'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Loan watch: Davide Somma

We take a look at how our striker Davide Somma did on his debut for Lincoln City in League Two.

The 24 year old signed for Lincoln on Friday on a one-month loan deal.

Somma has already enjoyed a loan spell away from Elland Road this season when he made three appearances for League Two side Chesterfield earlier in the season before injury forced an early return to Leeds.

With first team chances limited at Elland Road the loan spell with Lincoln will surely help him get more accustomed to English football.

The South African striker went straight into the Imps team for their game on Saturday against Crewe at Sincil Bank and he made a dream debut when he scored within the first minute of the second half.

Somma picked up the ball just inside the Crewe half; he closed in on goal before unleashing a superb right foot strike from 20 yards out to give the keeper no chance.

Somma is also likely to learn quite a lot working with former Blackburn and England striker Chris Sutton who is now the manager at Lincoln during his loan period.

He completed the full 90 minutes and he will surely get better as his fitness improves with match practice during his time at Lincoln.

The striker faces tough opposition next week when Lincoln travel to table toppers Rochdale.

Seen the goal, a fantastic strike from the edge of the area. The run of games will do him good and scoring on his debut will surley fill him full of confidence. Will be very interested to see how he does during his stay at Lincoln as he's done very well for Leeds reserves but not really got a sniff of first team action at Elland Road. If he enjoys a good month at Lincoln could Grayson be keen to use him in the run in for Leeds or is he destined to be another Grella?

The goal was a cracker and needed a high level of skill. I think he has a good touch for a big man and this goalk should do him the world of good. I bet hes tired though after playing his first 90 min game.
erni

kimbo

I hope he does well at Lincoln, still can't see him getting much of a game though when he returns to Elland Road.
