Jackson Aiming for Repeat Performance
Tuesday, 12th Mar 2019 12:28

Blues striker Kayden Jackson will be looking to emulate his impressive second-half display at West Brom when Town face Bristol City at Ashton Gate this evening.

Jackson, 25, came off the bench as the Blues drew 1-1 at The Hawthorns and put in what manager Paul Lambert said was the striker's best performance since he came to the club.

The £1.6 million summer signing from Accrington was also pleased with the way the game went for him, although rues missing chances which could have secured the Blues all three points.

“Against West Brom was one of the first times in a while where I actually enjoyed being out there on the pitch and I think that showed in the way we played against a team that are fourth in the table,” he told the club site.

“We probably deserved to win. If I’d taken one of the chances I had, we would have done.

“Whenever you have a decent performance, you have to look to take it into the next game and that’s what I’ll be doing if I get the opportunity tonight.

“I thought I did okay against West Brom but not well enough because I didn’t get the goals that would have won us the game.”

Jackson looks set to start this evening with Collin Quaner having limped off at half-time at West Brom.

Don't worry Kayden. You wont always have Chambo screeming at you for missed chances.
Then you'll have the confidence to show us what you can do.

I think we can all agree that in general our performance this year has been below par hence the position we find ourselves in. Enough of stating the bleeding obvious!!

However, PLs input here epitomises the gulf in character between him and his immediate predecessors. He has give the guy plaudits for a good quality display on Saturday and spurred him on for future performances. He may not have the best game tonight nor the rest of this season but he has a manager there that is backing him publicly and that must be a much better atmosphere to work in. In PL we trust!

I'm sure KJ would accept that he hasn't performed as he would have liked. (I personally think he has many of the attributes eg blistering pace to be a top player). COYB

I think Kayden could be terrific for us next season in L1.
I'm the most excited I've been for years and we are bottom. Berger strange!!

Not surprised the poor bloke snatched at the chances, he only gets a few minutes on the pitch every month.

Jackson has much potential - will be a huge season for him in League 1.

In fairness, Hurst's signings are now showing the potential that he could see in them. We will now benefit from several of his signings - problem was he was between a rock and a hard place - save from relegation, or build for the future. Some of his other traits may have been questionable - but his signings are no duds.
Credit to the guy where it's due.

whoa whoa whoa blueboy - Donacien?
Also -showing potential is not performing well enough to get into a championship team is it? If we were staying in the championship next year, you'd be saying they weren't good enough, so unless Hurst was planning for life in League 1 then no, no credit due for his overpriced signings

Rugbytomc - don't know why you have been marked down? You make a good point about PH?
I think Kayden has not been given enough opportunity by PL but I hope he takes his chance tonight and I agree with most on here that in league one he should be our leading goal scorer.

Rugbytomc ......... Donacien is another with potential, play him in his rightful position - good player.

Signings for the FUTURE - don't you understand ?

ITFCsince73 added 18:30 - Mar 12
Blueboy. I very much understand. And have been saying it most of the season.
All Hurst signings will turn out ok for us.

rugbytomc added 08:59 - Mar 14
blueboy - you're missing the point, but that's ok.
