It would be nice if we could have something resembling our first-choice back line today.

At least it looks like a perfect day for it.

With 3 games in the next 7 days Pacific desperately need players returning to full health. 

Unless players return, I think they only have 11 healthy and eligible outfield players for today. I heard Verhoven might have picked up an injury too

Does the league not have some sort of emergency loan protocol etc?  I thought Pacific picked up someone from the highlanders earlier this season?  Maybe its too much to ask for Friend to suit up??

Think it's just for keepers. They have 6 on the bench today

Is it me, or did this ref love a drop ball?!  Yet he ruined them by never allowing the best part of one - the two opposition players absolutely smashing each other while the ball is falling to the ground. 

As for the actual game, I’ll take 3 goals scored and a road win any day, but Forge made life far more difficult than it should have been by not finishing a few of those first half chances. On another day, we’d not only be dropping two points, we could easily have given away all 3.

by new rules drop balls are not contested anymore..goes to one team

Is that one of the new rules that has just started this season? I’m sure I recall Arfield and Scott Brown contesting one just this past year in an Old Firm derby. To be fair it probably is a good decision, but there was something special about that Arfield/Brown contest.

Is it also a new rule that if the ball hits the ref, it is a drop ball? That was a strange one, but perhaps that’s because I’ve missed it in the changes too.
