AFTER Matty Palmer’s recall from Oldham Athletic earlier on in the week, manager Nigel Clough has described him as a new signing as the Brewers are fighting for promotion.He had a good run of games whilst on loan with The Latics. He made 14 appearances and scored one goal as they battled at the other end of the league table.
"I think now he's had a good run of games in League One, he's match fit and he's done well at Oldham," said Clough.
"He's pleased to be back, fighting for promotion, and he comes in as a confident player and he's like a new signing.”
After the Brewers could only name six subs against Scunthorpe it looks as though Clough will have a healthy bunch to choose from come Saturday when Barnsley are the visitors at the Pirelli Stadium.
Hamza Choudhury will return from his one-match suspension whilst Robbie Weir, Anthony O’Connor, Tom Naylor and Calum Butcher should all be fresh as well as the addition of Matty Palmer.
Clough said: "It's good because we've got five or six good central midfielders to choose from."
The manager also believes his set-pieces will be a threat, something the Brewers haven’t scored many from this season.
"His set pieces are very good as well. We've struggled (with set-pieces) of late.
"He can create goals and he can make them.”
