Keep making an impact Harry

Tony Mowbray was happy to see Harry Chapman get his first goal for the club on Tuesday night.

The on-loan attacker came off the bench against Rotherham United to strike five minutes from time to help secure all three points in a 2-0 win.

The manager was delighted to see his cameo rewarded with a goal, and knows that if he continues to impress off the bench, then first team starts are just around the corner.

"It is great for Chapman to score," said Mowbray.

"I know the fans are asking for him to start games and there'll be a spell at some stage in the season where he will.

"But at this moment he's a very young boy who is making an impact when he comes off the bench.

"I think it is best for our club, best for our team, that he does make an impact. Because we do need to solid and stay in football matches, and he understands that.

"He's not banging on my door every day asking why am I not starting, he's a young boy who is learning the game.

"Every body likes Harry, he's a fantastic kid. He's leaving away from home at such a young, delicate age. He is great to watch on the training ground.

"He has showed his talent, he has showed his quality, and when I turn round and we need something to happen on the pitch he is usually the guy I look at."
