Twenty five down, twenty one to go, twenty five points to find.
TMS 0 Brentford 0
There was an inevitability that the clash between TMS (one defeat in seven) and Brentford (unbeaten in ten and with five wins on the bounce) would end in stalemate. The surprise was that it ended goalless. However, TMS worked hard and the defence was resolute – showing the benefit of being unchanged for 5 games. Taylor might have won the game in the second half but his shot was cleared off the line. Still, we would have settled for a point at the start of the game.
TMS are down to the bare bones and the opportunity to bring new players in cannot come soon enough – but therein hangs a dilemma. TMS’ (modest) upturn in form has been due to a settled team and too much surgery could undo the work done in recent weeks to create a bit of daylight between TMS and the bottom four.
Helan, one of our unsuccessful loanees and surely the worst player on Man City’s books, was booked twice by the ref in the Owls’ game versus Huddersfield and did not see red – I know, I can’t understand what the linesman and assistant ref were doing. It is not the first time the Frenchman has been the victim of mistaken identity – earlier this season he was mistaken for a professional footballer.
Next up, away to Coventry who are unbeaten in nine.
