“Leon (Balogun) is excellent. He’s composed, he sees things a lot more quickly and senses danger, his reading of the game is excellent,” Cook told the club’s official website.

“We had to defend well today. I know we conceded two goals, but we came under a lot of prssure, so I’m really pleased for the lads and they can have a good trip back now.

      Na so life be. Considered useless at B&H. But at Wigan, his coach is describing him as “excellent”. Today, he looked fit, agile and composed. His usual dependable self. Anyway, no harm done. B&H is now an unpleasant distant memory. With regular games at Wigan, things are beginning to look up for Leon again.
