VIDEO: Palace Loanee Sullay Kaiaki Scores Yet Again For Shrewsbury

0 Posted by - March 15, 2016 - News, Video

Crystal Palace academy graduate Sullay Kaikai is making a real name for himself whilst on loan at Shrewbury Town, having bagged another goal for the League One outfit last weekend. 

This highlights package shows Sullay Kaikai’s instinctive close-range strike from Saturday. It moves him on to seven goals for the season.

Following what was a cagey opening 20 minutes, it was Sullay who opened the scoring at Greenhous Meadow, capitalising on a mistake from the Scunthorpe keeper by swivelling on the loose ball six yards from goal before smashing it into the roof of the net in nonchalant fashion. 

The Shrews were to keep the lead until the 69th minute, when Kyle Wooton slotted home from inside the penalty area for the visitors, followed just nine minutes later by Paddy Madden who looked to have secured a complete turnaround for Scunthorpe after jinking one way and another inside the box before finding the back of the net. 

Shortly after that, Sullay was replaced by Andrew Mangan, with the game looking to be slipping away from Shrewbury’s grasp in disappointing fashion after performing well for so long. 

There was to be late drama though as Akpa-Akpro found a 90th minute equaliser for Micky Mellon’s side after a searching free-kick found its way into the bottom right-hand corner, sending the home fans into raptures. The draw leaves them nine points clear of the drop zone with 10 games left to play. 

Let’s hope for a few more goals from Sullay in a stress-free end to the campaign for he and his teammates. 

Enjoy.

    What do you think our youngsters have to do to get a chance in our side?

    Maybe end of season will be time to cut loose all the very average players we have and let some of the young talent come through.

      That would be the ideal outcome.

      I think the League Cup next season is a perfect setting to rest some of our key players and play the youngsters. Yes, we should be looking to do well in all the cup competitions we play in, but realistically, we can’t afford to try out untested youngsters in the League and arguably the FA cup.

      If we played our hungry youngsters in the League cup, which is often against teams in the lower leagues anyway particularly in the early stages, it would give them a chance to shine and earn a place on the bench in the league or FA cup.

      If they keep doing well don’t change it.
