The great thing about Mo is his technique. The way in which he hits the ball makes him so deadly. He's the best finisher I've ever seen at the club!

certainly one of the best. Holman runs him close (at a lower level), going way back in time Dave Lewis.

It is odd how he hasn't really done it at home - 6 goals and 3 of those were against Vale.

Doesn’t get the space to gallop on our narrow pitch. The distance from side line to eighteen yard box “in the channel” is so small at WR there just isn’t the space ideal for his game.

Same effected most players with a pace game...K Mo, McG, Devaney, Odejayi. At home most of their goals came on the counter when there was space. Whereas away from home there is enough space to work an opening.

Just for context, in 2016, 24 of the 72 football league clubs had pitches as narrow or narrower than Whaddon Road. it is barely believable that the WR pitch, at 72 yards, is 12 yards wider than Wigan - the narrowest pitch in league football.

We don't use the width we have. If you sit in the Colin Farmer towards the away fans you never see anyone. At least when Ilias turned up we see a full back but as far as left side forwards they seem extinct.We do see some good demonstrations of running across the pitch from Sellars and Morrell in a dead straight line but that does not help Eisa.

It's not hard to realise that our formation and players, in the second half of this season, are better suited to playing away from home where the opposition come out and attack us more, leaving Mo and others more room to attack into. At WR what we see more often than not is teams turning up and sticking 7 or 8 behind the ball for the majority of the match, especially if they get a lead. The few times teams haven't come and defended with that many behind the ball (Morecambe, Vale) we've battered them. This isn't just with one up front, but we've played 3 up front and still can't break these highly defensive, time-wasting teams down. What we need is a player like Sellars, who has the ability to beat a couple of men and draw them out, but that player then needs to be able to find a killer pass or shot...which Sellars currently isn't good enough for.

Thay all remained calm in front of goal-confidence !

Like Dayton did to the Conference sides.

You seem to be mixing your yds.with metres.
Some conflicting figures perhaps Paul Godfrey can supply the official EFL.stats.?

Interesting Wigan is longer. Gives more room for players to run in behind and / or creates more space between the lines.

Exactly. We definitely do need a couple of proper wingers at home who can actually get to the byline and pull a cross back as well. Obviously, when teams defend the area like their lives depend on it you need to try and stretch them with quick passing across the pitch and we don't do that enough. But even if we do get down the wings, everyone these days who gets anywhere down the side of the box seems to stop, pass it backwards, and whomever is there tries to cross it in from 25-30 yards from the byline, which is a lot less dangerous.

Kotwica was the last time I recall a proper cross stuck up from the byline.

Lee Williams. Even Neil Howarth was a dab hand.

Williams the best. His crosses seem to hang in the air in unison with Alsop hanging in the air. The whole world seemed to stop apart from the coiling back of Jules’ neck before time started again with the explosion header into the net.

Also, was it Ward or Cotts who used to set a target of 20 crosses from within the the final 18 yards each match?

It`s less than 20 a season the way we are set up these days ?

To get 22 in such a poor supporting team is indeed some feat.

Thanks. This tells us that WR is one of the narrower pitches (though not the narrowest), which feels right. It also gives Wigan as being wider than ours, which contradicts my previous source, and Newport's pitch width as being greater than its length. All a bit inconclusive unfortunately!

The Newport dimensions are reversed,probably down to translation ? ;)

Interesting that 105 x 68 m.Is the average for top clubs.
