Golbourne & Defensive Options


Recommended Posts

Assuming that Johnson want's to stick with 3-5-2 now, does anyone think that should injuries occur to our back three, Golbourne could actually slot in as the left sided defender?

I know Maggers would play there at the moment, but I think Scott could do a job there.

Also if anything happened to Flint, you could put Maggers central as the ball winning centre half, and have Wright and Golbourne alongside him.

You could have:

Wright     Flint    Maggers

Wright     Flint    Golbourne 

Wright    Maggers  Golbourne


Yyner could also potentially slot in to replace Wright as well, should he be out.

Think we have already had enough experimenting with full backs playing CB! Think it more likely to either play Vyner or revert to back 4 if hit by injuries. Guess anything is possible though.

Left sided defender of a back 3 covers pretty much the same areas to that of left back. Golbourne is excellent at staying solid in that area of the pitch, and he'd have Bryan (LWB) as a permanent outlet.

Similar to Derek Williams who was obviously LCB during our promotion season, but could play left back as part of a 4-4-2 set up.
