Preston striker Robinson full of praise for 2-goal Man City whiz Nmecha

Preston striker Callum Robinson is full of praise for Lukas Nmecha.

The on-loan Manchester City forward scored twice in the 4-0 defeat of Ipswich Town.

Robinson also scored twice and said: "Lukas has been doing really well as a team player but the goals weren't really coming. So it was a great to see him scoring against Ipswich, he did well for them.

“He's a really good player, he has got a bright future – I'm really looking forward to seeing how he does when he goes back to City or wherever he goes next.

“He is a good lad, it would be good to see him back here again.

“From where he was when he walked through the door to what he is now, there is a big difference.

“We all knew he had the ability but what he does for the team now is great, he stretches the play, comes short, he has learned so much.

“He has the ability to play at the top."

“It is Lukas' first loan, he is young lad who has come in from Manchester City.

“City are a massive club and he's come to one with different facilities and different players. You are playing with men who want to get to where City are, it is not the same as the Under-23s or 21s.

“On the pitch he has developed in a whole-round player.

“Lukas has pace and is strong but it is that game understanding, when to stretch the game and that sort of thing, which he has learned."
