Kieffer Moore has proven to be a handful to come up against for both club and country but it’s led to the striker picking up a number of bookings for Wales – and now the striker has told Mail+ he will have to ‘adapt’ his game.
The forward burst onto the scene with Barnsley and was quickly snapped up by Wigan, who continued to benefit from his goalscoring exploits. Now plying his trade for Cardiff, he has continued to plunder the goals on a regular basis and has become an important figure for the Bluebirds.
With his aerial ability, hold-up play and work-ethic, he’s established himself as one of the most proven goalscorers in the EFL and has since become a prominent force for his national side to boot.
Have Cardiff City had a higher or lower average attendance compared to these 23 sides this season?
However, Moore has begun to accumulate a high number of bookings and it has led to him sitting out of games for both his club and country. He’s had one booking already for his club this season but most recently had another for Wales, meaning he will miss their next qualification fixture.
The striker is now growing increasingly annoyed at sitting out on the sidelines through suspension and has claimed he will ‘adapt’ his game to be able to feature more regularly. He told Mail+: “I am super-conscious every time I go for an aerial challenge and head it. I just get my body there and mentally try not to do too much.
“It does take some getting used to. In internationals, referees never really give you too much leeway. It is about adapting to that.”
The forward then will be looking to change his game so that he doesn’t pick up as many cards – but Bluebirds fans will be hoping he doesn’t alter it too much, to the detriment of his goalscoring record.
Kieffer Moore is a handful for any EFL side and most countries that he will come up against. He is your stereotypical targetman and works the ball well when he has it at his feet.
There is always a chance as that kind of player that you will pick up bookings – it’s in the nature of the game. However, when it starts to impact the amount of action you get, Moore is right to feel he should change slightly to avoid having to sit on the sidelines. If any player is capable of producing regularly whilst toning down the yellow cards though, it’s the Welsh striker.
