Fairclough backs Puncheon to shine

25 February 2010 12:14
The 23-year-old joined Saints from Championship side Plymouth at the end of the January transfer window and has made three appearances so far.

Puncheon is poised to make his home debut against Walsall on Saturday and Fairclough, who managed Puncheon at Barnet, believes he will shine.

"He's got a left foot that's tantamount to being a wand," Fairclough told the Daily Echo. "Technically, he's Premier League standard.

"If he is managed in the right fashion and responds to that, you will have a fantastic player that will tear that league apart."
