Smith 3 - shocking Partington 2 - shocking Kelly 4 - not quite as shocking Craig - 5 ok apart from a crucial 2 minutes Clarke J - 5 as,above Upson 6 - Best of a shocking bunch Sercs 5.5 - ok Bennett 4 - shocking Rodman 4 - shocking Nichols 3 - shocking Clarke O 3 - shocking
Smith 5 shaky ,distribution poor, one shocking attempt to punch clear.
Partington 6 decent, surprised he was subbed for the below par Leadbitter J. Clarke 5.5 adequate Craig 5.5 ok for the first 70 minutes,all at sea after. Kelly 5 struggled.
Bennett 5.5 should have scored early of,saw plenty of the ball,but little end product. O. Clarke 6 worked hard, Upson 4 error strewn performance Sercombe 7,the only player worth his wages this week . Rodman 6 ok. at least he tried. let down by lack of support
Nichols 6 lets hope the goal removes the monkey off his back,
Crowd Rightfully Miserable, other than the jokes at our own expensive "Nichols he scores when he wants!" Funny but it really shouldn't be. Ref 6 other than the Penalty in the first half thought he was decent. Barnet 4 should of beaten them 5 or 6 nil, but they were a lot more clinical when given chances.

My own opinions of the game, results to follow shortly.
Smith 5 One good throw in the first half. When he was put under any serious pressure, we conceded twice
Partington 5 Okay, but dawdled in possession of the ball at times. J. Clarke 5 Not sure where he really was for either goal Craig 5 Kelly 5.5 Couple of moments when his youthful indecision showed. Put a good ball across the box in the first half
Bennett 4 As ever his first couple of touches were good but then he overplayed it and the moment went. Assissted the goal but the Barnet defence did part in front of him O. Clarke 6 Tried to force the game forward instead of the safe sideways passes that others were trying Upson 3.5 First half would be a 7, but he completely lost all ability in the second. Sercombe 4 Along with Upson be has to take a lot of the blame over why we were overrun and lost control of the game. On this showing he's not capable of playing in a midfield two Rodman 5 Some promising moments when he looked to come inside but he hid for the last 20 minutes to the extent that I genuinely forgot he was playing
Nichols 6.5 Got his goal but his alround play was decent
Subs: Leadbitter 4.5 His arrival gave us a shot of energy and an outlet on the right. Hard to say that he specifically contributed much though. Could have won it late on Payne 2 Offered nothing Lockyer 5 Not on that long but at least jumped for a header
Crowd 3 Ref 4 I didn't have a great view of the penalty shout and thought he was otherwise average Barnet 6 Once they realised we weren't up to much they harried us well and took their chances
