St. Johnstone vs County 20/03

In the games Draper has started for us under Hughes (and in his time under Hughes at ICT) he's often been used as an 8, with license to go forward as a Soucek/Fellaini style berserker. Look at the previous game v St Johnstone as an example of this, where Draper managed to score after picking up a 2nd ball in the box- interestingly it's a role he also sometimes frequented under O*** C****, but never under Ketts/Fergie. In Hughes' first few games where we played 4-1-4-1 it was Vigurs who was deployed as the 6, a role he resumed today during the 2nd half. I wouldn't rule out a return to that shape going forward (partly because it's difficult to rule out Hughes trying pretty much anything schematically), but again I'd anticipate it being Vigurs stationed immediately infront of a back 4

I seem to remember Draper being very handy in that role for Caley- his size caused huge problems when he rumbled forward.


A dreadful performance from County. Not quite Owen Coyle level, but close. St. Johnstone didn't even need to play that well to beat us.
