He's on the bench so assume he has a knock somehow. If we weren't sure about needing extra fire power today has just proved it.
Similar with us and Harrison, he’s had a knock but in training all week and still not playing amid transfer rumours!

Stronger team today. Sol Brynn is back in goal and we’ve got enough bodies to drop our most underperforming senior players (Beckles, Moncur & Piggott). We’ll still lose.

We look so shaky. Need to get through this spell and this game. We look drained of confidence after Wigan game. 2 weeks ago we looked incredible. Amazing what 1 game can do.

9 attempts to Cheltenham's 1 so far and 65% of the ball. Have to score when on top as Cheltenham haven’t scored in over 8 hours so they’ll definitely notch one today with the Cobblers in town….

Much the better side but going in level. Expect Cheltenham to step it up second half.

Absolutely slaughtered Cambridge in that first half. Only 1-0 so we’ll no doubt feck it up.

Cheltenham have been terrible first half, zero goal threat and its clear their players are low on confidence as so many misplaced backwards sideways and backwards. Cobblers need to be more incisive as this game is there for us to take all 3 points for sure. Would like to see Simpson on early ish in the second half, need a chance to fall to Hoskins.

Stunned by that. Absolutely dominated. I think the Reading fans would have booed the team off if they hadn't equalised there

The Gas all over us for the first 20 mins and we were reduced to pure defence.

But then ex-Brizl City defender Joe Low scored for us from a corner, and did the "sssshh..." thing to the home fans, which obviously went down very well...cue a booking.

Since then, BRFC continue to have the better chances, and we continue to stick men behind the ball.

We're certainly playing negative counter-attacking football, but sometimes that's the right tactic. Tiring to keep that up for 90 mins though.

For a self-proclaimed footballing purist, Joey Barton's men sure are whacking a lot of long balls up front, but hey ho, hypocrisy is one of the greatest human qualities.

20 minutes we looked excellent but still lacking that striker we need. Some of our forward play was decent, big penalty shout which would like to see again.

Got a bit sloppy after that but it’s been an enjoyable game, Carlisle have given us some problems as well. With the balls we’ve managed to get into the box from wide cut backs you’d hope one will drop for us but this is as expected as tough as any of the games so far.

Need to be on it. Chislett is getting absolutely battered which the referee needs to get a grip on, he’s made some inconsistent decisions which seem to causing us frustration.

I thought first 15 minutes or so the way we started we could blow Carlisle away but didn’t score and since then fair play to them they’ve grown into the game. Decent watch though.

After a high intense start we seem to have been a bit too casual at times.

Fleetwood were much slightly the better team until Dan Udoh countered their corner and slotted into the bottom corner. Within 50/60 seconds of play restarting from us scoring, we put a long ball over the top which Bowman rounded the Fleetwood keeper who took Bowman down and got a red card. Worryingly Shipley went off injured in the first 10 minutes, didn’t look good. Would love to See Mata and/or Phillips second half. Surely we shouldn’t throw this away from here!

Santos off injured. Forrester on. Inside less than a minute Forrester doesn’t clear cross and they have a tap in.

1-0 thanks to Carlisle conceding one of the dumbest penalties have ever seen given away.

Get in Dion. Poor defending by Burton but conceding that goal seems to have given us a kick up the backside

2-zip. Fully deserved - we’ve absolutely had our way with Cambridge all game. 6’5” CB Dan Happe just tried a bicycle kick from a corner.

We have been utterly dreadful - no idea how this performance has appeared given how the first four games went…
Orient good value for the three points.

Unbelievable. The ref in our game has gone off injured..... again. That's 4 injured officials across our last 3 games. Two refs and two linos. We're under some sort of curse

Another shocker for Charlton, all over the place. 2-1 flattered us. 4 losses on the spin, relegation candidates?

Phew! Made that harder than it needed to be second half. Terrible keeper error to give us the lead after mis controlling a back pass and taking out Chissy. Big James Wilson again! Purring away nicely

Get the fuck in. 3 games in a row we’ve scored at the death, from looking dead on our feet at the end of the first 2 games to now be a team that is stepping it up towards the end of games is a cracking turn around.

Cheltenham abject apart from 15 minutes in the second half and Sam Hoskins nicked a deserved winner. 3 in 5 now for L2 player of the season, answering a few questions about whether he could step up.

Sickening. Wycombe spent about 60 minutes of that game on the floor, there was the most blatant foul which allowed them to break and score, and we were denied a stonewall pen late on.

Not that we deserved to win. For all our tippy tappy crap, we would rather walk it into the goal than actually shoot. It's pathetic.

Good away win against a solid Fleetwood team that will get better as the season progresses, not many teams will pick up all 3 points at Highbury that’s for sure.

Fleetwood had another red card in the injury time but overall after getting their keeper sent off and with us a goal up it was only likely to be one outcome. Hopefully this is the start of Udoh banging in goals now that he’s up and running.

Onto Carlisle next Saturday!

Very good three points that. Think Carlisle looked as have seen their fans on here describe more than competitive but no cutting edge. In all honesty after we scored I don’t think it felt we were in any sustained danger and in fact felt we might have scored again. All the best though, you reminded me of us last season (competitive but just keep getting punished).
