A Cloughy Soldier

Reports are claiming the John Brayford deal is nearly complete. A player that has worked with Nigel Clough at Burton and Derby, he was named in the 2009/10 League Two team of the season, also with a Derby Player of The season award (2010/11) under his belt, it would appear to be the caliber of player we have been screaming for all season. The twenty six year old plays at right back primarily and is known for bursts of pace and versatility. Composed and professional Brayford could be an ideal replacement for McMahon who risks becoming a liability with the clearances straight to opposition players and habit of losing the ball. I think like previous loanee Aidy White his versatility will give us greater options and depth to the team, he has been known to take up roles on the right of midfield and at centre half when it is required of him. With very few experienced players in these positions it would be a great boost. I hope that this deal does in deed go through, as alongside the impending acquisition of Scougall we would have picked up two very talented players to help us in the dog fight at the bottom of the table in which we have found ourselves involved with.
