Good performance, deserves a bit more respect than he's had on one of his threads over the last couple of weeks.

No he doesn't he's usually awful. That said he's usually played through the middle.

Playing as a wide forward today suited him much better. Had the best game I've seen him have for us.

Sorry I’m not someone who’s on board with the hate for Hal. Yes he’s limited but he usually holds the ball up better than our other forwards (which is why he gets brought on more often than not) and took his finish well today. I took great pleasure cheering in the face of the guy who sits behind me who was shouting how s*** he is the entire game when he scored.

HRK gets alot of stick on here, much of it deserved, but today he was excellent. He has the physical strength to hold the ball up, and in that sense is more of a target man, if that's the way we are going to play. But he also showed some clever technical touches as well, and his goal was cleanly tucked away into the corner.

I agree 100% but i hope its his last one he plays for us, i cant stand cheating gits especially when they are in our colors.

Agreed. He should retain his place as wing forward. Gayle in for Rodriguez if were going to change it. However probably shouldn't be looking to change winning team

Tough choice for next game. HRK amazed me yesterday but JRod was excellent too I thought. Would be very hard to drop him after his display. These are the kind of tough decisions we want the manager to have to make.

By far his best performance for us, the diving was embarrassing though and I hope if he keeps his place Moore has a word with him.

Unpopular opinion maybe, but I thought he was relatively ineffective compared to Phillips, Rodriguez and Barnes, until he scored his goal. After his goal he looked far more dangerous which hints there are confidence issues with him.

Deserves to keep his place for the next game 100%.

Took his chance. I will be the first too admit I was abit bemused as to why he was starting but he was solid.

From the first chance when he cut in and took a shot, I thought he looked up for it, held the ball up well, gave us a get out.

Fair play to him.
