Boss Excited By Front Four

12 February 2014

Power and pace makes Railwaymen more of a threat in the final third

Steve Davis says he will certainly look at trying to get his powerful front men Uche Ikpeazu, Mathias Pogba and Chuks Aneke into the same starting eleven again this season after seeing them cause Bradford City a number of problems last weekend. Ikpeazu scored twice and Pogba the other one in a thrilling 3-3 draw with the Bantams. Aneke created two of the goals.

The Alex boss told the club’s official web-site: “I thought the front four because I would include Brad (Inman) in that had a big effect. We see Pogs as a centre forward playing wide rather than a winger, coming inside and hitting goals like he did at Bradford.

“Uche is deceivingly quick and will get quicker as he gets fitter and his power and strength is always going to cause problems for defences, and Chuks comes off the front, gives us that creativity and scores goals himself.

“Brad offers us that real pace and directness from the wing. They are all looking dangerous which is a great plus for us.

“They are not going to combine as well as some of the players we have played in there but we have to find a way for them to continue being dangerous within the style of how we play. We have to utilise their strengths and that's on-going. We've also got Vadaine who's a big guy.

He added: “I think any defence in this division would find it very hard to contain them.”
