Good performance today especially after conceding a sloppy goal in the first 5 minutes. Only missed chances and some good saves from their keeper stopped us getting what we deserved. I think Carlton will be very happy to go home with a point.
Agree 100%. We all feared the worst after that early goal but Carlton only looked like league leaders for 20 minutes. From that point GNE dominated the game - especially in the second half where Carlton hardly troubled us until added time. Especially pleasing was the quality of the football we played in what were less than ideal conditions. We kept the ball on the floor and switched play with confidence. Ahmadi's finish to Lee Wilcox's cross was a super goal. That's three unbeaten in the league. It was also good to feel some of the old atmosphere in the Trenches in the second half. The crowd was 171 - admittedly on a bad weather day, but we really need to get the crowds up if we are to keep this team together -Chesterfield on Wednesday next and then two more home games in November - let's spread the word and get the crowds back to support this young team.
A very impressive display today. We started a bit slow, and, like others, feared the worst when they scored, and hit the post. But once we settled we looked composed on the ball and caused the league leaders more problems than they caused us.
We kept our composure well, despite their attempts to bully us, and the referee offering little protection.
Only their keeper prevented us from taking all 3 points, and I notice we are the first team to take points off them away from home.
But most of all the game was thoroughly entertaining.
