From the jaws of defeat snatched a point. Berry get the headlines and rightfully so, have always been a huge fan of his, but thought Lansbury made a huge difference too. Looked so much better with him in the midfield.

KDH who? We've got Luke Berry!

Luton were dead in that game. Totally gone. They looked miles away.

And then Mowbray got his team to perform the dark arts all second half and got caught out for it.

Has to be said one of the worst refereeing displays you are ever likely to see. Part of me thinks the shenanigans at the end with the injury and replacement of him was a bit of embarrassment from him at how far he had lost control of the game, although thats perhaps a bit mean spirited on my behalf.

I wondered if he was the name of one if the refs who's been slated - esp in the other board. Was very poor. Lost the game right from the Lenaghann challenge

The refereeing performance sums up the whole season officiating wise. Early days, but worse than our first two seasons at this level. As I mentioned before, losing their best 3-4 referees just to hold a board up or be the VAR has killed the Championship. And PL refs are being less and less used outside that division too.

I see Gillet was the VAR for the early kick off today, was one of the better refs i thought at this level last season i felt so it does feel a waste. I guess they feel they need all the help they can get with the Premier League games because they cannot really have another season of screwing up their VAR implementation.

Leaves us lot down here screwed with the dross as usual though.

Gillet should really be one of the refs in Qatar, but won’t be because he isn’t working for the Aussie league any more. It’s a waste of time losing good refs as fourth officials.

Solid point for us and a clean sheet sounds like it could have gone either way.

Maguire hit the bar for us, really want him to bag, his recent performances deserve a goal.

We look so much better with Bauer back.

I am sure SF_ wont be too pleased about it, but great result for Blackpool winning 1-0 at home to Fulham. Thats a real acca busting result.

Our great start to the season continues with a good home with vs Boro today. 9/9 at home and 12/18 overall, very happy with that. Viktor Gyokeres has been unbelievably good.

Wouldn't be surprised if Hughton goes tonight.

They look awful despite having some very good players on their books, as soon as Cardiff equalised you knew they would go on to win.

Yep looks like Forrest going backward under him at the moment. Got to say though they’ve had so many managers cycle through there and never really got anywhere, have to think there are more fundamental issues there than the manager

I think they have had even more managers than us in recent times but never able to come close to promotion.

Sheff Utd tomorrow, typical we play them after smashing 6 past someone, they'll be buzzing.

Up against Ben Davies, hopefully Riis can really go at him physically because we know that's where his downfall is.

Not sure if we'll see any changes unless there is a fitness problem, McCann and Murphy might have to wait a while longer yet.

Iversen
Storey, Bauer, Hughes
VDB - Ledson - Whiteman - Earl
DJ
Riis, Maguire

Rudd, Cunningham, Lindsay, Browne, McCann, Sinclair, Murphy​

Same team.

Their bench cost about £60m. McBurnie, Brewster, Berge, Bogle...

Nathan Jones is really pissed off based on his pre match interview. For one the amount of injuries and illnesses mounting up constantly since the last pre season friendly but also the number of decisions going against us in games - literally reeling them off the top of his head:

-Peterborough non red card for DOGSO
-The Sam Johnstone non red card on Clark.
-Two big moments on Saturday.
-The Sheffield Utd game.

I really want to defend the refs, but this season so far it has been massively worse than the last two years.

That was a really entertaining half.

Fuming at the goal we gave away but suppose their defender and keeper didn't cover themselves in glory for ours. Great ball and control though.

We've got it spot on, tactically, playing really wide and direct, releasing it as soon as possible. Could see them trying to match us up at half time.

Josh Earl in particular has been superb.

They've got obvious quality though, some great passing at times. Could go either way this.

95th minute equaliser, lost my shit, would have been so cruel had we lost that.

An even, entertaining game, both missed good chances.

We're playing well at the moment, 6th of the season for Riis, nice composure for that one.

That N'Diaye is class for Sheff Utd by the way, as is Morga-Gibbs on loan from Wolves.

£20m Berge coming off the bench looked exactly that too.

I'd be amazed if Sheff Utd aren't top six.

Another day, another player down in the warm up. Sonny Bradley unserviceable again, probably a result of no preseason. We really are having no luck so far this season.

We’ve had glorious chances - hit the woodwork twice, whilst Dan Bentley has made 3 massive saves.

Bagged again, how much was he?

Without wishing to get too “woe is us” and feeling sorry for ourselves but this season we really haven’t got our fair share of luck so far.

Can’t believe we are going to lose this game tonight and the injuries just continue to pile up. Getting silly now. Beginning to worry it’s just not going to be our season and we could be in some unexpected bother, just not getting the rub of the green you need.

Wow Danny Hylton breaking his goal duck. Wonders will never cease and pigs may indeed be able to fly.

Delighted for him personally and no more than is deserved from our point of view.
