THE HUGHTON VIEW
It certainly hasn't taken him long to make an impact here! I would have to say from seeing what I have in matches and on the training pitch, he is one of the best finishers that I have come across and one of the best I have had the pleasure of working with.

He has a real eye for goal and, if you look at the type of goals he scores like against Blackburn, it was a real poachers goal. He is strong on his left and right, plus - I'm sure - will occasionally get in with the odd header.

It hasn't taken him long to settle in and there are bigger and better things to come from him.
