    Really difficult to pick - no one played well.

    Bryson was bright in his cameo, Lawrence looks an improvement on our previous number 10, but none of the starters really deserve it. Johnson was very good for half an hour, but very poor in the second half.

    I'm going to abstain.

    Apart from his one blunder Carson had little to do all match but pulled off 2 brilliant saves towards the end. That free kick leading to their 3rd...... he should have taken it and had a quick player stay back with him. Who decided he should go up front?

    Wisdom was OK but he has to move the ball faster as he keeps getting himself into problems that he also manages to get out of but in doing so takes the momentum out of the attack.

    Keogh had a decent game. Some dodgy defensive headers though.

    Davies. Read Keogh.

    Olsson was probably the best of the defender on the day.

    BJ had a good start but then tailed off.

    Hudds was reasonable but below what we expect from him

    Weimann put himself about, one decent shot.

    Vydra was OK too but he frequently fails to get the ball under control and when he does appears to want to over complicate things. The one break he got, he should have shot from the edge of the area. Is he trying too hard?

    JR put himself about as JR does. Great shot for the goal, shame it was in the wrong end. One shot over at the right end. Lots to like about the lad but too little end product.

    Nugent. Did he play? Not involved really for much of the time. He was getting into the right places but not getting any ball and he did some good chasing down but nothing in the right area. Not his fault IMO.

    Good goal from Bryson.

    Martin was busy and looked more dangerous than Nugent. Probably because we started to put the ball in the box for him.

    Lawrence had one good shot. Got a needless booking and, like Vydra, is trying too hard.

    The international break, and possibly this result, has probably come at the right time for GR. This defeat by a team no better or worse than Derby gives him the opportunity/excuse to change the starting XI and possibly the formation. No reasonable performance or good result to have certain players retain the shirt.

    What will he change? Lawrence in, probably for JR.

    Bryson in for BJ to give us more mobility.

    We also need someone with vision to run things in midfield.

    Sorry, I'd have Lawrence in for Weimann. I know he has genuine pace, but I'm still not sure that he knows what to do with it - or the ball, when he gets it.


    Underwhelmed by him today,  but not surprised.

    And you'd clone Richard Keogh ten times and play them all.

    My suggestion was what I think GR will do. I would leave JR and Weimann out and put Lawro and Bennett in. Brsyon in for BJ for mobility.

    I haven't include GT yet as I think he may be another 4 weeks away from the match day squad.

    Based on his 2 short appearances so far only the most blinkered haters of Ince (like yourself) would make such a statement . I agree he looks good on the ball but apart from 3 or 4 fouls I haven't yet seen him tackle or track back which are the main criticisms of Ince
