It's an improvement to get point but the same issues are still there for me.

I do think he needs to play wilf and andros as proper wingers. I would also like to see andros encouraged to shoot a bit more.
Benteke had his first start against Brighton, so think we need to cut him some slack, especially as you point out the lack of creativity, a player like that thrives on service; that's the real worry to me, we have creative players like Wilf, Andros and RLC but they sometimes seem to come out under a cloud and I am not sure why? Perhaps because they have been tasked to provide goals rather than service in the last couple of months?

With our best 11 we can play many varying formations but for the moment Roy likes a narrow 4-4-2, it gives us solidity but at the expense of creativity so lies the problem of where do Wilf and RLC fit in. We can all clearly see Wilf isnít a striker and RLC isnít a winger so the logical solution would be play RLC in the middle behind Benteke but in reality I donít think that will work either as RLC isnít quick enough. Think Roy will have to tweak some things to get us to be more of a threat. However loving his work. We have played some good stuff under him and it has been varied from very direct to a passing game (that got us into trouble against Everton) so at least we know he is very tactically astute, I do think he will be braver and vary the formation once we have a few more clean sheets under our belts but all in all loving his work and at least we are in the mix and have a proper fighting chance of staying up.

Tbh as long as we aren't getting beaten he can play how he likes. The 0-0 bore derby was more Brighton's fault than ours for their persistent fouling of Wilf and negative tactics.

At least 3 very strong pen shouts in that game, poor refereeing and negative Brighton tactics cost the win

It would be great to win on Saturday to really get close to the mid table teams.

That said I would take a draw.

Still 6 points from 12th, at least until tomorrow when Southampton play Bournemouth, as one of them will end up on at least 17.
