The size of the circle reflects the total of Expected Goals for each player.
- Clearly the Rangers attack was revolving around the chances taken by Kenny Miller, Martyn Waghorn, & Jason Holt. They accounted for 59% of Rangers shots, 76% of Rangers Expected Goals, & obviously 100% of the actual goals.
- The decision to take Gedion Zelalem off at the hour mark, rather than Jason Holt, was clearly driven by Rangers need to get a goal with the score tied 1-1. Holt has become the most reliable secondary scorer in the squad.
- The need for a goal made the switch of Nicky Clark for Miller a bit baffling. Nothing against Clark, but Miller was getting high quality chances & he has finally found that finishing touch. All season long the chances have been there for Miller & now the goals are coming back. Of course, fatigue (or anticipated fatigue) may have been the deciding factor & that may be indicated by the fact that Miller had gone 20 minutes since his last shot when he left the game.
- Again you see the best chances coming from the trio of Kenny Miller, Jason Holt & Martyn Waghorn – with Waghorn’s impact being dictated by volume of shots & Miller’s by the quality of his chances.
