Red-hot Chelsea Loanee Uwakwe Reacts To Scoring On His League DebutPublished: September 13, 2020
Chelsea loanee Tariq Uwakwe has reacted to scoring on his League One debut in Accrington Stanley's 2-0 victory against Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon.
The gifted London-born Nigerian player is in a rich vein of form at the moment, with his 85th minute strike taking his tally for the season to four goals in two games.
Accrington Stanley sealed victory thanks to Uwakwe's brilliant curling effort from the edge of the area.
The former England U18 international had to seek first team opportunities elsewhere, rather than playing for Chelsea's development squad in the 2020-2021 season, and Accrington Stanley have offered him just that.
In his two appearances for the Reds, the versatile midfielder went the distance - against Leeds United and Peterborough United - and this proves that the manager sees a lot in him.
Writing on Twitter, Uwakwe said : "Debut in the league massive 3 points and my first league goal 🙏🏾 🔴⚪️ @ASFCofficial".
Tariq Uwakwe has been on the books of Chelsea since U9 level and signed his first professional contract three years ago.
