    Considering most weren't in the penalty area no they probably didn't.

    Again, that's what I said about "chances" the other week. We don't create that many

    No, what we need to do is to carry on slating Stuart Beavon every day. It's clearly all very constructive and the point needs to keep being made at least once every 24 hours.

    Only Nazon and Jones are scoring for us.

    A Biamou header from the penalty spot, from a Kelly cross - gonna have to be a brilliant header to beat the keeper from there at the angle the ball is crossed from.
    A Grimmer grass cutter from outside the box whenhe dribbled from deep.
    A DKE grass cutter from 30 yards.
    The Kelly 22 yarder which the keeper made a good save from.
    Biamou's 2 cleared off the line in the scramble from the Shipley corner.

    Can't remember the other 2 but the 8 on target weren't exactly missed 1 on 1s. The only 2 chances I really thought we should have done better with was the McNulty pull back to DKE which he scuffed wide and should have at least hit the target and the 2nd McNulty pullback when he should have shot himself and not pulled it back to Jones.
    As an aside, everyone of those described attempts was in the 2nd half and from build up out wide. Nothing created through the middle.

    There’s plenty of time to fix this. All some strikers need is to just get that one goal before they go on a run of a few goals. You can see Biamou getting closer each game and McNulty is still producing for the team - he got a good assist for Ponticelli and won the penalty v Walsall.

    To reiterate the point, you’d be surprised with the goal tallies of the top scorers in the automatically promoted teams. Portsmouth, Plymouth too scorers got 13 and 15 respectively whilst Doncaster’s got 26 I think. Doncaster absolutely bottled it in the last 4 games, and also happened to have the worst defence of the three.

    Given the choice between our defence (atm) and the best striker in the league, I’d go with the former to be frank.

    I think we should stick with Biamou and Nazon for now wherever possible. McNulty has been a disappointment so far and we know that Beavon is a provider rather than a goalscorer.

    Put McNulty and Beavon on the bench and bring them on if we need to change things. I would keep Kwame Thomas in the U23's. See if he can shine there first before stepping up.

    I agree with some of the points you make here, Biamou I feel has the ability to get some vital goals this year is we start playing to his strengths. This means giving him some half decent service.

    As you pointed out that Plymouth and Portsmouth went up on good defences and without a 15/20 goal man many think will instantly give the answer. However they had vast amounts of players chipping in with the goals. We currently only have 7 goal scorers and one or two of those most likely have there token goal for the season. We need goals from anyone ideally.

    Plymouth and Portsmouth had some joy from set pieces too, that's something we're struggling with with a poor delivery most the time. We only scored from a corner at Grimsby if I'm correct in thinking.
    We've players who can cause trouble in the box and get goals from set pieces with Stokes, Mcdonald, Grimmer, Biamou and possibly Willis too who we can get goals from with a better dead ball specialist. Currently we only have Kelly as the best of a poor bunch to do this.

    A few tweaks and we're almost there. We're so close as a side to being very dominant
