    We just seem fitter than every team we have played since lockdown

    Pleasure to watch that 2nd half and we now look like a side good enough to play in championship

    Said during the lockdown we'd be the fittest side, only time youth will be on our side. There will be some 32 year old plus established Championship players having to have more ice baths and injections than hot dinners.

    Jacob Brown literally never stops running!

    He frustrates me on occasion as I expect a bit more from him but his work rate is phenomenal. Keep at it Browny lad

    I hoped it would work in our favour. Mowatt’s been on his bike loads & running 5k’s in incredibly quick times, Brown’s a proper athlete anyway but has been hammering the bike as have Chaplin & Ben Williams. Jordan Williams also been doing lots of jogging & sprints.

    They've all been cycling loads too. Really seemed to have taken their fitness seriously . Not having kids on the whole is probably a help to, because they haven't got the distractions.

    Think some of the teams just want season over - especially those with little to play for

    My dad saw Brown running on pennine trail during lockdown and said he was rapid.

    Last few minutes we was still chasing and harassing them with the ball . A great second half performance .
