Jim Magilton hailed on loan striker Francis Jeffers as ‘outstanding’ after the striker found the net on his full debut at Hull last night.

‘Franny was outstanding and a real threat. He will always score goals at this level.’

‘I was absolutely delighted with his performance. He was the outstanding individual for us and has real quality.’

‘We are always on the look-out for quality and we have been lucky that Blackburn have been doing so well because Franny found himself fifth striker there.
‘He gets one chance in this game and takes it – and that’s the difference. We felt like he could give us something extra and are fortunate to have him.’

‘To score five goals away from home was fantastic. The first 20 minutes we were on the back foot and Hull deserved to go in front – I was not particularly happy with the first half performance, even though we were winning.’

‘There were good performances all through the side. Alan Lee put in another great shift for us, Danny Haynes came on and scored a terrific goal and his pace caused them problems.’

‘It was a great night’s work but we’ve now got to build on that – tonight was a game to be dogged but we felt we could isolate their centre-halves.’

‘They have worked really hard lately to turn things around and tonight they have transferred the football I have seen on the training ground into a performance and we now have to build on that and look forward to Saturday and Southend.’

  • At last a quality striker who can score and can remind the others what to do. What chance Jeffers joining permanently? We dream on!

  • I wish Southend could get such players on loan.Unfortunately we are an unfashionable club.I am looking forward to the game Saturday.I will be travelling up with my brother and was just needing some help on an away friendly pub.Cheers
