“In that, I spotted two Under 23 players who have been out of action for a while with injuries.

“Their names are Dermi Lusala and Max Robson and they are both very highly rated by the club.

“It was noticeable to see them selected above some of the others to train with the first team.

“That was great to see and hopefully they can get back to full fitness and are able to continue their development in the coming weeks.

“It really is great to see younger players getting that experience with the first team. It’s a huge boost for them.

“I have to say, it’s brilliant to see. That kind of thing is invaluable to young players.

It gives them the hunger to push on and try and make a name for themselves.”
