Wimbledon winger Dylan Connolly is set to stay on loan at Bradford City after Dons boss Glyn Hodges revealed he his struggling find a place for him in his first-team.
Speaking to London News Online, Hodges said: ‘If he is playing then I don’t really want to bring him back.’
‘With the system we are playing at the moment, Dylan won’t find a spot and would be on the bench.’
Connolly signed a season-long loan at Valley Parade on deadline day after making four appearances for the Dons in August. He’s gone on to make twelve outings for the Bantams and made some impressive displays with his pacy trickery proving to be a big hit with the Bradford City faithful.
The twenty-four-year-old Irishman arrived at Wimbledon from Dundalk in January for an undisclosed fee. He was former manager Wally Downes’ first signing, going on to make fourteen League One outings in the second half of last season, helping the Dons to escape relegation miraculously.
He left for Bradford in search of regular football, and he’s making a significant contribution to the Bantams push for an immediate return to League One.
We find this one a bit strange.
Many Wimbledon fans were shocked when the club let him go out on loan and will probably be annoyed he’s not set for a recall
He is still a bit raw, but as Bradford fans are finding out when he is on his mettle, he can have a huge impact on matches.
