Peter Taylor saw something of himself in Leon Osborne but he’s yet to feature under Peter Jackson.

The future for Leon Osborne at Valley Parade looks limited, particularly given some of the signings and departures over the summer.

Out and out wingers are not currently part of Peter Jackson’s plan meaning that Leon Osborne is not at the heart of Jacko’s strategy.

But, despite being in and around the first team for four years and notching up 42 appearances in that time, the youth team product has never really shown enough to suggest that he might become a key part of the Bantams.

Hopefully the opportunity of regular first team football which the switch to Southport offers as well as the chance of plying his trade at a lower skill level might provide a springboard for Leon to return at the end of the loan and stake a claim for a more significant role at the club.

I certainly hope that this is the way things turn out at the end of this month.

In other transfer news, Louis Moult, who made 15 appearances at the start of last season, has also gone out for a month. He will be joining Tuesday night’s victors, Accrington Stanley. He goes straight into their squad for the weekend alongside their other loanee from a higher level; Tuesday’s goalscorer Wes Fletcher.
