Iím not a fan of zonal marking but youí canít blame zonal marking for Port Valeís goal. Smith didnít do his job itís as simple as that.
Smith didnít do his job in a zonal marking role and Amoo drifted into space knowing no one would go with him . Basic stuff

The header was inside the 6 yard box, should have been keeper's ball.

Iíd have to see it again but my instant reaction was that (like last week) it was an outswinger which the keeper would have struggled to claim and that Harry Smith for 2 weeks running has lost his man.

The goal against Walsall was an out swinger headed in close to the penalty spot and Harry Smith was the nearest man. The goal against Port Vale was inside the 6-yard box, Chris Lines was the closest man, but I still maintain it should have been the keeper's ball.

Harry Smith has apologised for not picking his man up for the goal on Saturday so I think itís fair to say that he has been culpable for both of the goals we have conceded so far - Iím not a big fan of zonal marking but when people make individual mistakes it doesnít matter if youíre zonal or man to man. On the subject of smith heís going to need to settle himself down a bit, while Iím completely sympathetic that heís been given nothing by the referees in both games he needs to be ďcuterĒ and not put himself in a position to be penalised (also known as the akinfenwa effect where the ref just sees his size and automatically assumes he is constantly fouling).

Just watched the goal and you're right. He takes about three steps away from Arnold to the six yard line and has an unchallenged header. If we had man marked and Arnold commands his six yard box, that wouldn't have been the so easy.

Got to agree with this assessment. Wonder what the general assessment of the goal would have been if Cornell had started?

It was Cornell's fault for not getting picked.
