So many times recently I've commented that I could have kept goal for the opposition. Refreshing for it to be the other way round tonight. They don't come much easier than that.
On that evidence we have dodged a bullet with Bonne compared to Riis although slightly harsh judged on one game. Riis looks to have real potential and the thing I like the most about him is he seems to have a real football brain for a young lad. Great awareness. Still missed a sitter but he does look a player.
How do we convert that to home form though? We have players very geared to counter attack away football. Sinclair barely touches the ball but his contribution to big moments is lethal. Big challenge for the gaffer to get it working at Deepdale.
Final comment, I am no fan of Hughes but he was probably the man of the match tonight (George Banks announces it on 85 mins so we can overlook the slip up on 86).
One of the few times when all of their comments are fair to be honest.
