Wanderers move up a place thanks to handy point that, admittedly, could and possibly should have been more.
The deadlock was nearly broken within just 30 seconds as the innovative tactical move of 'Wheater long-ball to Madine' ricocheted into the path of Josh Vela before his improvised effort was easily blocked by Bialkowski. Nothing else of note occurred bar an impressive Alnwick save from a Luke Chambers shot.
Antonee Robinson crossed into Vela whose flick-on found Gary Madine who stretched to poke Wanderers ahead just 5 minutes into the 2nd period; there were minor appeals for offside, without having seeing a beneficial angle, it does look extremely tight. Wanderers had chances when Madine hit the post and Morais fizzed wide to kill the game off but a frankly delightful move matched with flat-footed central-defensive confsuion led to Joe Garner finishing off an attractively intricate Tractor Boys' move.
I was annoyed yet unsurprised to see an unnecessary amount of anger in the fans' reaction. We're a side that will have exceeded all expectations by finishing 21st. This point leaves Wanderers 2 places above the drop having played their final game of the first month. There seems to be a remarkable delusion and self-entitlement that leads to harsh and unfair criticism a lot of the time. We WILL stay up.
