  • Hang on! That looks like two goals from long corners? Is that from Smith’s against Walsall? Surely Smith’s first against Shrews came from a short one? Hmm? Bias against short corners are you? Typical.

    • I counted the goal versus Walsall as a route to goal via a long corner as the defense didn’t clear the ball and everyone stayed around the box.

      The goal versus Shrewsbury was a short corner.

      I think the other goal coming from a long corner was Nile Ranger versus Shrewsbury
