MOM

He had a good 2nd half, most of the rest were 6 out of 10s.
Virtue maybe scraped a 7. Not a fluid team performance but we stuck it out and got a good point.
I think partly because Crewe were really up for it tonight and made it difficult. It was still a great effort tonight.

I thought Ward had a good second half. I really don't like him playing out wide and when he moved more central he was better. Finished strongly.
Despite those that thought Virtue was blowing again I thought he finished strong as well.
But I'm going to give Ballard my vote for MOM.

Garbutt or Ward for me. Thought Stewart was the best of the rest.
I thought Stewart had his worst game so far. Everything seemed to go through Garbutt, and I'm a big fan, but I thought his passing was below parr and he struggled to get forward (Crewe did a job on our entire back line who were below parr most of the game) IMO!

Virtue for me, does the niggly stuff well, and for a period in the second half he was noticeable everywhere getting at Crewe and stopping them from getting on top. Garbutt also did well, some good crosses and corners. One peach of a cross in the first half that was exactly where you'd place it, but no one read it.

He was doing the job of two men first half (Stewart). Intercepted on numerous occasions, he lost the ball a few times but I’d be more inclined to put that down to lack of a forward pass / Crewe’s impressive pressing. Without Stewart in there last night we wouldn’t have come away with a point.

Virtue had a good second half but a poor first half. Ballard and Garbutt had good games. Stewart and Ward. Not a lot between those. None of our players looked in control cos Crewe made life hard for us all over the pitch. Garbutt or Ballard I think.

I was surprised Artell called it an even game and a fair result really, most managers would have claimed superiority. Good manager on the evidence of last night. Working on a smaller budget than us.
