@76skelly: Cattermole and McGeouch didn’t work in the same team for me either. Too slow to move the ball,Catts moved it quicker and that says a lot #SAFC

@DanielJenks89: Poor again. Another home draw is papering over the cracks from our slow starts #SAFC

@ALS_Fanzine: A poor start again put us on the back foot. This needs to be sorted pretty quickly as it’s going to cost us soon. A draw maybe a fair result against a well drilled Fleetwood outfit. We’re still unbeaten and onward we go to Burton. Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone.

@RokerReport: Feeling indifferent about today’s performance. We did well second half and should definitely have won, but our inability to start well is hanging round us like a bad smell.

@LiamWhite2: We’ve gotta stop starting so slow and conceding first, it’ll get to the point where teams will bag a second before HT and it’ll be game over. Good to see we’ve got fight in this team and we’re still unbeaten, but we must improve. #SAFC

@waldron1994: McGeouch still looks raw. Wyke didn’t do well when he came on. We were saved by a quality penalty stop from McLaughlin. #safc

@B4RK3R7: Very much a work in process > no doubt under the leadership we will continue having an excellent season .. Still undefeated .. Another game in the legs for those returning to squad, HA’WAAAAAY The lads

@redleaderwright: Denver Hume seems to be everywhere and Lee Cattermole was first rate.

@AndyHoughton14: I'll take a point over a loss any day. The manager has done amazing since coming into the job

@jamesleemidd: Anyone else think the centre midfield seem missing at times allowing a clear run at the back 4 or just me ? #SAFC
