Not a great start if we were forced to start with Halford at RB...

... and then as result have no one left on the bench to go in to centre midfield, when needed, with Loic injured.

It seems to me that we have a very shallow bench.

Also confirms for me that it was stupid to let Huws go (though I understand the financial reasons for doing so)

Not ideal to start with knocks to Pelts, Richards, Harris and Connelly. Nevermind the two new players who arrived injured.

Pre-season was perhaps a bit too intense

Richards came on as sub in the second half.

Don’t panic!

We’ll be ok in league 1 next season, probably favourites for promotion.


lol!

I don't think there is any need for panic. Neil Warnock likes players who are flexible, so starting them in "unfamiliar" positions pre-season is a useful exercise. Against Livingston, he could quite easily have gone with a back three to include Halford, with two wing-backs. However, I don't they ever posed that much of an attacking threat to warrant that.
