Very much my thoughts too, with obita better at helping out defensively than some of our other wide playersAnd would we miss Obita's midfield play if we moved him backwards? I think we would.
On the basis that (however we have managed to do it!) the goals conceded column has recently been showing much smaller figures, I'd be tempted to leave the defence well alone (if possible depending on Atkinson's injury). Let's have a look at how to make the wide players and attacking midfielders get the ball to Taylor without booting it as his head - the more the ball is up front, the less pressure will be on the defence anyway.
