Well, it's obvious that Warburton had been reading my tweets and started coaching the defence! Or maybe not, but that must be the best performance by our defenders for a long time. Three cheers for Lumley, Hall & Leistner, with Hall the stand-out for one superb tackle in his penalty area. But what impressed me early on was Kane's terrier-like challenges. He's looked good going forward in previous matches (ignoring WBA) but he was a proper right back here. Not quite the death of playing out from the back, but at last wiseing up to when the boot into touch or downfield is the safest option.
In spite of another great game from Eze and his two goals the Man of the Match for me was Bright Osayi-Samuel. His positioning was excellent, he worked hard to close down his opposite number and scared the wits out of the PNE defence when he ran at them. Sensible, strong, if more defensive game from Rs.

Justified praise for Eze but BOS was superb, surely his best game for us. Also a word of praise for BFG just doing what he's good at, nothing fancy, no 50 yard cross field passes to Manning, just big brave and strong.
Yes, Lumley has had a few slightly dodgy games but he put in a strong, confident and safe performance and that save was simply superb and will do wonders for his confidence.
A well deserved win and a top class all round team performance.
Great to come away from the ground with a smile on my face.

Eze, BOS and Lumley rightly got praise following the game but I'd like also big up both Manning and Kane, both of whom came in for some stick on here after the Forest game. Yes both didn't perform as well as they could do versus Forest , they know it, we know it. But they got on with their game against PNE and I thought were solid in everything they did, both defending and bombing forward assisting the midfield/forward line. Following the Forest game I wrote on the forum that with Kane there was a good player in there somewhere, we just need to find it. We found it big time on Saturday. And as Clive wrote in his programme column there is a current trend development online 'to be as over the top provocative and mean as you can'.
