Liking the look of Hedges, McGinn appears to be enjoying himself

Disappointing end but solid enough and plenty of positives. See us moving in to the next round. Good performances, only gripes being big Sam not scoring a few and Scotty Wright, just not involved enough for a number ten, needs to have a bigger influence on the game.

We should be able to put 3 or 4 past them next week. I’d have a closer look at  the boy Lucas Lingman, too.

Decent enough performance in spells. We should have scored 4 or 5. Cosgrove poor (although improved in the second) - he's just nae very bright. Gallagher looked good, will be a handful for quite a few teams with that pace - looks a bit weak on finishing. After a good game, Logan gave away a stupid pass, but Ferguson was very poor defensively the whole game and gave the guy too much pace to make what was an excellent pass. Definitely need another midfielder. Some pretty nice stuff from us times though and moving the ball quickly, which was nice to see. Wasn't convinced by Hedges, he was okay in parts, but didn't seem to understand the defensive side of the game at all, it was like watching Stewart. We need to just deal with them over there, we're a far better team than them. The back four looked decent, but little protection from midfield. Campbell could do with a loan move to get used to the pace of the game at first team level.

Good to see Wilson wearing number 8, which should mean Gleeson hasn't been given a strip.

Overall, didn't think it was a bad performance given that it was our first competitive game of the season. A fully match fit team beats them about 5 or 6 nil. I thought Cosgrove had a bit of a shocker in front of goal, despite scoring one. Should have scored a good few more with those free headers. We definitely lack bite in the middle but thought we created a reasonable amount. Can't say I was overly impressed with hedges but maybe I wasn't paying attention. Didn't think he did anything wrong mind.

Missed their goal as I was in work. Was a shame as I don't think we deserved to concede. Watching it made me miss Pittodrie a wee bit. Always enjoyed those summer trips up.

Also, McGinns goal, very cute finish. That's the McGinn we know and love.

A decent enough game to watch, we played some good stuff at times and should have scored way more than two, but their keeper had a decent evening.

I liked the look of the new guys, thought Gallagher had pace to burn, Hedges looks like he may need a little time before we see the best of him, but he does look like he has ability, but will hold off until I have seen them over a few games. I think me missed a bit of experience in the middle of the park, Ferguson was like a headless chicken at times and showed we need another CM in as it looks like Gleeson is out the door.

Disappointing to lose the goal and they will be well up for for the return leg with that late goal, but they should have been out of the match long before the 90 minute mark.

That Piper before the game started was fecking awful.

This should be done and dusted but a mixture of great goal keeping and poor finishing followed by a defensive howler means RoPS are still in it. Hard to judge any of the new players on last night as RoPS are one of the worst teams I have seen at Pittodrie in a long time. We should still go through but due to our own failings it’s going to be harder that it should have been.
