The Balance Sheet: Wrexham v Maidstone

mark_carrington_2

Positives:
We’re through to the third round!

Lots of creativity in midfield – Clarke, Carrington and Harris all played defence-splitting passes to put strikers clear on goal.

The energy and movement of Connor Jennings.

Jon Flatt’s string of sharp saves.

James Pearson’s first career assist.

Wes York’s pace allowed us to get in behind Maidstone’s defence regularly.

Andy Bishop maintained his fine scoring record in the FA Cup.

Negatives:
Once more we failed to take enough of our chances.

York wasn’t able to capitalise on his opportunities apart from when he won the penalty.

Should Louis Moult have been put on earlier to add more cutting edge up front?

The ten minutes after Maidstone went down to ten men were their best spell, which was a genuine concern: we could have let them back into the game then.

One thought on “The Balance Sheet: Wrexham v Maidstone

  1. The shape of the team seems so good with York up front I think its worth continuing with. That decision has a fairly balanced list of pros and cons in itself. He ain’t Matt Derbyshire, but he’s just good about good enough. We will keep having chances go begging, but at this level it looks like it works.
