I was worried Wheeler might get concussion, so often was this tactic deployed....
Wheeler tended to flick the ball on rather than meeting it full force with his forehead. Not sure if that's better or worse for the long term, but presumably less of an immediate concussion risk.

Ben's movement and positioning in the build-up to the first goal was spot-on and if the defender hadn't intervened there is every chance we'd be talking about what a well-taken poacher's goal Ben had scored.
That also looked like a handball from their player. Added to that, he would have scored off Williams cross had the defender not done so for him.

Wouldn't have minded him here on a 1 year deal. Pretty quick for a tall guy and seemed liked in the dressing room. Had double the goals per game (0.49) than Amond too (0.25)...........

Jeeez. He’s a top bloke and worked hard but let’s face it, he was never going to be a regular scorer plus he seemed to pick up number of injuries whilst here. And Amond has a far far better goal scoring record over his career.

He'll play as many matches for them as us I guess, good luck to him, wasn't the worse, but Amond such an upgrade.
