The main priority for Uwe Rosler was to get the strikers in our team scoring. He tried with Grant Holt, and well failed, the striker now heading out of loan to Aston Villa for the remainder of the season. Nick Powell has chipped in yet again when he is needed, and Marc Antoine Fortune has started to find his goal-scoring touch in the past week.
Nicky Maynard was a target for the club under Roberto Martinez, yet the player changed course and headed for West Ham United. Now we could be the team that could provide him with the chance to kick start his career, following his knee ligament damage last season.
The striker is close to full fitness and will hopefully add extra pace and a proven goalscorer at championship level. That is something that we desperately need, a player who can consistently score week in week out.
Welcome aboard, now show us what you can do Nicky.
