I suppose this is the best ringing endorsement that the manager made the right call.

A lot of talk in the buildup to the game against Millwall surrounded who was going to play at centre-back; captain Harlee Dean after his comeback from suspension, or on loan defender Jake Clarke-Slater who had been playing in the skipper’s absence.

In the end boss Pep Clotet went with the latter and the decision paid off, as the defender scored the equaliser during the 1-1 draw on the weekend. So not only was Clotet’s decision justified by him getting on the scoresheet, but there was one other accolade that came the defender’s way, as he was named in the EFL Team of the Week.

In light of his award, Blues journalist Brian Dick asked fans about their impressions of Clarke-Salter so far this season, and the fans were full of praise for him.


Would you make Clarke-Salter's deal permanent?

Yes

Yes

No

No

If he keeps this up, perhaps we can think about turning that loan deal into a permanent one at the end of the campaign.
