    That is a curious stat. I guess we practice dead ball delivery but not so much the set piece defending.
    I do wonder how many of those headed goals are from set play or open play/ crosses etc. I never feel like we have a good success rate from corners in particular.

    Tonight will be a tough game. Always a tricky affair when a new manager is about to step in, seems to lift the team but we need to react in our own way to the NLD debacle.

    3-1. First goal a header. From a corner 🙂
