183 minutes per goal: The lower league hitman that could be a bargain signing for Ipswich

Published

on

New Ipswich Town boss Paul Hurst will be gearing up for a very busy summer as he looks to build on the work that Mick McCarthy did at Portman Road.

The former Shrewsbury boss is expected to change the style of play at Ipswich and will look to make his own mark on the team by bringing in several new players.

Hurst has often looked for young, hungry players when recruiting and could continue that with the Tractor Boys. And, one man who should be on his radar is Forest Green Rovers’ Christian Doidge.

As our graphic shows, he was a prolific scorer in League Two last season, handling the step up from non-league with ease and his form suggests he is ready to play further up the leagues.

His goals per minute ratio is very impressive and that coolness and clinical ability is a positive trait that suggests if he gets chances he will finish them. The fact that only one of his goals came from the penalty spot is also another good sign, highlighting his contributions in open play.

As well as that, the 25-year old offers more than just goals, with five assists to his name and he is also capable of linking play and bringing others into the game.

Ultimately, Ipswich won’t have a budget to match many of the Championship, so instead Hurst will have to be smart in the market and Doidge could be a potential bargain to kick-off his reign.
