I thought last night showed the benefits of being a “full time” team. Whilst we weren’t great, we were tactically very flexible and that only comes with work on the training ground.
We started with a 4-4-2 diamond and quickly changed to a standard 4-4-2. We were being over run in midfield due to being outnumbered.
Second half we went 4-2-3-1 with Preston, Kosylo and King in behind Rodney. This gave us way more control.
Thought Ferry and Maher were excellent despite being outnumbered. Rodney is raw and not the finished article but does an excellent job for this side.
One thing that caused us massive issues is that the full backs sit so deep and narrow that their wingers had acres of space. I can only assume we were scared of Clarke and Brown being turned for pace in the channels.
Off night, but a decent point and there’s clear signs of progress with this team.
