4th chance goes begging, delaying shooting again then ignored McAnuff wide open waiting for the pass at the back post. Eventual shot by Harrold saved by keeper.

Halifax wide open at the moment but our finishing is shockingly bad.

Correct 0-2, can't defend high ball and Grainger is poor at coming for them. Looks like game over and only ourselves to blame.

Professional players should be finishing two open goal chances, that's the simple story of tonight thus far.

Funny thing is we played decent football but we seem to be lacking at both ends tonight when it counts. Stand in defence is getting roasted.

Should be 0-3, need to get to HT at 0-2 or perish the thought get a goal back or this could be a hiding.

Bonne put through, weak finish easily saved.

It's disappointing to be behind by two goals so early in the match. Any sign this year's team has a fighting spirit?

Grainger does something right and makes a very smart save to keep us in it, from yet another header.

Jobi hits the bar from a beautiful curled effort from about 25 yards :o

Never see somebody be out of position as much as Boco this half

HT at one of the most crazy, frantic 45 minutes of football I've seen in a long time. Anyone who's played FIFA will know the kind of game I mean where defence is non existent, the game goes end to end and it could easily be 5-5, 4-6 or any combination of which.

Two missed open goals, numerous chances where we're so slow in the box it's painful to watch mean we end up 2 down when we could've easily be 4 in front despite the early goal conceded.

Halifax are nothing special at all, how they've kept clean sheets until now is beyond me as we've opened them up with ease only to contrive to miss in ways only FIFA knows how.

In the air at the back we're all over the place, keeper again looks fragile but did make a vital save at 0-2 to keep it competitive at least

Halifax could've easily scored two more after 0-2 as we went to pieces at the back but put shots wide. Jobi then hits a beauty that should be getting GOTM but instead whacks the bar.

Boco needs to come off at HT, looks physically and mentally shattered after missing that open goal and can't make it back up the pitch to do his defensive cover.

Just shows how ridiculous this league is right now, any kind of quality in the box and we'd be coasting this game.

Good entertainment for the neutral but tactical purists would be tearing their hair out at soon of the ineptitude in that half.

Said it since start of the season, neither youth keeper is developed enough or good enough right now to get us out of this league.

Perhaps the deep playing Mooney provides a deal of defensive protection which we're missing tonight.
