I am pretty sure Woolery was up front on his own for the whole game and Burton was on the left of midfield in the first half (Kahn was on the right, Morris behind Woolery).Great result - have to admit that i didn't see that coming! If only IFollow had shifted the cameras to Neville at the end - would have made my day!
Still don't get the Burton substitution - suggestions that he wasn't covering back for Manny on here yesterday when Salford were playing it through the channels but he was playing CF - it was Left Mid who should have been covering Manny not him
That said Manny seemed to be free lancing and was way out of position on numerous occasions in the first 30 minutes.
In any event Burton did great - that back flick early on to set up Lewis was top drawer and he should certainly get more opportunities going forward. Was also strong on the ball for a young lad who is not tall either. One positive from a crazy situation.
Either way, the tactical change needed to be made, even if it was a switch from 442 to 451. We had more control in midfield and there was more protection for the defence after the substitution.
