Matavz is quite a pacy player, as well as having a good first touch and finishing ability. Set to run onto the ball, or have the ball played to his feet, he is sure to impress. Another strength he has, is his young age. He will get much better if played regularly and scored 30 goals for Stoke in 53 appearances in the Championship, but his potential could lead to him being a good Premier League striker in the future.
He is not the best at tackling and doesn't have very good determination. His biggest weakness is his poor set piece abilty, most notably his awful Penalty taking.
