I think that's the key point. Our current defence is probably just about okay for a mid-table finish so long as we keep scoring at the other end. If we want to push on, however, we're a million miles away from the required standard.
Could anyone on here imagine a club at the top end of League One wanting Canavan, Wootton or Aimson? Same goes for Watts and Opoku. They might take them as squad players, but we use them as regular starters and that's why we're where we are.
As I've said before, it's been so long since we've had a proper centre-back that I think we've forgotten what one looks like.
