Overall largely terrible.

On that Davis should've started over Kodjia as we created some good chances when he was our focal point.

Every time we approach away games like this I just don't see how we can finish top 2.

The few times we seemed interested in attacking we caused them no end of problems. If only we had a manager that didn't seem terrified of losing.

Much better in the last few minutes... if only we had started with two up front. It's a good point if we can beat Preston. Otherwise, not so much.

I hate having Bruce as manager, you know. Even when we win it's hard to build up much optimism or to look forward to us playing again.

Well as expected it was lacking in quality, not much football to be honest lots of long balls. Good substitutions by Bruce but we need to put in a better performance against Preston.

SB is gripped by fear in these games I'm afraid. It will be the same when we play Leeds away in a few weeks.

Imagine him managing us in the premier league....I'd rather not.

Started well and finished well. The middle 30 mins we were awful. Bruce got the subs spot on. Looked better when Mile and Keinan came on
