Blackwell believes in Bartley

10 Feb 2010 - 13:27:19

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell has justified starting Arsenal loanee Kyle Bartley in their 2-1 defeat at Preston North End on Tuesday evening.

The 18-year-old made the temporary transfer just moments before the side set off for Lancashire and despite not playing with his team-mates, he performed admirably.

He was added to the squad after captain Chris Morgan was ruled out for a fortnight with a rib injury.

Speaking to reporters, Blackwell said: "You'd rather develop them at that age but sometimes things work out differently.

"Kyle comes with a really good background and from a really good club. He certainly has pedigree.

"If they are good enough then, as has been shown in the past, a player can really push on."
