One`s pain is another`s gain. When Josh Dacres-Cogley was given the nod ahead of a Paul Caddis on Saturday, it must have felt like a huge gain.

Making a breakthrough at your club when two experienced and seasoned pros are ahead of you in the pecking order and both vying for the berth is a tall order. Dacres-Cogley was fully expecting to be loaned at the start of the season. Indeed, Gary Rowett was expecting to loan him out. The fact he is still here and around the first team picture is a credit to his progress and exemplary attitude.

The aforementioned pecking order has since changed. Caddis has been told that he sits at number three behind Dacres-Cogley and first choice Jonathan Spector – but feel free to stay and fight for your place. Like it or lump it, basically. Caddis is a hero with Blues fans, mainly for gazal says:

In fairness Caddis wasnt 100% match fit on Saturday so I doubt he would have made the squad, but Cogley must be impressing the management to have made the bench again. Being able to come on and play in his own position rather than cover another position in a tactical change has done him the power of good.

  • Three weeks ago I commented that Cogley should get preference. He is quick,very quick,skilful and young. Yes he may be a bit naive at times-but my advice to Zola is play him and play him and play him.He will be our next high valued asset.
