    A lightning fast striker who had worked his way through the national age groups he was loaned about by Newcastle to enable him to mature. A huge success at Coventry he was glad to re-unite with Tony Mowbray at the Rovers after having a frustrating start to the season at Bolton. Utilised wide on the left it was  not the career path intended for him by his club and so he was recalled in the hope that another club might utilise him in a more prescribed manner. He initially proved a scoring sensation with the Rovers displaying remarkable  aplomb in front of goal although his prolificacy waned towards the end of the season and did not re-emerge during the following one. His position remains  an enigma as he continues to be employed in a wide position rather than his preferred central one.
