Weimann Rewarded With Squad Call Up
Andreas Weimann, our second string starlet, has been rewarded for his performances this season by being pulled into the first 18 for the Blackburn clash.
Speaking on the Official Site Martin O'Neill confirmed that Weimann had been called into the first 18 for the first time in real terms due to his performances both through out the season (he finished as the league's leading scorer with 9), and in the reserve Play Off final.
Weimann isn't exactly a stranger to the first team, having tasted some pre season action in the Peace Cup and finding the net in our Peterborough friendly.
'I have brought young Andy into the squad. He was splendid for us up at Old Trafford and I would be hoping that this time next year he would have made his mark.'
O'Neill also adds he would hope Delfouneso will achieve the same next season by adding:
'The two of them pre season with a bit of luck will figure.'
Ahead of Blackburn O'Neill also rubbishes talk that he will play the fringe players and youngsters to give them a taste, insisting:
'We will go full strength in the game, it's important for us to win.'
