Barrow finished the first half the brighter and had chances to equalise along with good possession. I'll go out on a limb here and say Barrow were the better of the two teams in the first half. Unfortunately the second half was a complete no-show. We were utterly abysmal and it came as no surprise when Hednesford bagged their third, thanks to woeful defending from Burns. I don't subscribe to the suggestions of the Barrow fans around us that the third knocked the stuffing out of us - there was no stuffing in the first instance to be knocked out. We were powder puff across the park and incapable of making tackles.
Special mention must go to Burns and Williams - two of the most atrocious 'footballers' I have ever witnessed. Meechin and Bowen suggested they had never played football before either when they came on but I will concede there wasn't enough time to put together a totally balanced opinion of them.
I am seriously concerned about this performance and my feeling is this season is going to be one long grind.
