    People are saying he has to do better take his chances but if his coincidence is low, which it probably will be then he will be struggling that way.

    Confidence is key for a forward and when they are confident they feel like every shot will go in.

    He made a significant impact coming on and playing with two up front is the key, remember when Larsson was here he had two other forwards to compliment him, Hooper had Stokes which meant one scored a lot more than the other.

    I am hoping we go with two up top from now on.

    It’s definitely confidence and composure but that chance was a golden opportunity to get his confidence up, you wont get many easier than that against a 10 man defence.

    If he played 90 I'm confident he would have gotten a goal.

    All the signs are there, but I do think he'll be 3rd choice once ajeti is fully fit, even if he comes up with a goal or two. Fortunately I can see us going two up top alot.

    I thought he could have done a bit better with that 1 v 1 but over all looks good and could potentially do a job for us.

    Seeing both him and Ajeti yesterday and how they played left me angrier about Wednesday night. Could have certainly done a job for us.

    I know but if you are that low in confidence even the easy chances get missed and the goal feels tiny.

    I just hope the lad gets more of chance than what Bayo got.

    Paddy offers us something different and we should be playing two up top.

    Lennon frustrates me with his use of subs and rotation like WGS would as well!

    All the signs are there that Klimala will get chances, his pace and work rate is brilliant and can stretch defences. He needs to keep scoring though to keep getting chances cause we all know Griff will score every chance he gets.

    be nice to start two up top and then have two other players chopping on the bit to get on.

    that sort of hunger will get us to the 10. Problem is will our manager utilise this.

    After yesterday and Wednesday it's clear our best formation is 352, Eddy should be fit for Ross County and Klimala/Ajeti should be ready to start as well.

    I think the issue Lenny has is having to drop 2 players out of Ely, Taylor, Frimp and Forrest to play the 352. So many options.

    I think his movement is excellent.

    The thing that does encourage me is exactly that. Every game he has played he has managed a chance or even more than one. With past duds that hasnt been the case.

    I think everyone knows he is a work in progress...ajeti is a more complete and experienced player so it's unfair to compare even if there is a minimal age gap.

    He is contributing enough to be the used in the 3-5-2, even though he still has room for improvement. Energy and desire are there. He needs to be coached properly to improve over this season. Being the 3rd/4th choice striker in a busy season playing 3-5-2 is perfect for him this season.

    Finishing and composure will come. Link up play can improve as he gets more minutes.

    If nothing else giving him game time will light a fire under Ajeti for the place alongside Edouard.

    He needs to keep working really hard on his tan. Sunbeds, fakebake, bronzer etc.

    Ajeti looks like he has that predator instinct in the box. His finish was emphatic. But I wouldnt write Klimala off, he works hard and if he works as hard in training as he did to get in shape, i think he will improve and force his way into lennons plans. I think he will come good.

    He’s worked hard already and didn’t start with Lennon preferring no striker, don’t think he’ll ever be more than a sub in Lennys eyes

    We know he has got himself into impressive physical shape, but nothing about his actual training performances. If he continues to work hard and apply himself in training, he will be given chances. And if he takes the chance then he could force his way into Lennons plans.

    The way he dragged those 2 defenders out of position to make space for CJ's goal showed the importance of playing a proper striker up top.
