@RAY47160943: “One of the best performances this season. Laxalt what a player, endless energy and didn’t let many past him. Defence still got issues and need to concentrate more but going forward we were decent tonight. How has elyonoussi not bad bagged 3 I’ll never know.”

@Davidbeaton20: “Overall great result against a very good team. Poor again defensively. I sincerely hope we are already looking for 2 new defenders for when the window opens. Attacking wise finally we look interested.”

@OMITCHELL3: "Fair result and ultimately a decent point but frustrating given the ridiculous manner of their two goals. Feel with a bit more quality going forward we could have picked them off another once or twice too. Onwards and upwards hopefully.”

@Lowkeylaurmanii: “Draw isn’t good enough. We should’ve won the game after that first half.”

@TheTweetofShaun: “A good first-half performance saw us 2 up but riding our luck. The second half saw the same problems with Lennon came up. He can't organise the side to defend set-pieces and he doesn't know when to make subs to bring on fresh legs etc. Waiting until the 81st minute cost us.”

@MartinWardhaugh: “Laxalt and Frimpong both absolutely sensational tonight but Ajer coming off injured definitely unsettled the team in the end.”

@MDoak1888: “Elyounoussi showing what he can do the night. Just don’t want another good 3 game spell then disappears off the face of the earth for 6 months.”

@TamMullen8: "Hate to say it but Scott Brown looks done as a footballer at this level. Cant fault his effort and will never pull out a tackle but just has no impact on the game at all.”

@mmcveighbhoy7: "Good point, hopefully a turning point, badly missing Jullien to defend that box, Lenny made the right subs to steady the ship.”

@paul_gowdy86: “Who is making the decisions?? Ntcham shuld been off 10mins before they scored. Welsh was coming on then lenny was heard on the pitch side mic. I think we shuld take olie off whos calling the shots of its not lenny making the subs”
