The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Paddy von Behr

HE MIGHT have made quite an im­pres­sion on his Wy­combe Wan­der­ers de­but but man­ager Gareth Ainsworth says he won’t put too much pres­sure on young loa­nee Jer­maine Udu­maga.

The 20-year-old is on loan from Brent­ford and, af­ter com­ing off the bench as a late sub­sti­tute, played a cru­cial role in Wy­combe’s sec­ond goal in the 2-0 vic­tory over Craw­ley.

The young­ster was ini­tially set for a four-week spell with Ainsworth’s men but has re­cently ex­tended his stay and the man­ager hopes to see more mo­ments of magic from the star­let.

He said: “Jer­maine had a great im­pact. He picked out Garry Thomp­son with a really great pass, which is some­thing we want to see more of.

“The qual­ity of the squad is such that play­ers who come in on loan have to fight their way in, and when you get your chance you have to take it.

“He took some good touches. But he’s not just about the tippy tappy, he’s a clever player and he knows how to win a game.

“He’s an at­tack­ing player who has got one hell of a strike on him, but he’s still a young lad and we won’t be putting too much pres­sure on him.”

IM­PACT: Jer­maine Udu­maga
