Iwelumo move confirmed

Gary Johnson – manager of Bristol City – today confirmed that Bristol City will loan Chris Iwelumo on a 28-days emergency-loan to start with. He is expected to make his debut today against Sheffield United. McCarthy’s good friend Johnson says in an interview published by This is Bristol:

I’m delighted to be able to bring a player of Chris Iwelumo’s quality and experience to the club. Mick always said he would let me know if any of his players became available, and he was good enough to tip us the wink on this one.

Chris will add vital experience to our strikeforce and provide a presence up top as well. He is one of those unselfish players who can do a job for the team and helps take some of the pressure off the other strikers. He is very good in the air and is strong enough to hold the ball up. In fact, he is exactly what we need right now. We have managed to bring him in on a month initially and we will take it from there.

Well. I hope he gets a lot of match training and that he scores and assists to a lot of goals. And that he comes back to us fully fit for the count down of the season in a months time. Good luck against the Blades today, Big Chris!
