Missed out once again with cracked ribs but should return for Sheffield United next week
In line for Preston debut in tonights televised clash versus Newcastle United
Was not selected in matchday 18 for Hull's game with West Ham
Played up front with Leroy Lita as Middlesbrough drew 1-1 with Nottingham Forest. According to Boro supporters he looked unfit but showed glimpses of skill and talent and won headers aswell as linking up play and was described by some as 'the man who we've been looking for in the last two years' whereas other were less than impressed.
Played on the right and was isolated and unused as Cheltenham frequently used the left hand side for their attacks. Fans were left stating on Cheltenham forums how underused he was and how he cannot do anything unless his teammates pass the ball to him but when he did have the ball he showed great skill and desire, making it even more strange that he wasn't used more.
Splitting the Blades fans as after playing the full 90 minutes and getting a clean sheet on Saturday. A lot are saying he should be sent back to the Potteries and that he is a liability who gives away foul after foul needlessly but some say they can see an improvement game on game and that he is improving as his fitness does. Gave away a penalty on Saturday but it was weak and easily saved as the Blades kept another clean sheet.
Capped a solid performance with his first ever senior goal when his 20 yard free kick won the game for Barnsley in the 94th minute of their clash with Cardiff. Whilst not getting the same level of praise as Shotton the Tykes fans are praising his wonderful grit, determination and will to win, amazed at the commitment they are getting from a loanee
Another great display from the defender as centre back as he kept a clean sheet and won the man of the match award yet again. Barnsley forums are full of people begging the club to sign him up and accroding to them he is a Premier League player and a future England star
