Thought Doidge did pretty well yesterday and Shankland did well with the little service he had. The question for me is would Shankland have scored more than the single goal given Doidge's opportunities. I think he might. Doidge's miss/Keeper's save late on was a good example. Doidge was so slow taking his shot and allowed the Keeper to close the angle. I think Shankland scores that and possibly gets a touch on Kamberi's strike. We won't be buying Shankland as we have missed the boat and I hope Doidge keeps scoring and also performing as he did yesterday.
Shankland wouldn’t have taken the touch on his chest to set up his late chance. A real bit of quality from the big man, likewise his touch near the touchline earlier in the game, the big man’s got it.
I thought he was quiet yesterday too, though did take his goal very well.
I wouldn’t judge him on one game against us though.
It was the same against Hearts earlier in the season in the league cup. Scored the opener that night but was anonymous the rest of the game. He is a pure poacher, which isn’t a bad thing but he’s not the sort to create chances himself out of nothing, the supply needs to be there for him. He reminds me of Jamie McLaren who was sensational with Barker, Boyle, Allan, Kamberi and McGinn working to create him chances but looked pretty blunt without them.
