Instead Young and Broadhurst as centre backs, Wade on the right, Cummings on the left and Holmes on the left wing.

The game started and we knew that it was going to be one of those games where we go through the motions and it proved me right when on 21 minutes we gave the ball to Rodgers to place it past Stewart. 1-0. Then only a few half chances up to half time of a very poor half.

At the break Connell came on for Browning. As the second half started, it got worse when we went 2-down. A shot brought a fine save from Stewart, but the ball was whipped back in only to be deflected by Young in to his own net on 46 mins.

Stewart saved well again before it was 3-0. Logan (on 66 mins). We made more chances after Stocks we taken free kick made it 3-1 on 71 mins.

Andrade came on for Rodrigues and Coutts came on for O'Connor. Coutts looked lively and should have started, it was his cross that hit WHitehead to make it 3-2 on 91 mins.

That was how it finished and I found it real hard to do a report as it was a poor game and not one to remember.

I am nominating Coutts as he looked up for it from the word go when he came on. No one else stood out.

AFCB: Stewart, Cummings, Broadhurst, Young, Browning, Stock, Elliott, Hayter, Rodrigues, Holmes
Subs: Scriven, Connell (for Browning, 46), Andrade (for Holmes, 65), Rowe, Coutts (for Rodrigues, 65)
