Norwich City’s on-loan midfielder Jacob Butterfield is enjoying a fresh lease of life at Championship club Bolton.

The 22-year-old inspired Dougie Freedman’s side to a midweek 2-1 derby win at title contenders Blackburn. He is yet to feature on the losing side for the Trotters after moving to the north-west on an emergency loan until December 8 in a bid for regular first-team football following an injury-hit start to his Norwich career.

“Personally, during my time here, I hope to get more wins and get more points on the board for Bolton,” he told Wanderers’ official site. “I have really enjoyed my time here so far. I have been really impressed by the club as a whole. They are a great group of lads and I have really enjoyed playing here.

“Coming to Blackburn, the local derby, and putting on a performance like that and getting the win was fantastic. With the kind of players we have, we should be right up there. We are confident that we can put on this kind of performance and get a real good winning run and move up the league. I am sure that by the end of the year we will be right up there.”

Trotters’ boss Freedman would be interested in a potential loan extension for the talented playmaker, but admits Norwich counterpart Chris Hughton calls the shots.

“That’s entirely up to Norwich,” he said. “The deal was a month and the ball is right in their court now as to what they want to do. The deal was a month to give him some games, and the more he has, the better he will get, I’m sure. But it’s in their hands now as to what happens from here. He’s been training very hard and I think Jacob is a young man who’s got a terrific career ahead of him, provided he applies himself properly. Like I say, the more games and game time he gets, the better he will become.”

  • CH knows exactly what he is doing, 8 games unbeaten proves it,maybe armchair supporters like mad Brewer should keep it shut!

  • I think wisemanthree has a theory about multiple identities, Pa. Do you like oxymoronica? Try this one; I live at the posh end of Stalham. ;-) Are you a near neighbour of Alan Partridge?

  • By playing a predominately left footed player on the right and right footed player on the left we seem to trade quality & quantity of crosses coming in for the possibility that either player will cut inside and score. Since the scoring thing hasn`t happened (yet) we should go for Pa`s Chevron approach. Roeder seemed determined to muck Hucks about, Pa, as finally evidenced by the way he dumped him out of the club. I often wonder whether his experiences at WHU & Newcastle rendered him an embittered man? Hoots` treatment @ Toon was diabolical but our man radiates his own form of gentle sunshine. Nobody`s the same...... Bring on the Chevron!! OTBC.

  • It's trying to snow, and I've nothing better to do than sit on here. These managers have far superior ideas about the way the game should be played than us lesser mortals.... In my humble opinion though, I feel that to play Snodgrass on the right and Pilkington on the left is like wearing expensive shoes on the wrong feet.

  • Just got in from plucking pheasants. Bloody cold on the fingers!.....At last like minded people are taking centre stage on here. I have said from the word go that Snodgrass should be playing on the LEFT wing in my Chevron formation, with the choice of Pilkington or Bennett on the right. They all fit comfortably into that set up, and would be playing in their proper positions. Remember Huckerby didn't play so well when friend Roeder put him on the right wing.

  • I find your final sentence spooky, Doc. `Cos that`s exactly what I think too! So we`re both right - (or wrong). Also a 20 minute bit of Cinnamon might be fruitful, as appropriate? I bet our old pal Lobbo concurs with the Little Benno scenario. Not! Also, where does Howson fit in?

  • Pa got any spare pheasants ? Sprowston nothing wrong with that, nice little golf course too. and i agree its time to get little Benno on the park to provide a few good crosses, if only to gee up the other 2

  • I'd like CH to find a way of giving players like Howson, Elliot Bennett, Fox and Butterfield some game time over the DecJan period (plus a new striker in Jan). We need to keep some breadth in the squad!

  • I agree with Pilks swap in some games where he isn't doing much. Bring Benno on earlier and get him on one side and Snoddy on the other. Howson will only be a sub at the moment with Wes doing well. Shame he couldn't put his chance against ManYoo away, but luckily didn't matter in that game

  • It's perennial problem of football managers. We all have our favourite players, in my case E Bennett, R Martin and Foxy but the team is now unbeaten for 8 games. Just imagine the ordure dumped on Hughton's head if he changed the formation to give one of my favourites a chance. Mind you on evidence of last few games perhaps he could give Pilks a rest, put Snod on the left and bring in Little Benno.

  • Just read your December 1st contribution Brew. I think we should make it abundantly clear to all and sundry, that we are NOT one and the same person. I reside in Sprowston - the posh bit. That's bound to get some 'sarky' comments!

  • Btw, while he`s in Lancashire, young Butterfield is spending some time at The George Formby Foundation on a "Learn how to Smile" course.
