Rob Hutchison – on the edge of the abyss

John McCormick writes: Rob Hutchison, or maybe his daughter Olivia, sent his post-match verdict to M Salut, who sent it on to me. Short and sweet it is; like the aforementioned Olivia and certainly not like me or that other Short we’ve come to question.

And all the better for that:

Battling. Quality at a premium, rather like Steele’s distribution. Never have I seen a big  striker look so powder puff light. Cookie’s son in the away end was getting right into it.

Steele 6 better

Oviedo 8 STRIKE ?

Jos 7 organised

Browning 7 assured

  Olivia and dad

Kone 7 sharper

Matthews 6 scrapped

Catts 6 boisterous

Ejaria 5 patchy

Mcmanaman 6 busy

McGeady 6 harried

Fletcher 4 wisp-like

Honeyman 5 clouted

Asoro 5 quiet
