GW33 Review

Player of the Week

Michael Morrison

Morrison claimed 15 points in GW33 and made it 4 goals for the season as Reading won 1-0 away at Rotherham. Reading have conceded only once in their last 5 away matches with Morrison claiming a goal as well as a clean sheet in 2 of those matches. It’s no suprise to see this kind of return from Morrison from the CB position and post match he stated he always sets himself a target of 5 for the season. He has a great chance of doing even better by the end of the campaign.

Morrison and Reading will be looking to take their impressive recent away defensive record to the Madejski in the next 2 GWs as they face Blackburn in GW34 and Sheffield Wednesday in GW35 at home, however Reading have lost their last 3 home matches conceding at least twice each time. 

Team of the Week

Preston

The Preston team bagged 72 points between them in their 3-0 home win vs Huddersfield.

It was only Preston’s 5th home win of the season and they will need to improve on their home record significanlty if they are to make a push for the Play-offs. This win was encouraging though and if they do start to perform as well at Deepdale as they have away from home this season then there are Gaffr points up for grabs in their side. 

Scott Sinclair at 6.0 in midfield and currenlty on 123 points looks the stand-out asset as they head into games against Millwall, Bournemouth and then bottom of the table Wycombe. 

Let down of the week

Swansea

Swansea have been one of the best defensive rocks this division has ever seen however their 3-1 loss at home to Bristol City made it 7 goals conceded in their last 3 games. 

The Swans have Stoke at home up next followed by a double in GW35 vs Middlesbrough (H)  and Blackburn (A). Roberts and Bidwell will likely remain valuable assests with their attacking threat however it’s a pricey looking double up if the clean sheet numbers start to regress and could be something to assess the other side of their double gameweek. 

My Moves This Week. 

With Ivan Toney back earlier than expected and scoring at the weekend it’s probably essential to get him straight back in the team. Lucas Joao has looked a little off it in his last couple of games and should be off penalties after his 3rd miss of the season vs Wycombe in GW32. With Puscas and Meite now back fit for Reading it wouldn’t be a shock to see Joao rested a little in the next 2-3 weeks so Toney in for Joao looks the move for me to make.
