That may not have been the best game of football I have witnessed but any point away from home in this division is a good point as far as I am concerned.
Stoke City are an established Premier League side and we have to earn the right and it does not come automatically that you go to any established Premier League club and expect a win.
On the journey up I said that if we could take a draw beforehand I would turn the coach around and go home satisfied.
Was it two points dropped or a point gained is the question ?
I think that is a point gained.
Of course it could have been better but I am taking the positives from that game, Declan John had a good game and got a decent shot off that troubled Bergovic.
I spoke to a couple of fans who think it is time for Whittingham to be dropped, I don’t agree with that thought process.
There was even a couple of fans on their way out of the ground who were questioning whether Malky is the manager to keep up us up, hopefully that is just born from disappointment from not gaining three points and nothing more.
It was a battling game where skill and entertainment weren’t in high demand but we have come away with a point and a clean sheet.
I will happily take a point on the road at any ground as long as our home form against the expected lower half teams result in wins.
Malky seemed happy with the point walking off.
The team will stay in Stoke tonight and tomorrow they will head over to Croydon.
See you all at Palace for a win
