Another goal from a corner

Recommended Posts

Just as against Bolton we conceded a goal yesterday from a corner when Craig Fleming was outjumped.  So does that mean we should replace Fleming with Jason Shackell? Well possibly but perhaps we should look at a couple of other factors. Both goals were superb headers but with Greeno reluctant to come off his line, this puts a lot of pressure on the defenders to make the headed clearance. For both corners we had just about everybody back but although we had a defender on the back post, there was no one on the front post. If there had been a defender on the goal line at the front post, both ''goals'' could possibly have been cleared.  Of course neither would have changed the overall result but it could be crucial to defend the front post in the games to come.
