Dixon is targeted by teams every game due to McKinnon’s insistence on playing a narrow midfield, be that as a diamond 4 with 2 up top or a 2 and a 3 with 1 up top. This allows teams to double up on Dixon who in these formations is rendered pretty much useless. This due to the fact that he’s being asked to get forward top support the attack then back to defend. For me Dixon has struggled due to this. He isn’t a bad player by any stretch of the imagination and has played LB for Monday years. I personally think his best role for us would be as the left sided CH alongside Buchanan. We’ve seen next to nothing of Gary Miller who can play at RB, allowing Doyle to move to LB where he played a lot for Morton and Alloa. We have wingers (regardless of what our thoughts are on them) who have not been given the time this season to show what they can do in this team, most notably, Leitch, Moore and McLean. We have strikers who are struggling to get a partnership going.
