TOWN have some new set-piece trickery up their sleeves for 2005.
Manager Peter Jackson unveiled two new moves in Saturday's derby defeat to Bradford.
One, a free-kick for Pawel Abbott involving tactics to distract the opposition, failed miserably and almost led to a breakaway goal for Colin Todd's side.
But the other move, a neat corner-kick between Tony Carss and Chris Brandon, caught everyone on the hop and almost paid a massive dividend.
Carss touched the ball out of the D and then trotted away while beckoning Brandon to take the corner.
Carss waved his arms and shouted to distract more defenders, while Brandon simply headed towards goal for a shot!
"It's something I first saw years ago and which we've picked up once again," said Jackson today.
"It almost worked, but we've got a few more tricks to use this season as well."
Carss revealed he'd tried to work the corner with Jon Worthington at Oldham.
"I nudged the ball out of the D and started to move off before realising that Worthy was heading in the opposite direction!" he said.
"The crowd were on my back, so I just jogged back, put the ball back in the D and pretended nothing was wrong.
"It didn't work completely against Bradford, but I reckon it will pay off for us at some stage this season, when we need a break."
