Just shoot Benji!
After the Gary-time miss last week, Benji had another golden chance to write his name in the gulls’ folklore. One on one with the keeper, there should only be one thing on his mind – putting his laces through the ball. Instead, the young Sunderland loanee looked devoid of confidence and elected to square the ball to no-one. Benji’s strength and pace has been evident in recent weeks and he can cause nightmares for any defender. If only someone could spend some time on the training ground with him on his end product.
Kyle and Ben’s return
It has felt like forever since we last saw Ben’s wizardry down the left wing, and it didn’t take long for him to show what we have been missing with his mesmerising runs weaving in and out of defenders. He is certainly going to play an important role in the coming weeks.
Then we have ‘Mr Versatile’ himself. Maybe Gary pulls his position out of a hat with his last couple of appearances coming on the left wing and centre forward. It was nice to see him back onto the pitch, even if it was at the wrong end of it.
With Danny Wright hopefully due back in the next week or two, if it is the play off route we end up going down, we will certainly be the team no one wants to face!
Whilst Billy Waters should feel hard done by dropping to the bench after his recent run of form, it allowed Connor to once again link up with Boden playing just behind the striker. He won the penalty and was pivotal in the build-up for the second. It does seem to be the Welshman’s preferred position and if it brings performances like that one, long may it continue.
