Mullen Does his homework

Not only did we prove we can win with more than nine men on the pitch we also proved we have the tatical nouse to changes things around to win matches.

Different managers have different approaches some will set there stall out and let the opposition worry about us. Some will tinker almost every game. However it is becomming clear that Jimmy Mullen sits between both camps, hopefully getting the best out of both camps. He is certainly more rigid on how he sets up his team, but also knows how to use the strenght and weaknesses of individual players for the benefit of the team.

How many noticed that Simon Hackney had been targeted as a major threat from Carisle on Saturday, especially as Palmer was at full back with Rhys been suspended. This doubling up on Hackney meant that the tricky wide man was only seen in isolated flashes, these things don't happen by chance and it is the difference between challenging and been also rans.

Well done Jimmy
