An enor­mous flaw in at­tack­ing tac­tics

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sports -

All this talk about “Di­a­monds for Change” and the one man who seems obliv­i­ous to it is Stephen Find­lay.

Ev­ery­one and their granny could see on Satur­day that Wil­lis Fur­tado was plough­ing a lone fur­row in at­tack against Al­loa and needed sup­port ur­gently.

Of course, when the head coach in­tro­duced the young Wolves loa­nee Jor­dan Al­lan, the Di­a­monds faith­ful were dis­mayed and puz­zled to see him re­place num­ber nine rather than part­ner him.

Fur­tado had run his socks off all af­ter­noon and was on a book­ing, but surely it was worth keep­ing the faith while he was given the help he needed.

Did it cost us a share of the points? I guess we’ll never know.

How­ever, Find­lay’s fail­ure to spot the clear flaw in our at­tack­ing set-up cer­tainly made it less likely that we were ever go­ing to pro­duce an equaliser.

Once more, the de­fence were cul­pa­ble when it came to Al­loa’s goal, and it’s fast be­com­ing the case that one slip at the back is all it takes to spell de­feat for the Di­a­monds at the mo­ment.

Lost Fur­tado was alone up top
