forest green?

have just listened to our managers view of the Burton game he said we had 3 strikers WELL every attack virtually there was only 1 in the box, perhaps thats why we were nowhere in the first half? we should have more men yon when attacking surely?

Re: forest green?

Tend to agree, Cashy. The successful pairings of the sainted Billy Kee and Jackson, and Bishop and the unsaintly Charles, seemed to work. Don’t seem to have been able to come up with a ‘pair’ of strikers since then to any extent.
I like Kode’s determination to score and Josh Woods’ pace, but Matt Lowe is, I suspect, being asked to do too much when he’s isolated on his own up front.

Perhaps the move from non-league to L1 is a leap too high for Lowe.

Maybe, but not permanently. Matt Lowe showed against Charlton that he’s a battler, but Kee and Bishop were really effective when they had a pacy partner who could run onto balls that were ‘laid off’. Lowe doesn’t seem to have had that partner yet, but he can’t be faulted for effort.

Not doubting the lads commitment, but has he got the individual skill to create goal scoring chances and, more importantly, convert them.
You can't expect strikers to have everything laid on a plate for them by others.

You can if you were Denis Law.

First half the front 3 of Whalley,Lowe and Mcconville didn't click at all long balls continually aimed at Lowe but he was up every time against 2 defenders, would be interesting to see how he would fare if we kept it on the floor as we did when he was replaced by Adeoyin.

Andy, the team sheet against Burton showed a 4;1;4;1 formation, with Lowe as a lone striker in front of Whalley, Pritchard, Hamilton, McConville.
The problem with one player leading the line is that the opposition simply put 2 defenders to mark him & you've nullified the threat.
Unless of course he's a striker like Denis Law, who could leave a 5 man defence in his wake, dance a quickstep with the goalie, before tapping in from 3 inches.
A strikers roll is to score - Bishop's been doing it every week since he joined Pompey.
The jury is still out on whether Lowe will prove to be a real gem, or just a piece of costume jewellery

I don't know why we can't have both Lowe and Kodey for at least 45 mins....

Team sheet might have said that but Coley said they played 3 upfront not that it made much difference first half when the changes were made Pritchard went into the front 3 of himself, Adeoyin and Mcconville.

Burton did a Job on us first half pressed us back constantly and won most second balls we were playing the long ball because there was little movement and shouting among our side second half we matched them all over the park apart from 10 to 15 minutes and it showed, we deserved the draw but we need to be switched on for 90+ minutes or the same thing will keep happening. If we attack more and keep possession in the opposition half they have less opportunity to score, don't think scoring will be a problem this season it's keeping the other end locked up.
