have not been blogging Torquay’s home games over Xmas – lazy of me. here’s the basis you need to know…
Good defence, two clean sheets, especially terrific against Swindon in a long rearguard action. Robertson and Ellis very solid. Oastler continues to impress at right back. I really like Olejnik in goal.
Atieno good at holding the ball up as a solo striker, but slow at moving the ball on.
Lots of chances created when the ball played along the floor, but does not happen enough. Playing with three central midfielders but they do need to work on their support of the strikers. Atieno was often left on his own. O’Kane especially should be asked to work higher up, out of the three (O’Kane, Mansell, Lathrope).
Anyway, off to Plymouth Argyle away this afternoon. Will write properly after that one.
