88% pass accuracy: Stoke player’s performance gives Jones something to think about

Published

on

Tyrese Campbell scored his first league goal for Stoke City on Saturday afternoon, as the Potters moved off the bottom of the Championship table with a 2-0 win over promotion-chasing Fulham at the Bet365 Stadium.

The 19-year-old opened the scoring for Stoke in the 16th minute, latching onto Lee Gregory’s flick before racing through and coolly slotting past Fulham goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli into the bottom corner.

Gregory made it 2-0 with a penalty ten minutes from time, as Stoke recorded back-to-back victories for the first time under manager Nathan Jones.

Campbell was making only his second Championship start of the season for Stoke and to score his first goal in the competition should give his confidence a huge boost.

In the latest FLW Spotlight, we take a closer look at his performance against Fulham by analysing some of his stats from the game…

Campbell was making his second consecutive league start for Stoke and he played for 76 minutes before being replaced by Scott Hogan.

The striker made an immediate impact and showed the composure of a seasoned finisher, when he coolly slotted past Bettinelli to give Stoke a deserved with his first Championship goal. He also had two other attempts on goal and both of them were on target.

This leaves him with a shot accuracy of 100%, which is obviously something he’ll be very pleased with, although he might be slightly disappointed that he couldn’t bag himself another goal to justify him keeping his place in the side.

His passing stats were also rather impressive. He attempted eight passes and was able to complete seven of them, leaving him with a pass accuracy of 88%.

A lot of these were short and simple passes, but he still only gave the ball away once, so you imagine that’s something he’ll be very pleased with.

Will Stoke City make it three league wins on the bounce against Sheffield Wednesday?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Campbell also completed three out of his four dribbles – most impressively when he latched onto Gregory’s flicked header before racing past a defender to score.

He generally was very good on the ball and this is another aspect of his performance that you imagine he’ll be pleased with.

Campbell also put himself about up front and was involved in eleven offensive duels. He was able to win six of them, leaving him with a success rate of 55%.

There’s plenty of room for improvement here, but it doesn’t take anything away from the fact that this was a very good all-round performance from the striker.

This was without a doubt Campbell’s best display for Stoke so far this season and to score his first Championship goal should give his confidence a huge boost.

He’ll be determined to kick on from here and will be hoping that he did enough to impress Jones and keep his place in the side for when Stoke travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.
