We passed the ball and cut through them easily for the first 15, but then they scored and we resorted to hoofing the ball forward hopelessly for the rest of the half.
We used the ball with more purpose in the 2nd half, and deserved our equaliser. We kept playing well after that, but were caught on the break and resorted to hoofball again, without success. Sheahan nearly broke the crossbar with a shot late on, but they made it 3-1 just after.
Very disappointing performance - when a team presses the midfield and closes up the space, we seem to have no idea whatsoever of how to break them down and just thump long balls for Behan. Even if he wins them, there's no support there because our central midfielders Gamble and Bradley both prefer to play deeper.
