After finally getting on for his debut, it’s been a manic few weeks for Nile Ranger for both club and country, getting huge chunks of pitch time for NUFC and England. Having played against Huddersfield, Leicester and now Cardiff, Nile looks set to play again at Bloomfield Road tomorrow night.

His solo efforts up front have been well appreciated by teammates, fans and the coaching staff alike, with Chris Hughton saying:

‘It’s a good education for him. He’s coming up against very good central defenders, and most definitely he hasn’t had it all his way. It’s a tough introduction, but he’ll certainly be better for it, and what he hasn’t done is let anybody down.

He’s looked a little tired, and he cramped up a couple of times towards the end of the (Cardiff) game, but he’s had the ability to go again.’
