Only played ten minutes as he was dropped to the bench but came on to help the Cobblers run down the clock and secure a 1-0 home win. Below are a few comments from the Hotel End message board:
tony_yeboah 'Marshall came on for about 10 minutes. The first thing he did was control the ball mid air and then flick it over his head. A superb bit of skill. His problem is obviously his stamina, hence Sammo dropping him to the bench. I fully expect him to be unleashed against Morecombe. Also would be great to see him on the right wing with Davis on the left'
ntfc_nut: 'There's definitely been a marked deterioration in his performances over the last month or so, but the fact the rest of the squad is starting to get their act together and perform well has probably exaggerated it a little.'
Marvo 'I think the fact that he didn't start this game says all you need to know about his recent form. If you can't get in our starting line-up, you're not going to be appearing for a Premiership club any time soon.'
tcobb 'Should have been on a lot earlier,to replace the waste of space Guttridge.'
Missed the Blades short trip to Scunthorpe with cracked ribs sustained prior to the international break
Played at right back for Sheff Utd as they lost 3-1 away at local rivals Scunthorpe. Jamie, editor of BladesMAD, had the following to say on the defenders performance
'Andrew had a relatively quiet game and was pretty anonymous. The whole back-line against Scunthorpe were a disgrace at Glanford Park. We are conceding goals like no one's business at the moment, but this isn't necessarily Davies' fault. His fellow defenders have been letting the whole team down lately.
Andrew wasn't the worst player wearing our white and claret away shirt today (Saturday), but none of the players shone really. Like I alluded to above, he didn't appear much in the clash, so unfortunately there isn't a great deal to write about him'
Rob Miles, editor of TykesMAD, gives us the lowdown on Shotton's performance
'Got booked early doors but another very good performance. We had to soak up alot of pressure and he threw his body into everything. Have to say Stoke fans, this guy will be good enough to grace the Premier League. I feel privileged every time I see him in a Barnsley shirt'
Rob Miles, editor of TykesMAD, gives us the lowdown on Dickinson's performance
'Opted for the route one stuff in the first half which was slightly disappointing but looked much better after the break. Brought the ball forward and tried to pass it. Solid defensively as always.'
Had a good game, plucking crosses left right and centre and also showing his usual excellent shot stopping ability but this time it was not all in vain as the Motormen came away with all 3 points after turning a 1-0 half time deficit into a 3-2 full time win against 3rd placed Fleetwood Town. Reward for the keepers fine displays week in, week out that he finally ended up on the winning side.
Hull don't play until Monday and the review will be added after the game
