During the counter for the fourth, their number 7 (Paxman) has done well to track back initially, then practically bolts up and let’s Smith tuck the ball in. I think Watto's sublime pass and Smith's speed took him out of the game.

Still quality moves and executions but I don’t think the East Thurrock manager will see it that way. Anyway, we are now 12-11 up on them on aggregate after five games...

Not quite sure what this means for Nick and Marvin in the longer term, well we can't rely on either for a supply of goals and I must admit I thought Jarvis did a lot of running around but to no real effect.
Generally I like the strikers to contribute on the ball but if he's been given a job to do and done it then you can't say fairer than that.

Having watched the game on Romans on Demand, I agree with JG's assessment (Bath Chron) of Jarvis' performance.

First one - yes, there should have been enough defenders about, and credit to Edwards for his probing run and finish, but Higgins' non-attempt of a tackle would have me seething.

Second - brilliant ball and run, but don't understand why he's ran the other side of his keeper. Even if Wright saved it the rebound would have fallen onto Smith's right foot.

It looks like I'm nitpicking which I'm not. We were fantastic, I just wouldn't be happy if we replicated some of that defending.

Junior, I see that you've retired. Have Nomads awarded you a testimonial?
