Kuszczak: Play-off race looks so tough

The Argus: Tomasz Kuszczak at full stretch against Burnley on Tuesday Tomasz Kuszczak at full stretch against Burnley on Tuesday

Tomasz Kuszczak reckons it will be tough for Albion to finish in the top six again this season.

And he has warned it could be even harder to achieve the Premier League dream next season. Kuszczak, 31, told The Argus: “This season I think is more difficult than last season. There are teams who are really strong.

“We’re not talking about four or five teams, we are talking about six or seven who are really strong.

“Clearly the top three have got more points than the rest, of course, but the rest are close. We have to keep playing and I think everything is open for us.


“There’s a few games left and we have got a few players who are going to be back.

"Mackail-Smith is going to be back, Hoskins is going be back. We are going to have more strikers.

“We are going to have more offensive power. This will definitely help the team collect points at the end of the season.”

More strikers and more offensive power I would agree but will we use them. Do ee continue to play wijth a loan isolated Ulloa; who by the way must be so frustrated, or do we show some intent and have 2 strikers.
We cand play 4 at the back with a diamond (wide) formation allowin wing play and 1 defensive and 1 attacking midfielder.
Get the goals and sub accordingly or if only 1 up mid way through the second half the play the 1 up front.
Oscar prefers the 4-3-3 but that is made up of only one striker and 2 wingers but we have not played that way fpr a while.
We had a couple of chances at burnley with shots on target where we should have scored and yes the hit the post twice however only JFC got forward.
I would like Augustian in the attacking mf of the diamond between 2 strikers so we will get 2 or 3 in the box when Solly/Lua lua or David gets crosses in.
A couple of signings would be nice but only if a lot better than we have got and I think realistically that will be difficult.
The players need to believe and as much as I like Kuz, he is already paving the way for mid table by stating it will be tough.
If players believe that but are positive of a top 6 finish then I would be hap as long as they go for it.
No safety play now and no going away set up for a drae.
