LUFC Fans view v Wycombe Wanderers

LUFC Fans view v Wycombe Wanderers

Tiny T gives us his usual no holds barred view and ratings of the player in the lacklustre draw with Wycombe Wanderers.

Ankergren 6
Some vital saves but looked nervous all afternoon

Crowe 5
Troubled by the pacey winger, caught out on a number of occasions, rarely got forward.

Naylor 5
Another caught out by the pace of the forward, at fault for the goal and looked edgy all game struggled, could have been rested as we have enough centre backs as cover. Poor distribution always looked long.

Kisnorbo 7 [Star man]
Not as reliable as usual but with all around him having poor games never shirked a challenge. Just edged it from Beckford for me.

Johnson 6
Another who had an off day, but still tried to do something especially in the first half, overlapped but final ball poor.

Howson 4
A gift for the goal, spent too much time in our half, offered little.

Kilkenny 4
Again couldn't tackle his way out of a paper bag. Why when players pulled wide did he want to go through the middle? Spent long periods playing too deep.

Doyle 5
Tried to break up play, but another off his game, at least put the tackles in. Another guilty of going through the middle.

Snodgrass 5
Looks injured, lacked pace and needs to use the overlap when it`s available.

Becchio 4
Unusual for Luciano but off the pace all game, the ball wouldn't stick and his play suffered.

Beckford 7
Little to feed off but worked hard even ran 40 yards to win the ball back after losing it.
If/when he goes he'll be missed, impossible to replace his goals.

Gradel - 5 - Made wrong decisions in the right places cannot run through three players and when he could cross, delivery poor.

White - 5 - Didn't see much off the ball, stayed out wide to receive but midfield went through the middle.

Grella - Only got five minutes at the end.

A game where the team could have rested a couple as too many had off games. The effect from last week was there for all to see and if were honest Wycombe could have left with all three points as they hit the post twice and looked bright.

Centre midfield played too deep all afternoon and the passage of play was slow and predictable. We got in and around the area but always wanted another pass or turn instead of putting it in the box or shooting.

If/when Beckford goes he'll be missed his all round play has improved this season and as the saying goes goal scorers are like Rocking Horse doo-doo, so lets hope we don't have to spend everything we get on replacing him as other areas need additions as well.

Final point with the long ball being played and Becchio suffering from last weeks exertions were was Kandol, not even in the squad.

Plus points, we didn't lose and a point gained.
