The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PHILIP Billing ended up a 5-1 loser in mid­week but his dis­play im­pressed at least one on­looker – the Pre­mier League’s all-time top goalscorer, Alan Shearer.

Dan­ish mid­fielder Billing, 20, looked com­fort­able, de­spite Hud­der­s­field’s heavy FA Cup re­play loss at Manch­ester City.

His all-ac­tion dis­play drew praise from Match of

the Day pun­dit Shearer. “He was bril­liant,” said Shearer. “It’s one thing play­ing at the level he plays at, but to come on this stage now live on tele­vi­sion and play the way he did, against the play­ers he played against, was su­perb.”
