@SAFCFANSVIEW commented: "Underwhelmed by our top point of attack again today. Sinclair not really hit it off at all for us, Maja also looks very easy to play against anywhere outside the 18yd box. Could say the same for the whole season."

@Capt_Fishpaste said: "Wasn’t #SAFC’s best performance by any means but another good battling win to make it seven in a row. It’ll do!"

@Jayellcs added: "Pretty poor performance, but I’m impressed we did enough to hang on to the win. We’d never have managed that in past seasons like"

@ianhigh1 posted: "No matter how much #pvfc winge and moan bout the result and how lucky #SAFC we're they need to remember who is in draw for the 2nd round of #EmiratesFACup tomorrow night...big clue it's not you!"

@Ian_Crow3 commented: "2-1 and into the hat we go. @GHoneyman10 and @LyndenGooch do the job. After an impressive first half, hung on and got the win despite an improved 2nd by @OfficialPVFC, giving us a few scares. But onto the draw, hoping for a non-league team."
