Austin is a better finisher, no doubt about it. He's the most natural finisher I've ever seen in a Town shirt.

However, I think Paynter is the better player all round - but thats down to 10 years as a pro.

Austin is probably better than Paynter was at 20 and when Austin gets to 25...

Agree and that was the point of my original post. What austin lacks can be learnt with good coaching and experience. 

Its the reason they work well as a pair, neither has any real weaknesses other than a lack of blinding pace. Paynter is better outside the box and is more effective in link-up play. Austin only needs 1 chance whereas paynter can be liable to miss a few at times. To be fair to him his finishng has been much improved this season as well, hence the goals tally.
