How can we score more goals?
Really good progress to keep a clean sheet against a top team in Brentford, our second of the season. Good run in the last five games and we are defending better. Now, how can we score more goals and go on to win more games?
We are playing a back four plus two defensive midfielders so 7 defensive players with Rocky. That leaves 4 attacking midfielders/strikers to create and score goals. How do you do that? Several options:
Hit teams on the break with pace. We’ve seen it done against us this year but can we do it ourselves? Maybe Scotty can, Bayo not, Alex not sure.
Hold up play up top until more midfielders can join the attack. Probably our best tactic with Bayo.
Bring overlapping defenders up to launch the attack and create an overload on one side...Jack Grimmer/Joe not sure? McCarthy definitely.
Long ball and try for a flick on. We do a lot of this but against a well organized back four you won’t create many chances as you almost certainly need a defensive mistake or world class finishing from a half or quarter chance.
