Turning point?

A fabulous result today, in my opinion probably the most important win of the season so far, another bad result and I honestly thought Darren would've lost his job. The home form is something to be impressed about, 6 wins and 5 draws, 23 points earnt at home and unbeaten at home since October, very impressive!

At one point it all started to slip away again, going 1-0 down, seeing the players reactions, I thought here we go again. But, the players showed some bollocks and heart, created 2 really well worked goals to take the lead going into half time and then in the second, we had to dig deep at times, but scored 2 really good goals, great work from Danny and Tom for the goals at the end. Playing that 4-3-3 formation is something we can get away with at home, with 3 attacking players such as Matty, Danny and Kenners on our smaller pitch, they really do put back lines under a lot of pressure and with their speed, strength and skill will create and score goals.

I thought we got caught at the back a few times with something that's been mentioned quite a few times over Christmas, speed. It's a work in progress and I really think Wilko should be back there with Fraser. I thought the middle 3 worked hard all game, had to really battle at times and overall did a really good job IMO. Even Fryer having his best game in a Boro shirt!

A fantastic win, 15th, 33 points and 13 points clear of the drop is a really nice, comfortable position to be in January, credit to the players and really happy for Darren to get that win under his belt too. Hopefully a turning point in our season, where we can turn our away form around and keep this consistent run at home going. Bring on The FA Cup next week, a nice break from the league and with our home form you never know what could happen next weekend! Lovely stuff!!
