Good luck to the lad - after yesterday's 6 goal haul he's proved he has an eye for goal, at least in the Championship/League 1

Made his debut after 63 minutes against Birmingham.
They were 1-0 up and that's how the game ended as well.


Obika - 6 promising debut, showed pace and ability to hold up the ball. Could be a good Barnes replacement
Obika 3. Too soon to say. Beaten for strength, pace over 5 yards and awareness, by central defenders who would have been knackered in comparison.
Obika 6 Looks pacey, but got to get used to the way we play, so hope given game time unlike Lita

I'm going to Derby vs Brighton on Saturday. Will keep an eye out for him, although I doubt he'll start.

Ulloa is a cracking striker for the Championship and I think they play 4-3-3

Came on with about 15 to go after the Derby goal, didn't really do anything. Had about 5 touches and being shoved on the right of 4-3-3. He could have scored as he got in behind the defence but tried to bring it down when a header was probably the better option

Game was awful and Brighton hoofed it a lot when in decent positions so was difficult for him to do anything

Jonathan Obika ran through to round goalkeeper Chris Neal and seal the win with 12 minutes remaining.

Last goal for Brighton in a 3-1 win in the FA Cup v Port Vale, played 90 mins, his first start after 2 off the bench
