Support your local team: Rangers v Livington preview


Recommended Posts

The performance was probably our worst of the season. So many misplaced passes, a lack of movement from our middle 3, our two wingers didn't get into the game at all.

 

I would put a lot of the above down to our opponents work rate and tactics, where they gave up half the pitch and chased down everything in their own half in packs. If one of our players got past a man, they were either fouled or crowded out. They delayed the restart at all times and retained possession better than anyone we have played to date. Frankly if they played this well every week they would be challenging for second but I will be betting on them getting a heavy defeat next week, no matter their opponent, as it is very evident this was cup final football from them today.

 

It is credit to Livvy for their negative but effective tactics and we need to sharpen up when faced with these tactics, as we will probably see a lot of it this season and beyond.

The best teams in the world frequently have lackluster perfomances for exactly the same reasons, but they have players in their side who can produce a moment of inspiration that sees them through, as long as the team are on the front foot.. Stand up Lee Wallace and Martin Waghorn.

Why were we not able to do it in previous seasons then? Because it was normally us under the cosh due to utterly inept management and tactics.
