Tighter than a nun’s chuff in E10 as expected. Looked like we would head into HT ahead via a cross that went all the way in, but Leonard equalised with another of his trademark quality strikes from distance. Classic ‘next goal wins’ stuff, I reckon.

Deservedly leading against Blackpool. Ref doing his best to get them back into it this half.

I’ve lost count of the number of times we have given the ball away in our own half with a sloppy pass and we’ve been cut open. On another night Wycombe could have scored at least 3/4 tonight

Keena misses a penalty to make it 2. The bloke is simply cursed, cannot buy a goal. Not a bad penalty either, just a good save.

Rode our luck tonight. If we don’t improve in the next week or 2 I think we will be finishing 3rd. Pompey and Derby don’t seem to be dropping many points

Nice little boost for us with Reading and Shrews being pegged back in stoppage time. Just seen that Fleetwood goal on SSN and that was proper stereotypical lower league football.

Professional performance from Bolton, their fans on here don't seem happy and for sure we were the better team in the first half, but we didn't take our chances, and they did, so...

Cruel at the death that. We deserved all three points, played really well tonight and could easily have been two goals up on multiple occasions. Would have taken a point before hand but that’s just frustrating how it’s happened.

Onto Wigan at the weekend.

Late penalty for Barnsley but no complaints. Definitely rode our luck throughout the game. Another point gained hut could have done with all 3 just to keep the gap to the bottom 4. Could do with beating Wigan Saturday

Couple of big goals there for us, especially with 3 games in hand on Shrewsbury and Charlton.

That said we have to start winning and the Cheltenham result adds pressure for Saturday, it’s a must not lose game that but really need a win to get going again.

Seriously!? Don’t think I’d have said we rode our luck. Yeah Marosi made some good saves, so did their keeper. We won’t go down so don’t worry too much.

We were poor tonight. We started well, long range shots from Mandriou and head from Draper, and may have led earlier. Great finish from Hackett and very comfortable rest of.first half.

Fair play to Charlton, much more intensity 2nd half, didn't create many chances but Ladapo scored after being on the pitch. Wasn't the best game to watch at all. Forgot Mandriou hit the post from a free kick too.

A good point, pleased we didn't lose, but not sure what went wrong tonight. We seemed frightened 2nd half, couldn't get on the ball, maybe lack of options on the bench/ midfield. At least we didn't lose.

No complaints on the result, nice finish for the 3rd, just happy we finished with 11 men with that card happy ref. We did alright first half, but quality eventually told and score line was about right. Getting dragged back into the relegation scrap again. Must win at Carlisle on Sat, but not at all confident.

Two wins and two clean sheets in a row. Port Vale at home on Saturday is huge. We'll win if we play like we did tonight, no doubt, but we're just as likely to shit the bed a la Wycombe last week.

We are better than that, not playing with a settled team is hampering us. The sooner Santos is back the better.
Bodvarrson quality again. Think Charles goal should have stood looked a yard onside added to him now being injured was not a good night for him.
Liked potts for Wycombe tonight looks quality

Blackpool is a funny one, on the road they are absolutely dreadful (but the opposite at home). We beat them 3-0 the other week with 2 debutant 16 year old youth players at left and right wing back. CJ Hamilton used to be quality but seems to have gone right off the boil.

Sets up a huge game Saturday hopefully we get the new manager bounce! Charlton at Bolton so a decent chance for the winner to lift themselves out the bottom 4.

Well as the cliche goes, you’re doing all right if you can play crap by your standards and still win.

Your passing was more intelligent than most teams at the level - didn’t always come off of course but your players were reading the game, anticipating and picking their passes - you still get plenty of players at this level who barely even look up when they’re trying to play the ball.

Potts is quality, yeah, but we’d better not get too used to him.

Typical Prem loan strategy is, if the kid’s done all right down in the dungeon leagues, get them into the Championship next time round, then maybe give them a shot at the first team if they can handle it in the second tier.

We were there for the taking tonight. We probably got away with it given favourable opponents.

Wigan are very poor (though in fairness, for much of the game we weren’t much better). Wigan just managed to shade it in terms of how bad a side they were on the night.

The game far from deserved six goals with the first half as tedious a watch as you’ll find in League One, not helped all night by a strange refereeing performance.

In the end the introduced of Tyler Goodrham changed the game for us, scoring one and creating another.

A much needed three points… How we are still in the play-off hunt following recent form is bonkers!

Glad to jinx it slightly. A much better second half from us, although that isn’t saying much. Not sure if it was an off day for Lincoln but they didn’t look great. After we scored, I was surprised to see them settle for the draw given how weak we’ve been at the back.

Lincoln easily nullified our wingbacks getting forward so we resulted to lumps up the pitch. Unlike May, Aneke was able to win some of these and this helped us finally get going.

Being positive, I thought for the first time in a while we were probably the better side and the defence was better organised than it has been. Camara and Aneke returning to the pitch could be key for us in our fight to stay up.

Still think we will go down. No league wins in 14. Bolton, Pompey and Derby next …

We've had quite a few games like tonight's where we look less than impressive first half, only to come alive and win the game.

Cambridge were unlucky to go in just level at half time. We really upped the pressure second half though and the game was done after Kamara's superb third.

Sad to see Lowery limp off again. He's been excellent replacing Morrell after his season-ending injury, but he's made of glass sadly. Fully expecting yet another long term absentee. We just don't do short term injuries this season.

The last 15mins of that game was probably expected given that both teams have players out injured and in our case we've just played too many games and its all caught up with us. Dan Happe is a big loss at the back for us, Cooper needs to get up to speed quickly otherwise we will be letting in more than we usually do.

The last 15mins of that neither side could defend, we looked mentally drained each time we took the lead in the second half and let Northampton back in - Although they did commit bodies forward and take their chances quite well - only 3 shots on target and 3 goals.

I thought we just about deserved the win, we looked the more dangerous throughout and had more of the ball and Northampton each time they equalised sat back - Having said that Pinnock missed his 1v1 to make it 4-3 for Northampton and its totally different outcome. El-Mizouni nearly scored a wonder goal as well shortly before our winner.

I'd have accepted the point as in the end we didn't defend well enough (neither side did) and mentally we looked drained, but had one final push in stoppage time to snatch the winner.

Well beaten in the end, Derby were faster and more clinical. Mendez-Laing was superb in the second half.
Not being too harsh, just one of those evenings

That’s a fair summary I think. Defended really poorly and got punished, don’t think we deserved anything really. Good game and great atmosphere from both sets of fans I thought.

Priceless last minute of extra time equaliser by our Captain, and no more than we deserved. Fleetwood took the game to Reading from the kick off and we're really up for it. Got to say Reading defended well and clearly they are a good side playing nice football. Almost against the run of play they scored a top quality goal in the 2nd half, but undaunted Fleetwood still went searching for that equaliser and were well rewarded. Excellent away support from the visitors on a mild Winters night.
A look at the league table makes grim reading but the team have got their mojo and are still fighting hard

Called off at 645. Back home I go.

What a fucking joke. It’s been raining all day for fucks sake. What is wrong with us ? Why not call it off earlier ?
Feel so sorry for the travelling fans, absolute shambles from us. Our pitch is a disgrace. Give Carlisle the 3 points - we fucked this up royally.

I didn't go down but I'm a little delighted we didn't have to play tonight because our form is terrible and we have injuries to key players.

However, it is a joke how a pitch at this level can be that bad and for it to be called off that late for our fans when it was already known to be in a terrible state.
