Change of formation has (almost) kept us up

Mick admits that the change in formation during the middle of the season has played a huge role in surviving in the Premier League.

We started the season with 4-4-2, which had brought us a lot of success last season but Mick thought we were leaking too many and not scoring enough.

Since the change, we have been a lot harder to beat and picked up some crucial points.

'With 4-4-2, we had actually won at Tottenham and drawn at Everton but for the home game with Liverpool I decided to change to 4-5-1.

'It is a sign of madness if you keep doing the same things and get beat and we needed to be harder to beat.

'Everyone was telling me it should be done apart from the people at the training ground and the players who bought into it.

'But it is a fact that if you don't score a lot of goals and keep leaking them then it will be difficult to survive.

'Since we changed the formation, we have become harder to beat and Kevin Doyle has done a splendid job playing as the lone striker.'
