Amazingly this was against Southend on Oct 8th 2016! Yesterday was his 1st home league start since then - over 1000 days later! Crazy that he's not had a chance since then as I've been impressed with him whenever I've seen him play - his passing and positive play yesterday was superb. Definitely a prospect and a huge talent if he gets games.
2-2, Pitman breaks clear and squares the ball to his team mate... Only he's managed to get ahead of Pitman and flagged offside. Peterborough go down the other end and win 3-2. Fine margins between winning and losing. Portsmouth now have the lottery of the play offs and Barnsley and Luton go up automatic.
He's played in the Champions League, he's played at a World Cup - but Trent Alexander-Arnold is having an absolute shocker against former Rochdale winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing!
NML skins TAA once again down the Cardiff wing, he induces a wild challenge and just hops over the prone England full-back. He stands up a neat cross and Virgil van Dijk has to come to the rescue on this occasion. Nervy times for Liverpool!
They must have played a weaker team at Sunderland last night (bit strange with it being the Qtr final). Some of their stars against us involved tonight : Sandler,Poveda start. Nmecha,Bolton and Grimshaw on the bench.
Meaning a win leapfrogs us over 4 teams including our opponents. 33 points and 13th place in league 1. However we do it - a win today is massive. Hope Lillis starts, Raff is back, hopefully even Clough on the bench! I can't make today as we are at a family 18th birthday - hopefully a good omen as the last league game I missed was the Accrington win which looked even less likely than a win today - with Burton playing the cup semi final v City on Wednesday hopefully a few of their players are less committed today - every little helps. Up the Dale. 3 points and a happy forum tonight.
