Linganzi and Basturk shine

Linganzi and Basturk shine

New boys Yildiray Basturk and Amine Linganzi both made a mark in the reserves last night during a 3-0 win over an inexperienced Wigan side.

Basturk was the star of the show again at the top of a midfield diamond and was the main creative spark.

And fellow newbie Amine Linganzi set up two first-half goals for Maceo Rigters before scoring the third himself to round off an impressive night.

To complete the good news there was even a Vince Grella sighting - which is now considered on a par with an eclipse!!!

Good news all around.

More minutes for Basturk, good stuff! Two surprises there though. First off 2 goals for Rigters and then 2 assists and a goal for Linganzi! Only reserves but it's good progress..

I wonder what it has cost so far, playing minute by playing minute, to employ Grella?

could be good, grella is solid defensively and this will give basturk the freedom to go forward.
