See that booking from Strapp? Yeah it was a sloppy challenge but it's because they tried to free Nesbitt down the left and he turned round and played an overhit pass to Strapp, putting him under pressure. Nesbitt needed to take that forward but just didn't do it.

Have to admit, with this wind, I'm a bit worried about McAdams kicking into it, his distribution from what I've seen can be the weakest part of his game at times.

Nice to be a goal up but didn't think we've looked that convincing. Nesbitt having a mare with his passing and Orsi doing his usual non effective best. Defence looked comfortable although rarely tested and McAdam has had little to do. Would love to see midfield creating more but they're often watching defence doing the hoof and hope stuff.

Conditions are clearly not brilliant but hopefully playing into the wind will encourage a bit more football on the deck.

Fjortoft may have blocked that shot but he was Bambi on ice in the first place and should have been right across that to clear it. We're looking sloppy here.

I'd take Orsi off for Lyon. Bit more drive from the midfield and get the two wingers up more to support Oliver. 

Orsi doesn't bring much in a front two.

Two minutes later, Fjortoft first slips, then doesn't recover, then doesn't move. Brian McLean is left doing the work of two defenders and Russell McLean has space and time to open up his body for a superb finish.

100% Fjortoft's fault. He's been atrocious for the entire second half so far.

It's more annoying that he slips twice in a few minutes, one being a chance to tap in, then he slips in defence and we concede. He should've pressed the man too once he got back up.

That's it for me. A slip, OK, it happens on a damp surface. But then he just stands there like it's fucking kabaddi when there's a striker in the box with the ball at his feet and Brian McLean trying to get across. What did he think he was achieving there? Was he narrowing the angle for a cutback? Not especially. Did he think Strapp couldn't track someone coming in from out side? Or was he just unsure of his options and defaulted to standing still? None reflects especially well on a guy who clearly thinks he should be starting every week (and to be fair he's still better than McGinty, but he's playing against the team fourth in League One.)

Anyone elses commentary ahead of the play

Aye, marginally. Starting to be quite frustrating though, don't really see the point in watching may as well just listen!
