Big Sam Predicts Big Future For Junior
Rovers manager Sam Allardyce is feeling the love for youngster David Junior Holiett after his excellent cameo in yesterdays bore draw with West Ham.
Junior put in a great shift on right wing and came close to scoring twice. He also displayed some trickery and skill that was sorely lacking from Rovers yesterday.
Allardyce speaking to Sky Sports said - 'We have an exciting young lad in Junior,'.
'He played at Gillingham (and scored in Tuesday's 3-1 Carling Cup victory) and there is a bright future for him coming I think.
'But we don't want him to get too big-headed just yet and start getting carried away thinking he is this, that and the other.
'He is a sensible lad I hope. We'll introduce him slowly and develop him slowly.
'I think he showed enough to prove sometimes he can produce a little bit of brilliance.
'In that respect he is a little like Dunny (David Dunn), offering something that other players cannot which can open the door for you.'
Many people don't know but we have actually had Junior on the books since he was 13 and has always been held in high regard.
Treating him with kid gloves could be a good option as exposing him to the limelight too mcuh too son would damage him rather than aid the young man.
Keep it up whatever you are doing though Junior!!!
