“He’s struggled with injuries since he’s been here - he’s never really been physically right.

“It’s a sad one, because he is a lad who could have been handy in this situation, but he can travel well with the ball.

“He looked really bright when he first came in, but I just think certain players can be put off by certain things.

“There was almost too many players here, and that’s when it becomes a bigger challenge, when you can’t see a way in.

“It’s how you respond to that – and I’m not saying that was the case with Marcus, because he had his injuries.”

“But that doesn’t make it any easier for a young player to come in.”
