Alan Knill has said that Daniel Sullivan was one bright spark in the game against Portsmouth.

On what was otherwise a rather miserable night for manager Alan Knill in our first round Johnstone’s Paint Trophy game against Portsmouth, the manager picked out the performance of youngster Daniel Sullivan who put in rather a bright performance on the pitch.

Speaking to the Official Site after the match finished, the gaffer said of the youth Academy product who was making his home professional bow.

‘We put him on at wide left, which isn’t really Danny’s position, so we had to adjust Elliot Benyon’s position to put Sully in behind the striker.’

Knill adds that that Sullivan is a player who’s nice and bright and he offers us something slightly different, especially with his youthful exuberance. The problem was with the overall performance, we didn’t pass the ball properly so it kind of nullified his threat playing behind the striker, but when he was on the ball he thought he was very impressive and certainly didn’t do himself any harm in terms of getting games again in the future which is all you can ask of youngsters making their first strides into the team really.
