Gerhard Struber called Aiden Marsh a ‘big talent’ after he was a first team unused substitute on Saturday.

The 16-year-old striker from Barnsley played for the under 23s in their 1-1 draw at Hull on Friday then was on the first team bench for the 5-3 win over QPR after Patrick Schmidt was ruled out with illness. 

Struber said: “He is a talent for the future and he brought luck for us. The academy coaches tell me he is a big talent and I watched him in training and saw his talent. It is normal for this club to bring young players into the squad and, when we have problems with illness or injuries, they will get the chance.”
