Cywka is a very good player, but we won't see him until we're safe


Recommended Posts

TOMASZ Cywka has impressed in his first week at Derby County and manager Nigel Clough is keen to hand the young forward a start before the end of the season.

Cywka was an unused substitute against Leicester City last weekend after he signed on loan from Wigan Athletic and the Polish under-21 international is expected to be on the bench again for today's game away to Coventry City.

The 21-year-old is seen as a Kris Commons-type player.

He operates just off the striker and filled the role for Derby's reserves at Port Vale on Monday.

The Rams lost but Cywka showed some neat touches and good vision.

"Tomasz is settling in and he has had a few good days training," said Clough (left).

"Technically, he is a very good player. His touch is lovely and his finishing is very good indeed.

"In training, you sense the other players sometimes realise when you get somebody in with a lot of ability. They realise it straight away.

"I thought he did OK for the Reserves, especially first half.

"He plays just behind the striker and drops off and looks for the ball, which is exactly what we were looking for with Kris Commons not being available."

Two games in three days this Easter weekend against Coventry this afternoon and Ipswich Town on Monday gives Derby a chance to take another big step towards safety in the Championship.

Once safe, Rams fans could see Cywka start.

"It is unlikely he will start at this moment," said Clough.

"It would be lovely to get him a couple of games when we are safe.

"To throw him into a Championship game might be too much to ask of him at the moment."

Cywka, who joined Wigan from Polish club Gwarek Zabrze in 2006, has made just two senior appearances for the Latics, both in cup competitions.

He played five times during a loan spell at Oldham, four of them as a substitute.



Sorry but Daveo the thicko doesn't understand this, we have a Kris Commons style player that Clough describes as being "very good", but we're not playing him until we are safe? whats the fecking point of having him then?.

If he's looking for next season then why not wait until pre-season and get him in on trial with a view to a loan.
