Here I will have a look at how our full backs have performed throughout the first two months of the season.

Chris Gunter- 8-

Gunter is the only senior Right Back at the club and has played every minute of every game in all competitions. Chris is one of the most reliable defenders in the league and also causes problems going forward. He had a pretty poor season last time out, but has really started this season impressively. Hopefully he’ll keep up this form given he’s our only Right Back.

Jordan Obita- 9-
Jordan Obita is another players who didn’t reach his best ability during last season. However, the youngster has started this season fantastically. With Obita formally being a wide midfielder, he has top attributes for going forward and Clarke has made him into a quality defender. I feel the biggest reason for Obita’s upturn in form is due to the arrival of Andrew Taylor as his back up. This has really pushed Jordan and made him play for the shirt.

Andrew Taylor- 7-
Taylor was one of the eleven summer signings and as said above, he was signed as back up for Obita. He made his first start and only league start at Sheffield Wednesday and he put in a solid performance. Andrew has also been used in the Capital one cup and he was my man of the match against Everton after hardly putting a foot wrong. He’s a perfect number two to Obita and is more than capable of just slotting straight in if Jordan doesn’t perform to the right standards.
