WEALDSTONE'S prowess at free-kicks helped sweep aside Heybridge Swifts 3-0 last weekend yet boss Gordon Bartlett insists it is an area they should do better in.
James Gray somehow found the net with his set piece from all of 55 yards while Ryan Ashe's sublime second half effort put the icing on the cake after Greg Ngoyi had made it 2-0 at the interval.
However, despite the comfortable victory, Bartlett says his side should be scoring more from set pieces, given the height of some of his play-ers.The likes of James Gray, Alan Massey, Chris O'Leary and Davis Haule are no shrinking violets and Bartlett wants them to use their imposing frames more when the ball is launched into the box.
"It's an area we should do better in with the quality we've got in the side and the aerial ability," said the Stones manager. "Our first goal was a little bit fortunate as the keeper misjudged it in the wind. I don't think James Gray was meaning to score from 55 yards, as much as I would like to think he could do that, whereas the third goal was a quality free kick."
Bartlett wants his taller players to attack the deliveries of Ashe and David Hicks, plus Lee Chappell's long range throw-ins.
"We've got a massive weapon in Lee Chappell's long throw, Ashe and Hicksy have excellent delivery while we've got a few big lads in the side that should cause opposing teams more problems from free kicks," he added. "But due to training facilities we have very little time to work on them."
