Fitz was a colossus in defence yesterday, but for sheer effort Fernando by a country mile. But didn't our midfield look so much better?

Forestieri is a strange player, first half he was a little quiet verging on disinterested.

Second half it was like it was his ball and he was amazing and energetic.

Tozser for me made a huge difference, decent in the air, good technically and accurate distribution. But most importantly he talked and organised ...

Merkel was quiet and battochio wasteful in possession but all in all much better.

However don't get too carried away Brighton were very average as were millwall in our last victory. Tougher tests to come although it's positive to see and beat an average team then see their league position which shows that there are some poor teams ahead of us

A win is welcome. Hall and Tozser added significantly. The team looked much more assured. Let's not get carried away. Ball retention remains a problem - better teams punish us when we keep giving them the ball.

Yes, but how did Almunia get on the shortlist ahead of Anya and Deeney?

Forestieri did well in the 2nd half but I had him and Battocchio down as our poorest players in the first half. Personally I'd give MOM to Tozser. Like Thorne, but can pass, and he's got a brain.

Whilst I think Forrestieri was very good in the second half( as were Deeney, Cassetti, and several others) I am surprised that in a game where they clearly had more of the ball that so few people opted for Fitz Hall,( who was excellent throughout ) who encouraged, barked at and marshalled the defence magnificently. Clearly too few voters ever played in a defence. Why do you always vote for the goalscorers?

I dont think Brighton stretched us enough or commited enough men forward for any of our defence to merit MOM - although Fitz did nothing at all wrong. Forestieri made things happen by his sheer persistence, he is erratic, but the number of times he regains possession is far more than any of our other forward players. His goal came from the uncertainty he created by applying this pressure. Shame Deeney doesnt do this in the way that he used to.

Merkel was pressuring Greer for the bad backpass.

Fitz Hall for me. We looked so solid at the back, it took the pressure off the rest of the team. Tozser was excellent in the first half, as Fessi was in the second. Special mention to Troy, who chased everything around the Brighton defence.

FF for me. I was surprised by Alec Chamberlain's comment on 3CR that FF has talent but needs to put the effort in every game. I could understand it if he said he needs to improve his finishing, stay calm in front of goal etc. but surely FF always puts a shift in?

If we'd have paid £2-3 million for Fitz Hall, on yesterday's performance, that could be considered a bargain and our best signing of the window.
Fessi and Anya absolutely terrified Brighton every time they ran at them. Deeney worked his socks off for 90 minutes and looked well and truly back in the fold.
The only slight concern, and I know it was only a 10 minute cameo, was Diakite. At a time when the rest of the team were maintaining possession very well to see out the game, he looked very dodgy to say the least, so judgement reserved there.
All in all though, an excellent team performance and one that keeps those play-offs more of a possibility than looking down with concern.

If QPR paid £3.5 million for Diakite surely he's better than "very dodgy to say the least". He certainly didn't look match sharp but that's to be expected. Give him more time I say.
