Possible Slot For Midfielder

Looking At Options

Boss Ståle Solbakken is looking at his options as Jamie O’Hara approaches full fitness after a six month injury lay off.

One possible slot for the midfielder, a position that the manager has been discussing of late, would be a role just behind a striker. 
Ståle said: “We have talked about that and maybe we have that player in Jamie.

“He can certainly play different roles; I’ve seen him play as an orthodox central midfielder and I’ve seen him play coming in off the left and coming in off the right with his left foot when he played for Portsmouth.

“Jamie’s a type of player who has a left foot which can do a bit extra; he can also play between the lines a bit more and add something to the other midfielders.

“He’s the type of midfielder we sometimes lack. But first of all, we need him fit.

“Kevin Doyle can play that role too, and with direct attacking players on the wings such as Razak Boukari and Slawomir Peszko, Bakary Sako is also a possibility to play in the hole.

“So that’s something to think of but we haven’t really got those options yet.

“It’s very important over the next four or five weeks to pick up as many points as possible, because we have something on the treatment table here to add to our strength in depth."
