Correct. They also bring things to the table other than goals.
In Ice Hockey an assist is counted (stats wise) as importantly as a goal. And an assist is the last two players to touch the puck before it goes in. I wouldn’t be surprised if both of them would be double figures in “points” if football judged assists in the same way.
I didn’t like the way Mulhern went down too easily at least twice today (especially after getting hooked for it last week) but his lay off to Osborne and screening of the shot for our equaliser was top notch.
