Question of the Week
Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?
08/11 QPR Part 2
By: Tony Butcher
CROSSES into the box, desperate headers out by the hooped ones, the Pontoon roaring, the pressure building. QPR players took it in turns to break up the flow of play by laying on the ground rolling in agony at the slightest touch. Or whack.
Grimsby Town 1 Queens Park Rangers 0
Nothing came of that free kick, but the last five minutes were played out in front of the rollicking, raging Pontoon. Crosses, corners, blocks and madcap clearances and finally a corner from the right. Anderson curled it into the centre of the box, about eight yards out. Crane barnstormed through the box and hurled himself forward. The ball thumped off his forehead and Day magnificently arched his back, raised his right hand, and finger-tipped the ball over the bar, with perhaps the merest kiss of ball and bar. In added time, Sabin got the ball inside the Town half , which was nice for those perishing park rangers in the Osmond. And then the referee ended the scintillating, sizzling half.
Half time: Grimsby Town 0 Queens Park Rangers 0
Town were passionate, pacey, almost perfect. But still goalless. QPR were being pulverised, being forced to defend like rabid rabbits. Davison was a lonely figure, stalking his area like a forgotten pony, embarrassed to be paid for standing in a field. The game had the pace of a first division game, with Town the superior. It is impossible to single out individuals, for the team was all, the collective spirit, the cohesion, the performance was purrful. But still 0-0, and we know what happened last time we played them.
Stu's Half Time Toilet Talk
"Give me a nudge when QPR have a shot".
The report continues in the Second Half.
