I'm seriously worried for our campaign, outplayed in two and half games out of three. Against Hull, I was thinking a better team would destroy us, lo and behold Leicester did. Very lucky to get a point never mind three. I know it can get better but the team has to be set up right to do it, and Kean's such a plank I can't see that happening. I thought 4-2-3-1 was quite interesting from Kean but then he sticks Lowe on the right wing, he looks poor out of position and leaves us with nothing either wing. I'm trying to take encouragement from the fact that he seemed to learn and swapped Bruno with Lowe, though this could have been accidental genius because Bruno had no positional discipline at full back? Got my tickets for Leeds, I don't think our extra quality will be enough on it's own.

'Goal Attempts', 'On Target' and'Corners show that we rode our luck. A team that has 57% of possession, should have more attempts than their opponents. We need to improve our 'Attempts on Target' before our luck runs out. Just 1 every 20+ minutes is not good enough. No automatic promotion on these showings, despite 7 points out of 9
