Shola The Unsung Hero

Roeder: 'Shola should not have been out there. We kept it a secret. He picked up an ankle injury in training and he had no chance on Thursday.

'It just shows the character of the lad and the spirit in the team.

'I am delighted. While I didn't want to sound cocky or arrogant before the game, I was always confident of a display - and a result - like that. I could just see an improvement on the training ground as the week wore on.

'Some of our passing was sloppy last week. The movement wasn't there - but it was this afternoon. We got right at them from the off, and the two goals from Shola put us in a great position by half-time. They had to run at us and get the ball off us after that, and in that heat we made it tough for them.

'I was pleased to see Emre get his goal at the end - all in all it was a good afternoon for us.'

I think if Shola picks up where he left off at the end of last season, theres no reason why he couldnt be a 15 goal a season player, 20 may be a bit optomistic but anythings possible.
