A steady performance against a superior [full time] outfit. It was a dire first half but the second period was much livelier. The home side were slightly fortuitous to earn a point but Port dug in & deserve credit after two sensational reaction saves from McMillan and some heroic last ditch defending. Seemed to be lacking a midfield playmaker and they need to commit more bodies into the box in open play. Still overly reliant on scoring from set pieces which, to be fair, they managed to achieve today. Can only recall one attempt on goal other than Grand's equalising header. Finally, a disappointing turnout from the locals given the perfect conditions but that shouldn't really be a surprise.
No not really, it mirrors the lack of ambition showed by the invisible chairman and his "board!!??".
