There was some cracking entertainment on offer at White Hart Lane last night as our under 21s snatched a 3-3 draw from Aston Villa in their version of the Premier League.
At the heart of the action was Jonathan Obika whose double strike, along with a goal from Kevin Stewart secured the point. Aside from the two goals, the striker was busy all night and turned in an impressive overall performance – albeit at a lower level.
Obika has been around the club for a while now and was given his first chance in the first team in our recent League Cup match with Carlisle. In his time at the club, the player has had eight loan spells including four at Yeovil without ever recording a prolific spell in the lower leagues.
While it may be too early to throw Jonathan in to the first team, maybe a final loan spell would be a good option to see if he really is maturing into a capable striker.
