No bookings either SB. Good from our point of view, especially with Wilson 1 yellow away from a 2-match ban. Let's hope he doesn't get too carried away that he's unavailable for the Gooners game - though that will be rescheduled if we beat Fulham on Wednesday week.
Bassong worries me though - yes, he's getting more settled at CB but he will insist on holding on to the player he's marking, especially in the box. Didn't do it so much today but in the last couple of games he would have given away 2/3 penalties.
Not sure what it is that makes Pavy play so inconsistently - he could have had a hatful by half time if his finishing had been more clinical but you've got to hand it to him with his scoring rate recently - 8 in 6 games. Would that he could have done that from the start when we bought him. I hope 'Arry continues to give him a chance in the starting line up. Somehow I don't think he'll be going anywhere come the end of the season. He and Defore clearly like each other too which I feel is a good thing in a strike pairing.
All in all not as fluent a performance as we've had in the past but 3pts is 3pts and keeps us in 4th. Now, if Fulham and Pompey can do the business and beat Citeh and the Scousers this weekend we'll breathe a little easier :-)
