'A great experience...a big step up' - Bakinson

Tyreeq Bakinson is loving life in South Wales, with a number of outstanding performances on loan at Newport County.

The midfielder has completed all ten Sky Bet League Two matches which he has started this season, grabbing one goal and three assists in that time.

He has also claimed five man of the match performances, as he has taken his loan spell by storm.

"It’s going really well at the moment," he told bcfc.co.uk

"All you want as a footballer is to get game time and play men’s football, to get that exposure.

"You never know what you’re going to get on loan but it is working out well for me!"

The central midfielder scored his only goal of the 2018/19 campaign so far away to Oldham Athletic - a 69th-minute winner which was voted by Newport County fans as their goal of the month for September.

Bakinson said: "My goal against Oldham Athletic felt really good.

"I had been getting a bit of stick from the manager (Mike Flynn) for my shooting so it was a bit of a relief to see that one go in the back of the net!"

"All you want as a footballer is to get game time and play men’s football, to get that exposure. You never know what you’re going to get on loan but it is working out well for me!"

And the former Luton Town Academy player, who joined City in August 2017, was full of praise for the loan system.

"I am playing men’s football regularly which is a great experience and it is a big step up from playing Under-23s football."
