Injury forced Liam Lawrence to miss the Forest win and the man, well kid really as he is barely a man, that replaced him against Forest was Abdul Razak.

On the evidence of that showing I cannot say that the Man City man will keep Lawro out.

That said right midfield is not Razak’s position and Guy Whittingham, talking recently, knows this: ‘Razak’s not used to that position on the right but he did okay. He is a young lad learning his trade but you can see some of his quality.’

I think ‘he did okay’ best sums up his performance really…

Right midfield is not Razak’s position, although nor do I think it is Lawro’s strongest position anymore either, with both more suited to central roles but out of the two Lawro would be the best option.

Razak did show some good touches and played a few fantastic defence splitting passes so there is ability there, this just needs to be used in the right way and on the right side of midfield is not that.

A central role, perhaps with a little freedom, is where I would think we would see the teenager shine – and I do hope he does get another chance as he has unquestionable ability that it would be good to see us benefit from…
