Robbie Brady is our loan star this week as he scored the winner during Hull City’s 2-1 triumph at Watford on Saturday.
The 20-year-old netted a fine 25-yard free-kick to ensure his side secured an important win that lifts the Tigers up to fourth in the Championship, within three points off the automatic promotion places.
After extending his stay at the KC Stadium until the end of January, Brady has got a taste for first team action and wants to savour more, whilst revealing his admiration for temporary boss Steve Bruce.
“I’m really enjoying it,” Robbie told the Hull and East Riding paper. “I love coming out to play football and there’s no better place than doing it here with my mates. I’d love to carry on after January.
“The manager is great. Everything is in order and everyone knows what they’re doing. He’s been there and done it. Everyone knows what he’s done in his career.
“He’s been an unbelievable player and he’s carried that through into management. His record shows that and hopefully he can add another promotion to his tally this year.”
It’s not going so well for fellow Hull loannee Ben Amos who was once again left out as manager Bruce opted again for new loan signing David Stockdale with Eldin Jakupovic on the bench.
Joshua King continues to impress for Blackburn Rovers after the Norwegian striker netted a consolation strike during a 4-1 defeat to Cardiff City on Friday night.
The rest of our loannees were twiddling their thumbs as no football was to be played. Michael Keane was not in the squad for Leicester City’s 2-2 draw at home to Burnley while Jessie Lingard was an unused substitute.
Similarly, it was a quiet weekend for Reece Brown, John Cofie and Sean McGinty after all three were left out by Coventry City, Sheffield United and Carlisle United respectively. In Belgium, Luke Giverin and Gyliano van Velzen were both frustrated after Royal Antwerp’s second division clash with White Star Woluwé was postponed due to bad weather.
