    Don’t rate Hutton, awful defender, no better going forward. Should be sold on. Bacuna’s been much better in a position not even his. He’s at least not caught out of position, hiding in his own 18 and doesn’t always cross from 20 yards too deep and still hits over everyone.

    Hutton is OK as a tackler, and quite tall for a full back so competent in the air. However that is when he is in position. It is his poor sense of danger that leaves him up-field after going forward with the ball. Instead of thinking ‘job done’ and scooting back to the back four, he hangs around in case the ball comes back to him. There are teams, and we meet one on Sunday, who made a point of exploiting this.

    I agree, Hutton is a decent tackler, but can be reckless. Even so, I feel he stiffens us up in the RB area, when he’s actually there.
    As OLL suggests, he’s too often caught out in the middle of nowhere, but this is down to instruction, imo.
    Bacuna is a better crosser, but a worse defender overall.

    Neither are good enough if we want to push on and we could do with a better RB, which will of course cost a few mill.
    Hence I don’t think much will change in this area.

    I thought Hutton started the season well, but seems to have regressed to what we had previously seen under McLeish of late. As said already – he is often caught out of position and doesn’t seem to put enough effort in to making up for his errors, in my opinion I would definitely invest in a new right back. I’d rather see Bacuna played as an attacking player – he is a great crosser of the ball and can pick out a pass.
