The importance of set-pieces

25 September 2012

Danny Wilson was delighted to see a set-piece settle Saturday's contest at Huish Park.

Ten minutes into the second-half, Paul Gallagher's inswinging corner from the left was met with a bullet header from Neill Collins which left Glovers goalkeeper Marek Stech with no chance.

Of the goal and the importance of scoring from dead balls, Wilson said: "The delivery was terrific from Paul and you always know Neill will be looking to get in front of his marker and make good contact.

"Often goals from different areas can be the difference in tight games, especially capitilising on set plays."

With Michael Doyle and Ryan Flynn available again following three-match bans and Gallagher's impressive start to life at the Lane, claiming two assists in three games, the Gaffer added:

"There has been a bit of an imbalance in the team at times and we are always conscience of addressing those areas.

"The availability of Michael and Ryan gives us some food for thought now; hopefully everyone will be fit and available for Notts County on Saturday.

"We will continue to utilise Paul the best we can and if he is playing well then that will be brilliant, he knows he has to perform to retain his place."
