The former Rangers winger joined the Shakers on loan from Bolton last month and made his debut in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Southend in the FA Cup.

Having shown glimpses of his potential, Wylde, 21, is set for a second chance to impress against Preston in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy northern area quarter-final on Tuesday night.

Blackwell told the Manchester Evening News: "Second half he really came into the game.

"We got much more ball out wide and he looked a real threat. When we pushed him over the other side he was able to come inside and was very unlucky with one strike.

"Gregg showed that he's got ability and I think he can excite the crowd."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
