“Slater looks like some random bloke we’ve pulled off the street with zero awareness and less than zero technical ability. Looked like he’s never been on a football pitch in his life before and had the cheek to stand around shouting and pointing at the rest of the team. Our players actively avoided giving him the ball (which tells you a lot) and when he did have possession – wasted it entirely. Totally lost in space for Exeter’s first two goals when a real midfielder would’ve been defending. His combination with Miller and Liddle leaves a big gaping defensive hole in the right side of our team. I thought Curle made some strange decisions in team selection but picking this player and then leaving him on the pitch for 61 minutes takes the cake.”

“very average”

“I have to say the improvement in Slater was huge following his horror show last week. I was impressed, in honesty, with his tackling and distribution.”

“Looked composed”

“Thought Slater did well when he came on”

“There is quality in him.”

“out of position at times but not pedestrian”

“Impressive again”

“Looked sharp breaking out of defence with the ball at his feet. After his horror show at Exeter I can see glimpses of why we signed him.”
