False Number 9 Again?

15 October 2013

Davis adds another system to his locker

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he will consider playing with a false number 9 again after seeing it pay off superbly well at Preston at the weekend. The on-loan Arsenal starlet Chuks Anke was re-introduced back into the starting XI operating off the front and his link up play helped create both goals in a 2-0 win.

Steve told “We played without a recognised centre forward and had Chuks coming off their centre halves and giving them something to think about.

“The defenders like to have someone to mark and having the quick wingers making the runs from deep and they both scored. It is something we will consider again. If we will do it again for the visit of Bristol City at home, I don’t know.

“We will look at how Bristol City line-up and like to play and decide what we are going do, but it is something we have in the locker and would consider again.”
