    Enjoyed the game this aft, first 10 mins apart I thought we did well.
    We were wobbly in the middle at the back in the first half, Fox made it more solid.
    Good to see use of some of the young lads in the second half and also great for Geldhart to get his goal.
    Thought lopes looked great as wing back at the start of the second half.
    Not a clue what the starting line up will be next week!
    Like the new kit and there are some nice new things in the shop.
    Pre season means not a lot but I enjoyed the afternoon
    Need a striker (obvious I know), Garner not good enough, Lang didn’t show in the time he had on the pitch.

    Garner is good enough but not for our system. Change the system and he would be good for 15 goals.

    I sort of agree with that. When we brought Gelhart and Lang on the Burnley central defenders afternoon became a little tricky for them and they started to panic a little bit. Perhaps Cook needs to think about that, the shape at the start of the second half seemed like a 3-5-2, which easily became a 4-4-2 or even a 5-3-2 when Burnley exerted a little pressure. But having had a really comfortable first half against the lone threat of Garner, I thought they looked a little questionable against two young upstarts who were harrying them!

    I also thought that for the brief spell that Cook used da Silva Lopes as a wing back he looked like he could be a handful too!
