Lofty ambitions

Ugo Ehiogu believes there is much more to come from prolific young goalscorer Ryan Loft.

The striker, just 18, marked his first start for the Under-21s with a fine goal in our 3-2 win at Norwich City last week.

That took him to nine goals in 11 appearances at Under-18 and Under-21 level so far this season.

Ryan will now look to add to that tally as the Under-21s take on Liverpool in the Barclays U21 Premier League at Stevenage this evening (Friday, October 23).

He drew praise from Ugo after his display at Carrow Road - played out in front of 7,000 fans and live on BT Sport.

"Ryan took his goal brilliantly," said coach Ugo. "I don’t remember him having a lot of joy with the ball throughout the game but that’s Lofty, he can have a mixture of touches and involvement in games from everything to nothing but he’ll always have a chance and always seems to find the net.

"That’s a fantastic habit to have and he can get so much better. Hopefully this will give him the belief because that has to come from him."
