PATER­SON’S A FOR­EST FLIER

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

AN­OTHER player we liked the look of was Jamie Pater­son, cur­rently fly­ing for Not­ting­ham For­est.

Mick Jones, my old as­sis­tant, used to watch him reg­u­larly when he was at Wal­sall and re­ally fan­cied get­ting him on board. He was a right will o’ the wisp, and still is – there’s ab­so­lutely nowt on him. But he’s so di­rect and doesn’t give de­fend­ers a minute to think, prob­a­bly be­cause he al­ways knows what he’s go­ing to do next ei­ther.

When you’re fly­ing high like For­est, he’s a bril­liant player to have in your side.

And he’ll al­ways be on the end of chances, which is why he’s got seven goals this sea­son. For me, he’s got to be up there as one of the sign­ings of the sea­son.
