Sligo Rovers

It was just a cameo performance from Coleman. He's got a game for Ireland U21s on Tuesday too and I think Moyes wants him to stay sharp and avoid letting him burn himself out before the season starts.


The reserves didn't make many chances from play and Sligo dominated a lot of the game in midfield. The players in the reserve team look like they can keep the ball well, but they found it hard to carve out any real chances (to be fair to them, Sligo are a decent side and were very well organised). I liked the look of Forshaw, but he was subbed towards the end, so maybe Stubbs and Holden don't rate him that highly. Mustafi was excellent tonight too, very assured. He and Shane seem to have a great partnership at the back.


Delighted that Shane played the whole game. Thought he played fairly well considering it was his first full game since the injury. He made some crucial blocks and almost scored twice from headers. He even got involved in a bit of a bust up when a Sligo player came running up to him and pushed him after a tackle. Shane, in turn showing the fighting Irish spirit, shoved the guy with so much force that the guy went flying and hit the ground. He wasn't expecting that from Big Duffs! Both of them probably would have been sent off in a competitive game though!
