Davis: "I Could Chop And Change Attack"

13 April 2015

Boss could change his attacking options again for the trip to Peterborough.

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that he will continue to change his attack until he finds a winning formula. The Alex boss has certainly gone with a more attacking approach in recent weeks. He has moved from the three-at-the-back system to go with more forwards on the pitch but he has been left disappointed with a return of one goal in the last three games. It could now prompt a change in formation and personnel.

The Alex boss went with an attack force of Bradden Inman, Lauri Dalla Valle and a fit again Ryan Colclough for the visit of Leyton Orient at the weekend with target men Marcus Haber and Uche Ikpeazu on the bench. Top scorer Nicky Ajose also began on the bench as the game ended 1-1.

Steve told “I will continue to look for a winning formula if the forward players are misfiring up there. We actually have more attackers on the pitch now and have gone with a more attacking approach but we haven’t scored a lot of goals in the last three games.

“I will continue to juggle it around and see if we can become more dangerous. I went with three smaller, more mobile strikers against Leyton Orient because we thought they could run in behind and stretch their defence.

“It worked for us in the first half but we had to change things early on in the second half with Chris (Atkinson) going off. We could approach things differently again tomorrow night because we need to get those two wins we need from the last four games.

He added: “What I will do is make sure we approach it in a positive frame of mind. Nothing has really changed I think we need another six points and I’ve said we need to win some away games. We have a couple of away games left against Peterborough tomorrow night and Coventry City, and another away win would take some of the pressure off. “
