A Season in Statistics Player-By-Player: Kaiyne Woolery

The emerging youngster who has been given the most gametime this season, but how do the stats say he's performed?

Bolton Wanderers fans have been holding plenty of hope on the head of Kaiyne Woolery. The quick forward has had plenty of exposure to first-team football this season, but he's not really taken his opportunities despite getting an extended contract for next season.

Appearances - 17 (12 as a sub)

I was surprised that Woolery has made as many as 17 appearances. Late on this season he found himself confined to the substitutes bench, in favour of 96-year-old paceless, movement-devoid Emile Heskey as the lone forward. So that doesn't say much about how good Woolery is.

Goals Scored - 2

Woolery only managed to find the back of the net twice in 562 minutes of play this season. That's one goal per every 6.2 matches, in terms of full games.

Those two goals came in the space of three games, with the winner against Rotherham United and a late consolation against Leeds United. This suggested there was more to come, but he's now failed to find the back of the net in nine consecutive matches.

It's not exactly a prolific record, and he needs to work on his composure if he's going to make it at this level.

Review

Points won - 5 at 0.29 per game, in the draws with Charlton and Wolves and victory over Rotherham, not a very good return

Pass completion rate - 66.2%, higher than both Heskey and Gary Madine

Assists - 0

Bookings - 0

Red cards - 0

Overall Season Performance - D

Has threatened to do some great things, but eventually flatters to deceive. He's shown a real lack of composure at times, doesn't seem strong enough to play as a lone striker, and his finishing hasn't been good enough. His pace should be a threat in League One, so let's hope he can take the step down as a chance to build some confidence.
