Loan Watch: Emyr Huws nets stunner

Loan Watch: Emyr Huws nets stunner
Emyr Huws scored a stunning strike from 35 yards as he continues to impress in a Birmingham shirt.

The senior Wales international has made 12 appearances for the Championship side, scoring twice and recording two assists.

Unfortunately, his goal could not prevent the St Andrews outfit going down 3-1 to Middlesbrough last Tuesday, but he has won plaudits around the game for his strike.

“Emyr Huws looks an absolute class act at times. That goal he scored at Middlesbrough, you will not see a better one,” raved manager Lee Clark.

Meanwhile, the Mirror declared: 

The stars of the Champions League may have dominated the headlines this morning, but none shone as brightly as Emyr Huws did for Birmingham last night.

“It wasn’t enough to prevent Brum from suffering a 3-1 loss to Middlesbrough, but the young Welshman’s stunning effort was undoubtedly the highlight of the match.”

Watch and judge for yourself!

Albert Rusnak was not involved in Birmingham’s trip to the North East.

In the Premier League, Gareth Barry clocked up another 90 minutes for Everton in their 1-0 win over Sunderland at the weekend. The midfielder turned in a typically accomplished performance to help the Toffees leapfrog Arsenal into fourth place.

What a player Gareth Barry is. Just saying. #EFCSAFC

George Evans started Crewe’s clash with Wolves and played the first 45 minutes, but unfortunately was the player sacrificed in the reshuffle after the Railwaymen had a man sent off.

The Alex went down 2-0 to high-flying Wolves, who secured their promotion to the Championship, leaving Crewe in the relegation places.


On the continent, Karim Rekik was suspended for PSV’s 2-0 loss to Feyenoord.

Meanwhile, Eirik Holmen Johansen was an unused sub for Sandefjord in their 1-0 league loss to Fredrikstad. The young keeper has not yet made a competitive appearance for his loan side, but the Norwegian season only kicked off at the start of this month.  

John Guidetti was also an unused sub in Stoke’s 1-0 win over Newcastle, as the Potters aim for a 10th place finish.

Scott Sinclair was not involved in  West Brom’s thrilling 3-3 draw with Tottenham, but his manager, Pepe Mel, had plenty of words of encouragement for the winger as he continues to fight for his place.

Mel told the Birmingham Express and Star: “He is an intelligent and professional player. 

He’s been slightly unfortunate in the games in which he’s come on, because things haven’t worked out well for him. But he’s definitely got a future.”

He added: “We’re all playing for our futures in six games. If he continues to work as hard as he is now, then he’ll have no problems in becoming a great player.”

Alex Henshall played no part in Ipswich Town’s 2-1 win over Doncaster.
