Young forward Tyreece Onyeka came off the substitutes’ bench to make another positive impact against Nottingham Forest. Onyeka’s persistence and pressing saw him steal possession and set up a really good opportunity to possibly win the game in the closing stages but the former Academy youngster just couldn’t quite execute the final pass through to his strike partner Chris Porter.
It was another eye catching performance from the youngster, who has scored goals in pre-season against Nantwich Town and Kidsgrove Athletic.
Boss David Artell has been pleased with the impact he made once again with his pressing.
Artell told the club’s official website: “The most important thing is that we didn’t suffer any injuries and we managed to get some minutes into the lads who possibly need some minutes, the Shaun MacDonalds and Chris Porters of the world.
“It was a chance for Josh (Lundstram) to come on and get on the ball and Ty to make an impact again as a substitute. He probably should have scored or made that assist at the end to win the game. He can score goals.
The boss added: “He showed that at Nantwich and he has to keep it going and having that sort of impact when he gets a chance.”
