Donaldson ran the channels well last night & showed great strength outside the area. His chest control was brilliant. He also put in a couple of decent runs down the touchline turning the defence. His pace was frightening the fullbacks. He missed some chances in the 2nd but overall he ran his socks off AGAIN.
Terrible conundrum for UR as Donaldson's game is fantastic in pretty much everything APART from his finishing.
His control, pace, hold up play, running the channels, harrying, pressing (most of the time), heading and crossing is first class. He can also score wonderful c=goals but he cannot be relied upon to score a reasonable percentage of easy chances.
I have seen the early miss at Bournemouth, he must have taken his eye of the ball a sit seemed an easy nod into an empty net.
That might well have cost us the extra 2 points.
I see no easy solution as I cannot see Hayes and Farid as a viable partnership at present.

Hayes looks like he's carrying some timber to me
