Yes, Tommy kept us in the game in the first half with two excellent saves (and he came fairly close to saving the penalty in the second half too, dived the right way but just could quite get it). Another very good display from him.

Wally’s goals (his 26th & 27th of the season) were both top draw. The first a powerful header into the top corner and the second a thunderous strike with his left foot that gave the keeper no chance. If I’m not mistaken, his next goal will be his 50th competitive goal for Boro. I think he’s only made about 75-80 appearances for us so that’s a superb goals to appearances rate.

Overall an entertaining game and a very good result because Bamber Bridge are a better side than their league position would suggest (surely too good to be relegated?). Having their manager poached by FCUM mid-season seems to have knocked them and put them on a downward spiral. But they created plenty of chances in the first half and opened up our defence almost with ease. Maybe our defence simply lack the cohesion and confidence that comes with having the same line-up week after week - because that part of the team has been a like revolving door in terms of selection.
