Bright Enobakhare is flying at the moment for Coventry City. The Wolves loanee is pulling out all the stops, notching one of the goals as the Sky Blues managed to secure a thrilling 5-4 win away from home against Sunderland.
The winger has potential and perhaps looks a cut above in League One. Minus a sending off for his newly adopted side, he’s enjoyed a great spell at the Ricoh Arena.
He’s performing now, but it hasn’t always been this easy for the winger. Earlier this season he spent some time in the Scottish Premiership on loan with Kilmarnock, and to say it didn’t go to plan on the park would be an understatement.
Looking like a great signing on paper, Enobakhare’s move to Rugby Park didn’t work out as everyone hoped it would.
A Bright future?
The Nigerian played six times for the Ayrshire outfit, failing to score or assist. He was just what the Rugby Park side needed at that time, a tricky winger blessed with bags of pace. With a bit of development also, he could become a force in front of goal.
The main problem came from the fact he never really looked interested. He had some nice footwork and ball ability, but wasn’t willing to do anything else to help his teammates.
It’s somewhat a surprise he never made the grade at Rugby Park. Steve Clarke has worked wonders with young players, or performers thrown to the wayside by their former employers. For Clarke to give up on Enobakhare after six months must have been worrying for parent club Wolves.
His spell at Killie may have been beneficial in some respect though. It looks to have taught him if he doesn’t get his act together, all of his potential will be wasted. If that is the case, it’s working wonders for Mark Robins and Coventry.
That’s not to say he’s perfect. Enobakhare is still very hot and cold, but when he turns up, he’s an outstanding player. His pace, combined with great footwork, is lethal. Opponents in League One can’t deal with it, especially now he’s added end product to his game. five goals and an assist in 14 games is a decent return.
With lots to learn, Enobakhare looks set to realise his potential. It’s a shame it didn’t work out at Kilmarnock, because on this form the Nigerian can change games.
He could go to the top if he keeps up this new found attitude. Enobakhare’s spell at Rugby Park may have been beneficial for the winger after all.
