Let’s get physical – boss and team mates alike impressed by Guirane N’Daw
HE might not have yet kicked a competitive ball in anger.
But Guirane N’Daw has taken no time in making his mark on his new Town team mates.
From throwing around his 6ft 3ins, 12-stone bulk in training to proving that he can play a bit too, the Senegalese international has certainly left an impression.
N’Daw was an unused sub last time out – in the 2-2 draw with Huddersfield just shy of a fortnight ago – but the international break has benefited him more than most as he builds up his match fitness.
While he might again start tomorrow’s match at Middlesbrough on the bench, the smart money is on N’Daw making his Blues debut at some stage during the game – before starting one of next week’s two home games, against Wolves on Wednesday night and then Charlton a week tomorrow.

Town boss Paul Jewell confirmed: “Guirane is big and can play and we also have Massimo (Luongo), Luke Hyam and Andy Drury. There is good competition in there and with three games next week, that’s good news.
“But Guirane has worked exceptionally hard and is in contention for the weekend.”

N’Daw has also made an impact on his new team-mates where Jewell’s renowned intensity in training has meant no corners cut over the last two weeks.
Midfield rival Andy Drury admitted: “He’s a big lad who likes to get his tackles in. He is a decent on the ball as well so I think he will be a good signing for us.”
