With Erik Nevland forced to pull out of the fixture against Birmingham, on Saturday, due to succumbing to illness late on, Roy Hodgson was forced to make a change.

The versatile Clint Dempsey was asked to play alongside Bobby Zamora and although the weather conditions made the contest scrappy, to say the least, Dempsey did a decent job playing in a slightly unfamiliar position.

Perhaps, on another day, Joe Hart might not have got his hands to that late effort from Dempsey and we`d all be discussing a 1-1 draw instead of a blip on our unbeaten record, but such is life and although Dempsey was to later reflect,

“We kept them on the back foot and a fair result would have been a draw.”

I`m sure we`ll bounce back with three points on Wednesday night when Blackburn Rovers arrive in our part of London!

  • Injuries and illness aside, this was yet another of our grind-it-out, go-for-the-draw performances. We put a lot of pressure on our home form when we don’t try to take point against teams like Birmingham and Wigan. I wish Roy would throw caution to the wind in our away fixtures and just go for the win sometimes.

  • AWAY WINS AT ANY GROUND ARE HARD TO COME BY THESE DAYS ALL THE PREM CLUB ARE CLUED UP AND THE IS A LOT OF PRESSURE TO WIN THERE HOME GAMES
