I certainly wouldn’t claim any tactical perception but in the last 2 games in particular it has looked very much like Gillingham & Burton got results because they turned our ‘play it out from the back’ tactics into a weakness. If I was the Burton manager, it would have been my tactic too, its a bit obvious.
Famewo and Inniss are big misses and certainly with them playing we are going to let in far fewer goals from corners and set pieces, but , if I’m honest, I get quite scared when Inniss is trying to play it out from the back too.
I think Watson is a tremendous player, he is like our quarter back and can dictate the play but last night he wasn’t great either, we need to see him playing the ball forward more often rather than too often back or sideways to the centre halves. In that case, the midfielders, Shinnie, Gilbey and Maddison ( or Morgan) have to show for the ball and be prepared to beat a man and maybe lose the ball. It was all too negative last night, I’d like to see us go for the jugular and be more positive. Last night, Charlton shaped up like they were playing an international team not bottom of the table, no confidence Burton.
Anyway, a chance for tactical redemption on Saturday- lets hope so.
