Steve Davis reckons his boys somehow have to lessen the number of corners the opposition is getting because it’s the corners which are responsible for the ball to be reaching inside the D regularly.
In Davis’s view, in the event of an aerial play inside the D, it’s obvious that the height of the players will be a factor and if the other team has more than a dozen players who exceed the 6-foot mark and you only have one or two, you will surely be in trouble if you are dishing out corners.
Davis defended Ben Garratt for advancing from his spot in the Round two EFL Cup match which saw the team’s elimination saying that it is the game plan of the shot stopper, but, his fault is that he has not always been able to grab the call when he has advanced.
Davis said, “I can’t go to Ben and ask why he was not at his spot and why he made the move forward. The reason being it’s been discussed in the team meeting and he’s been told to do that, but, he has faltered in execution. So, that’s the issue. Once he leaves the line, he has got to get the hold of the ball.”
