|Croft Straight In Tue 21st Sep 1999 16:18 |
Gary Croft today completed his move to Town after a rigorous medical in London last night. After several figures had been bandied about the fee was revealed to be £800,000. Croft is primarily a left-back, but he has also been known to play on the right or in midfield. If he starts tonight it will be interesting to see who George Burley leaves out and where Croft plays. Town are rumoured to be experimenting with a 4-4-2 formation this evening which could see Croft come into the left back position and Jamie Clapham go into a left-wing role. Saturday's penalty villain Manu Thetis is likely to miss the game with George Burley publicly criticising the Frenchman's 'gallic temperament' after the Birmingham game. If Town do continue with the 5-3-2 formation they have used up to now it seems likely that Wayne Brown will continue, having replaced Manu at half-time on Saturday.
