Paterson/Weimann isn’t working. Both aren’t creating enough options in midfield as they’re both running into forward positions. Leaves Bakinson exposed (despite playing well) and creates temptation for defenders to lump it forward.

Desperately need a more natural CM for balance imo.

Concerned that Bakinson on a yellow and being left exposed = early bath..

Need a rejig.

They're winning pretty much every second ball in the middle, and are so quick to pounce on any wayward pass or miscontrol. We're also being quite sloppy which isn't helping.

Playing with 10 at the minute. Paterson is non existent. 

Bannon is glued to Paterson almost every time we have the ball which is seriously limiting us going forwards.

Another slightly disappointing half under Team Holden. 

Can't make it work playing short, can't make it work playing long.

Over-run in midfield. The Wednesday midfield 3 showing how it's done - tight out of possession and spring into action when in possession creating some decent chances.

Admittedly we've done better as the game's gone on in dealing with Wednesday - but as a half, offered nothing going forward.

Half-time re-jig needed, again!

First half summary.

Frustrating use of the ball, where I think we’ve created most our own problems.  When we have taken care of the ball we have broken the lines easily, but too often a sloppy pass has given up possession.

If we can raise our game, it’s there for us to win.

Wednesday shading the first half of threat.

Kind of game where Joe Williams would make all the difference box to box.

Weimann pretty poor first half. Not terrible but nowhere near last week's performance.

I think our wing backs aren't giving enough threat going forward too. I think Dasilva and Sessegnon will be our first choice wing backs as the season goes on. And I think they'll give more going forward.

Fair play to their midfield three. Very well drilled unit that are giving us no space at all, breaking the link between our midfield and front line, waiting for a mistake and then breaking quickly, creating the best chances in the half.

Would certainly give them the half on points. Goals that count however and hopefully second half some gaps start to appear.

Only had the last 15 minutes, but we certainly weren't overrun in that time.

Painful to watch. Can't keep the ball, isn't sticking up top and being over ran in midfield. Going to be one winner if we don't improve.

I thought it was quite good to watch but as you say not sticking up front .

Not sure how Bannan wasn't booked.

His foul on Pato was a fairly clear case of "taking one for the team" and then the lunge on Rowe on the touchline as well.

With Pato's booking he looked late to the tackle watching live, but in the replay he got his foot up same time as the defender and it was a 50/50 he had the right to go for.

Not a bad half even if a bit boring in parts.

Wednesday slightly the better team but cancelling each other out in the main, despite their midfield being amongst the best in the division.

Hopefully, we'll tighten up and get a press going second half - all got a bit sloppy towards the end of the half and the ref isn't helping, very fussy and I can see a red card or two from him.
