I think the point about Accy parking the bus in the second half is valid after they scored due to our poor defence, this time Jack was too slow to get the tackle in. However we were not clever or brave enough to break them down we definitely need a target man whether Harrison is the right player to carry out this role is debatable? I think we did try a Harrison/ Marques combo which the Cowleys may try again as I dont think we will give Marquis away as Danny boy seems to like him. There is no doubt our centre backs need sorting out as they have been the weak link this season, and looked vunerable.
Naylor is supposed to give us extra cover at the back which he has failed to do which combined with his poor passing and lack of good captaincy is a big negative. Overall though i think our problem was too many players blew hot and cold Harness was a good example, Curtis is too emotional and temperamental, and none of the forwards including and especially Marquis could'nt control the first time ball.
Raggett has shown time and again that he needs a stable partner to be able to perform at his highest. The fact that he has variously shared the duties with JW, Rasmus and (I think briefly) Paul Downing, shows that he hasn't had that stability.
Jack, I think, has been poor these last few weeks, and needs to get his head sorted. Two straight reds since Christmas (I believe I'm right in saying that) is not acceptable at any level.
Rasmus Nicolaisen has been a major disappointment, something I've been saying since I first saw him. It's no wonder he wasn't even on the bench on Sunday.
Paul Downing, on the other hand, seems rejuvenated under the Cowleys. I thought he was desparately unlucky to be subbed, though I understand the "what" and the "why" about it. It'll be interesting to see how he performs next season.
