Watched the highlights and how FGR No.6 doesn't get a red for that assault (it wasn't a tackle) on Wallace is beyond me.
If that's not a red card offence then I don't expect to ever see another player sent off.

The criticism of Wallace/Norwood on this thread is well wide of the mark.

Norwood may not look like he's ever going to score again but his work rate is without question and he keeps the opposition defence on the move and under pressure.

Wallace is not Harris but I don't see that he did much wrong. He's never going to have the engine Harris has after his injuries but is there a better passer at the club. He also doesn't shy out of a tackle which given his injury record is admirable. More than happy to have him as an option in the squad.

Most of the posts are not a criticism of Wallaces performance but more a comment on whether what he offers is right for the team.With both him and Hughes in the team we do become slower and less imposing physically.In this league that is a loss as physicality is often the dominant feature of the game.It is in that context that Wallace looks a luxury.Hughes offers more as a more like for like player. Harris brings an added dimension to midfield and in his absence the versatile Maynard is better suited to replicating the contribution of Harris.
As for Norwood, he was good at doing the simple,intuitive thinks as a striker and that has gone from his game but it could return.His work rate however is exceptional and he is well worth his place in the side.Against teams like Greasly and Maidstone his pace is likely to stretch defenders
