I won’t go into any detail on the multitude of trialists involved, but the scorer of the third goal, Scott Mc Lean (a Scottish winger who has played for Kilmarnock, Troon and Albion Rovers), played a couple of games for our Under 23s back in February and did quite well, while Ryan Price (no info on him I’m afraid) provided the assists for both second half goals.
No one describes 2012/13 as a vintage year for the Championship, but which one was the “strong” league, the one we won or the one with the all conquering Reading side in – I honestly don’t know!
This doesn’t mean that 2018 has been a free scoring tournament, but VAR has helped to ensure that some poor quality matches which would have definitely finished goalless otherwise have ended up 1-0 thanks to penalties which would never have been given before.
There have been dramatic finishes galore with plenty of late goals being scored and when VAR has got involved, this has only added to the sense of drama.
It was Healey who was the centre of attention though in a first half which saw City unable to fully cash in on their dominance because of a series of good saves by home keeper Stephen Hall.
Hall was only beaten the once when Healey touched in from close range halfway through the half, but he came out on top against the striker when he saved Rhys’ penalty after he was brought down in the area.
