old Fourth division.

Saturday's fixtures

Blyth Spartans vs Chester
Brackley Town vs Darlington
Curzon Ashton vs Hereford
FC United Of Manchester vs Boston United
Guiseley vs AFC Telford United
Kidderminster Harriers vs Ashton United
Leamington vs Bradford Park Avenue
Nuneaton Borough vs Chorley
Southport vs Stockport County
Spennymoor Town vs Altrincham
York City vs Alfreton Town

Good chance for Chorley to keep the pressure on the teams below if they can keep the momentum going at Nuneaton. Also Chester should come away with a result up at Blyth.
BPA's game could be tricky at Leamington? Who are also off to a flying start.

I'm looking forward to the long trip down to Brackley. In which should be a tough game for us, I don't think they'll beat us 3-0 like last season's visit. I'm hoping for a decent performance on Saturday after that late equalizer denying us victory on Tuesday night.
The lads should be well up for it against Brackley.

Chester will have issues with defence all season, it is so so slow.

Curzon got behind their defence afew times earlier in week but were so ineffective and poor going forward it led to nothing........better sides will take advantage of it.

Although they did look clinical going forward

Looking like an unlucky defeat for us today, but our sheer lack of goals is putting us in dire trouble even this early.

Good news for us is Niall Cummins is back, but may take afew games to settle in.

Stockport Going For It County Football Club
County pick up a 1-0 win at Southport. Would've happily taken three points from these last two games, so looks like a job well done. Can only go off what they said on the radio, apparently County were well on top first half, but Southport had the better of it second half despite being down to 10 men. Match marred by a bit of bother off the pitch though

Good win again and now we are the only team with a 100 percent record. Loads of goals flying in everywhere today. Obviously some went in at Blyth!
