It’s great that Alan has mentioned both Joelinton and Almiron in his tweet. Both had much improved performances. Especially Joelinton whose hold -up play was just plain awesome today. Miguel ran all over the place and looked very dangerous on the counter.
Local lad Paul Dummett deserves a special mention after his colossal display. He was absolutely immense at the back. Fabian Schar also had an excellent game as well. The lads really turned up for Steve Bruce and the traveling fans.
Steve Bruce’s set up worked very well as the Tottenham had difficulty breaking us down all afternoon. Well done to Steve Bruce and the entire coaching staff.
