We don't have anyone who looks remotely like scoring a header from a direct corner so we need a different tactic.

Shame it's taken 40 games to work that out.

The thing with short corners is you have to keep possession. If your CB's go up for the header and you lose the ball out on the wing you are very vulnerable to a quick counter, and they have players out already.

Thought against Bolton we could have mixed it up a bit more. Better teams would have sussed it out much sooner.

I felt it was a tactical decision by Bolton. Every time Cole received it on the edge, he'd cross it into the back post and set up to defend those crosses rather than the corners. What they didn't expect was for Cole to thread a through ball into Mount in the area
