Jake searching for the right position

JAKE Wright made his senior debut at left back for Town in Tuesday's impressive 1-0 win at Kidderminster.

But he is not certain whether that will be the position he finally settles into as his career progresses.

The 19-year-old, on a month's loan at the Shay from Bradford City, looked at home on the left side of defence.

And he played his part in the Shaymen's first away win in six months.

But he admitted: "I don't think that I have really found my position yet."

"I enjoy playing left back, but I have played most of my football at centre half," he added.

"Obviously I would have played anywhere on Tuesday to get into the side."

Wright had played just five minutes as a substitute against Tamworth before Tuesday night.

And he admitted his first start had come out of the blue.

"I was surprised when I discovered I was in the team," he said. "But I have confidence in myself and just went out to do my best.

"It was a lot more competitive than any football I have ever played before.

"I found it hard in the last 20 minutes because I had not played a competitive game for a while.

"But I just kept going and in the end I really enjoyed it.

"To win was great, to keep a clean sheet was good as well and hopefully we can back it up with another win on Saturday."

Wright's first start was made more comfortable by having a familiar figure in front of him on the left hand side.

Assistant manager Wayne Jacobs was the youngster's coach at Bradford City last season.

"He was in charge of the reserve team at Bradford last season so I know him well and it was good to play behind him," said Wright.

"He is a great talker, but the rest of the lads are as well. It is always good to have experienced players around you."

Town boss Chris Wilder will be checking on Lewis Killeen and Jacobs at training today after both suffered knocks at Aggborough.

He is resigned, however, to being without Gary Brabin for a couple of months after the midfielder underwent an operation on Tuesday to clear up a knee problem.

Brabin will not be allowed to do anything for four weeks and faces a further month's rehabilitation after that.
