Alas, this problem is blatantly demonstrated by the respective minutes played and goals scored statistics relating to the forwards who have been recruited this season:


Fisayo Adarabioyo

Minutes: 456.
Goals: 1.

(Unfortunately for him, the 1-0 victory at Dover Athletic has been expunged from the records, thereby halving his goals tally).


Nyal Bell

Minutes: 69.
Goals: 0.


Jacob Blyth

Minutes: 79.
Goals: 0.


Max Clayton

Minutes: 7.
Goals: 0.


Montel Gibson

Minutes: 88.
Goals: 0.


Byron Harrison

Minutes: 476.
Goals: 0.


Jamie McDonald

Minutes: 71.
Goals: 1.


Joe Piggott

Minutes: 442.
Goals: 0.

1,688 minutes, 2 goals. It makes Peers look positively prolific.

Hulme's decision to jump ship on the eve of the  season looks even more disastrous in hindsight. Of course there's no guarantee that he would have been as prolific at this level. We've not had his goals and he's not had any football.

This all highlights what we all already know, including Parky, that our problem area is a quality striker and lack of goals...

It is hard to find a good one during a season as most will be under contract if any good (plus any furloughed by clubs probably picked up if decent)... hopefully this will be addressed in the summer close season by Parky & the Board...

So it takes him 462 minutes to score in the League. I'd tend to take no notice of the Cup goals as they weren't scored against clubs at our level.

If he came on after an hour every game, we could expect 3 goals a season.

League: 1386 mins 3 goals
Cup: 251 mins 3 goals

Obviously, Nyal Bell is the most prolific proven National League striker we have, since he's scored 3 for Halifax this season, and 6 for Stockport last season. Which is why leaving him on the bench simply doesn't make sense.

In a season where we're not going to be promoted or relegated, In my opinion I think it's best to play the striker who will be playing for us next season. Piggott hadn't played much before resigning for us so giving him minutes is the best option for me.

Bell will almost certainly be deemed surplus to requirements at Stockport - especially if they end up being promoted - therefore if there's a goalscorer in there, we've had a perfect chance to push ourselves to the front of the queue.

The alternative Alty website 'The Alty Files' has this piece...

THE ALTY STRIKE RATE

This week Phil Parkinson has publicly called on his forwards to be more effective in front of goal and the following table indicates the squad's current strike rate in the National League.

Including the now voided game against Dover Athletic, Alty have scored 38 goals in the league this season to date. On average they net a goal roughly every 80 minutes.

Discounting the five penalties netted by Josh Hancock, that leaves 33 goals from open play in 34 games. These have been scored by the following players...

Jamie McDonald 1 goal, or a goal every 70 minutes on the pitch - striker
Dan Mooney 2 goals, or a goal every 255 minutes on the pitch - winger
Fisayo Adarabioyo 2 goals, or a goal every 262 minutes on the pitch - striker
Ryan Colclough 5 goals, or a goal every 276 minutes on the pitch - winger
James Hardy 1 goals, or a goal every 347 minutes on the pitch - winger
Josh Hancock 6 goals, or a goal every 393 minutes on the pitch - forward
Tom Peers 3 goals, or a goal every 460 minutes on the pitch - striker
Ritchie Sutton2 goals, or a goal every 539 minutes on the pitch - defender
Yusifu Ceesay 3 goals, or a goal every 561 minutes on the pitch - winger/striker
Matty Kosylo 3 goals, or a goal every 745 minutes on the pitch - winger
Jake Moult 2 goals, or a goal every 1,416 minutes on the pitch - midfielder
Connor Hampson 1 goals, or a goal every 1,445 minutes on the pitch - defender
Toby Mullarkey 1 goal, or a goal every 1,597 minutes on the pitch - defender
Alistair Smith 1 goals, or a goal every 2,088 minutes on the pitch - midfielder

Those who have played 400+ minutes but have not scored at all in the league are the following:

Joel Senior 2,751 mins - defender
Tom Hannigan 2,555 mins - defender
Andy White 996 mins - defender
Billy Sass-Savies 532 mins - defender
Byron Harrison 479 mins - striker
Sean Williams 478 mins - midfielder
Joe Piggott 442 mins - striker
Shaun Densmore 434 mins - defender
Simon Richman 418 mins - midfielder
Regan Oagle 408 mins - defender
