Never seems to have a goal threat in him in my opinion..
Touch like a baby elephant.
Managed 1 goal in about 7/8 games is it? Wins a lot of headers but never seems to get many chances, certainly not as many as he was getting (and scoring) with Rovrum. I do like having a forward who can win a few headers though after watching Bradders struggle for half a season.
He’s been good so far. Works hard and creates space for others. Perfect foil for Mcburnie.
Scored against Burton, outstanding against Birmingham including an assist and very close to a goal from a corner, led the line well against Hull but I can’t comment on tonight’s performance as I didn’t see the game.
Perhaps it’s just his presence that allows space for others. Think he would’ve scored tonight had Gardner not nipped in withst header he put wide. Moore looked like he was just teeing up to hit it. He seemed so frustrated with Gardner.
Haven't made it to any of the recent away games so it's hard to comment. What I have seen of him he does work hard and offer a threat in the air. As others say if he can occupy the centre backs it should help others find space. We don't really have any other options at the moment short of sticking Bradshaw back in.
I think he's done well in recent games but looked lacklustre tonight. Won very little.
Doesn’t seem to win headers in key areas. Not a big threat in attacking areas.
He has something more than just physical presence but at the minute doesn’t have the quality to trouble Championship defences. He needs to work both on his hold up play and positioning. A work in progress but a decent signing.
Drops deep more than I'd like and trys dribbling and loses possession too much.... Needs to stop up top win headers and bring others into play more!
Gives us a target up front. Better than Bradshaw. Needs to improve his touch a bit but a good signing. Would have scored yesterday if Gardner hadnt of nicked his header
To be honest, I'm a bit worried that neither him nor Thiam have started scoring yet, even if other play is good.
Edit. I realise each have scored one goal.
Yep .. 3 forwards and 2 don't score, Great, hope McBurnies run keeps going..
He certainly won a header in a key area when he set up the second goal at Birmingham , great knockdown . I think he is a work in progress but offers great deal of promise for the future
He's doing the heavy lifting, and taking pressure off McMessi.
Not one single bloke in the side, apart from McBurnie look like scoring......
I really rate the lad. It's about time we have a proper target man.
The lad certainly adds physical presence, which we've lacked for goodness how long. If he can start grabbing a few goals, like he did at Rotherham earlier in the season, it'd take some of the weight off McBurnie's shoulders and help the team in the final run in.
I'll give you that one - not a bad return from 6 starts, 3 sub appearances and one goal to his name.
