Lewis Knight's role this upcoming season

Lewis Knight played as an out-to-out striker for Bradford Park Avenue but is able to play on the wide as an attacking forward. With his pace, I could see Ian Burchnall choosing to play him in the Enzio type role - encouraging him to cut inside. However, I feel he would be better playing up top and I think this is where he would be more useful.

We've only seen him a handful of times, the performances from the team wasn't the best but I actually rate the lad.

He moves around the pitch well, looks for pockets of space and with his speed - he'll naturally attract players to mark him. If Notts gives him more game time, I fully believe he will start to find confidence and in the process start finding the back of the net.

How do you view Lewis Knight's role for the upcoming season?

I think he should automatically take the place that Jimmy Knowles occupied last season, if we bring in one more striker. It would be between Elisa Sam and Lewis Knight to be the backup, both could do a job on a rotational basis.

Knight looks good to me, he just needs to be in and around a winning team.

Out wide or upfront, given the time and chance he should be able to find the net. If we use his pace to scare teams, he could prove to be a difficult player to defend against. I do hope the lad gets more game time this season.

I think he will.

I think people keep forgetting about Lewis Knight when they talk about strikers, we have Kyle Wootton, Elisha Sam, Tyreace Palmer and Knight.

One more striker would be a good call, someone more natural on goal but speed isn't the issue Notts has. It's 10-15+ goal scorers. I think Knight could get a few next season, perhaps even 8 in total but it all depends on if we play him and how he copes.

He needs to be in and around the first team, anything less wouldn't do.

I don't understand the discontent shown towards Elisha Sam, he clearly took time to get up to match fitness last season and players can only get that properly when they play regularly. I think he has a chance to showcase his talent, otherwise I can see him leaving.
