Seems our weak link we look so much better with flanagan there. Matthews just hasnt stepped up like what catts has seems to keep sinking despite the drops in the levels we operate in.— Steven Elliott (@ElliottSAFC) September 29, 2018
Saved by Mclaughlain today. Lot of poor performances. Matthews AGAIN, flanaghan, maja, honeyman AGAIN.— @SAFC1973 (@SAFCFANSVIEW) September 29, 2018
Lots of injury concerns for Tuesday.
Power/McGeady could both start in place of Catts and Gooch.
Oviedo for Hume.#SAFC
A point a piece is fair, I think. The injuries really knocked us off our game, and let Cov back into it, and they looked dangerous. Baldwin is immense. Matthews, er, isn’t. #SAFC— Mark Evans (@Evs_Dubai) September 29, 2018
With Oviedoand Matthews in the team our defending is awful #safc— William thompson (@wdt0_0) September 29, 2018
