Bingham Could Play Key Role In Survival Bid

16 March 2016

Midfielder Billy Bingham returned to first team action as a second half substitute against Gillingham at the weekend and followed that up by completing 90 minutes for the Development Squad in our 4-1 win over Birmingham City on Monday.

Bingham last played away at Swindon in mid-January and the former Dagenham and Redbridge man has been limited to just 14 appearances in his debut season for the club mainly due to a troublesome hamstring injury.

Steve Davis is delighted to have the 25-year-old midfielder back with us for the last ten games of the season and he admits that his versatility to play in various midfield roles may see him play a key role in our survival bid.

Ahead of this weekend’s clash with Blackpool, Steve told “It is good to have Billy back with us because he can play various roles for us in midfield.

“He can play the deep midfield role or he can push on and get in and around the opposition box. He came on at Gillingham and played deeper and that allowed Jonah to push on and try and link up more with the forward players.

Steve added: “I would not be afraid to start him. He has come back from his hamstring injury and looks stronger for it and the runs out he has been getting for the Under-21s will only have benefitted him.”
