His role was basically as a target for launched balls. The service to the front was crap, yet most things stuck to Spencer. Folks need to look at what went off behind the bloke; the midfield barely put a shift of any quality in.
I don't think it's based purely on last night's performance Doomy. Each time Evans brought him on it would usually have a negative impact to the team.
Hemmings and Rose were dead on their feet last night and Spencer is brought on to freshen things up and he is trudging around like he has just finished a marathon. His running between the Lincoln defence was shocking and for a big lad his hold up play is nothing short of atrocious. The number of times he gets easily muscled off the ball is pathetic. Then maybe you thing he might offer something in the air but nope I don't recall him winning a header all season with the exception of the Guisley game. Compared to Danny Rose who he has a considerable height advantage over his heading ability reminds me of Andy White.
Dare I say it Spencer makes Ollie Palmer look like a decent forward and Matt Rhead look like Alan Shearer.
