AFC Bournemouth defender Baily Cargill believes that he will be ready if called upon during the Cherries Premier League run in.
Cargill begun the 2016/17 season out on loan with Gillingham in League One, but after ankle and hernia injuries limited him to 10 appearances he was recalled to AFC Bournemouth in January 2017.
Following injuries to both Simon Francis and Tyrone Mings, Cargill made his Premier League debut for AFC Bournemouth away to Manchester United, coming on for the final 12 minutes with the score at 1-1 and the Cherries having been down to 10 men since the first half.
He however is yet to make a second appearance with both Simon Francis and Steve Cook in form at the heart of the Cherries defence, but with Tyrone Mings serving a five match ban, Cargill knows he’s next in line for place in the Cherries back four.
Cargill told the afcb.co.uk…
‘It’s a lot different, The intensity, the speed and quickness of the play are a lot different to League One, obviously.
‘Coming back here has been a lot different to what I was used to at the start of the season and it’s a massive step up; I know I’m capable, I’ve made the jump back up and I feel comfortable again in training.’
‘We went away to Madrid recently and that really helped us, Since we came back from there we’ve been brilliant and it really brought the lads together.
‘I think the idea behind coming here (Dubai) was the same. We’ve had two back-to-back wins and hopefully we can crack on now, beat Southampton and carry on the way we’re going.’
Cargill is 21 now isn’t he…? Surely if ever he was going to break through, now is the time… How long do you wait for him to ‘come of age’…?
If he’s not ready this season, he needs to be shipped out to a champ club possibly next year… – Join the conversation here.
