Jordan Sinnott inspired by Dominic Poleon's Gigg Lane experience
THE impact made by Dominic Poleon at Gigg Lane last season convinced young Huddersfield Town midfielder Jordan Sinnott to take a chance on a six-month loan move to Bury.
Leeds forward Poleon scored twice in seven appearances during a brief spell with the Shakers and has since been handed a number first-team chances at Elland Road.
The 19-year-old scored the winner for Leeds against Chesterfield in the Capital One Cup last week, and Sinnott is looking for a similar kick-start to his career under the guidance of Kevin Blackwell.
“My manager at Huddersfield (Mark Robins) told me to take spirit from what other loanees have done before me at Bury. He said there’s no reason why that can’t be you,” added the 19-year-old playmaker.
Blackwell said when bringing the son of former Huddersfield and Bradford defender Lee Sinnott to Gigg Lane he was looking for him to add more creative flair to the centre of midfield.
But he was thrown on in attack in the second half at Oxford on Saturday, playing in the hole behind striker Anton Forrester.
Wherever the Bury boss chooses to play the young midfielder, Sinnott says he will be happy just to get some games under his belt.
“I broke through last season, played three games – two in the cup and one in the league,” he said. “The main thing for Huddersfield last season was survival, and the manager said it was hard to try to get me around the first team.
“But I signed a two-year contract and went back trying to kick on. “I thought I had a good pre-season, fitness wise.
“I felt fit and strong, but the manager has got to make decisions. When he came to me in training last week and said Bury had been on the phone I was excited to come here and play games.”
While Sinnott tasted defeat in his first game in a Bury shirt, the youngster believes they were unlucky to lose 2-1 at Oxford after drawing level with 20 minutes to play.
“I’m very surprised because there are a lot of new lads here and, seeing some of the phases of play, it is like they have been playing together for weeks,” he said.
“We had done so well to get back into the game and, in my opinion, they had gone. They looked like they didn’t want it at all.
“It was time for us to kick on and try to get a second, but the set piece has killed us and Nathan getting sent off as well was just a kick in the teeth.”
