Long made available for Brentford's crunch game

by | 13/05/2015  Comments (4)  jump
Chris Long will be available for selection by Brentford manager Mark Warburton as they prepare for their crucial Championship play-off second leg match against Middlesbrough.

The Everton youngster was temporarily recalled from his loan spell with the Bees to play in the Blues Under-21s' fixture against West Ham last week but has been released again to the London side, providing them with a fully-fit squad for Friday's match.

In Long's absence, Brentford lost the first leg 2-1 and now face a difficult task to overturn the deficit at the Riverside Stadium but they will be buoyed by the return of the 20-year-old who has four goals in 10 appearances since joining them on loan.

A natural goalscorer and a possible replacement for Mirallas if he moves elsewhere. Impressed on the left wing pre-season.

Odd that he was recalled in the first place and missed their first play-off game but looking at his stats he wasnÂ’t making too many appearances towards the end, let alone making the bench with his last appearance being 3 April.

Started twice, been subbed twice and also made 8 sub appearances making 10 appearances in all. The fact he has 4 goals in a stop/start loan is a credit to him.

When did we become a feeder club for Brentford anyway?

Alan, I think it was as the U21s were in danger of being relegated so called him back for their last game which I believe is allowed for U21 players out on loan.

You're right, Pete, and he scored the first goal in the 2-1 win for the U21s. I like the look of him and hope he gets a season long loan similar to Patrick Bamford of Chelsea. It will be up to him to take his chance but IÂ’d love to see how he does in a full season for a decent championship club, could be the making of the lad.
