Cullen tipped for big say in run-in for Bantams (From )

JOSH Cullen is just the man for City s play-off push, according to Reece Burke. The West Ham midfielder has been secured for the rest of the season after catching the eye in his first month at Valley Parade.

Phil Parkinson[1] believes Cullen s maturity , despite his lack of experience, will be a key factor and was delighted to get his loan tied down. He said: When we bring lads in, we try to look after them as a club and we ve got a good dressing room. The lads are always very welcoming to new players and Josh has fitted in well.

He s very mature for his age. Like I say, he s got an old head on young shoulders and that s one of his real attributes.

He s made a good contribution in his first few games since he s been here and we need that competition in the squad for places.

Burke is not surprise to see his pal make such an immediate impact in League One.

He s small and looks like a school kid but on the pitch he s like a man, said the defender. I ve played loads of games in the under-21s with Josh and he s a leader, a really good player. Like fellow Hammers graduate Burke, Cullen arrived at City with a smattering of senior experience following two starts in the Europa League. Parkinson added: If you look at Reece, he played some games in the Premier League last season. Obviously Josh has had the taste in European football so it wasn t completely new to them.

Ideally, I think those are the players you want who have had a taste of it.

That s really important because sometimes the first few games at first-team level can be a bit of a shock in terms of the intensity in which they are played.

But those two have done well for us and it s good for West Ham as well.

I m not a big fan of the (Premier) under-21 league. I watch a lot of the games and they are played at a very slow pace and there s very little goalmouth action.

I don t think they are a great grounding for players going into league football. You can only play so much of that and you ve got to get out into the real world if you are going to develop.

Burke has already established himself as a big player in City s season but admits he needs to contribute with more goals. He scored against Burton in midweek, following up after Jon McLaughlin[2] parried Billy Clarke s shot to claim his first at Valley Parade. Burke admitted: I was due a goal because I haven t scored for a while. But I was lucky enough to get in at the back post so it was good.

I ve always struggled with goal-scoring, to be honest. That s one of my targets at the beginning of the season because top class defenders get goals as well.

It s good to chip in and that s why I was buzzing to get my second one of the season. It was a big game and we needed a result.

The win put City on the brink of the top six ahead of this afternoon s home clash with struggling Doncaster. Burke, whose loan extends to cover the play-offs, said: It would be a great achievement for me if I do get to play in them.

Those are the games you want to play in when everyone is watching and you ve got the chance to impress.

The experienced players will be all right but obviously the young lads, including me, will have to deal with the pressure.

But that s part of the experience and you need to keep a cool head. Meanwhile, Jamie Proctor is a doubt for today because of a tight hamstring.

*JAMES Hanson missed out on the SkyBet League One player of the month title for February.

The City striker was on the four-name shortlist after scoring three times, including twice at Peterborough on his 300th career appearance.

But the judges went with Millwall goalkeeper Jordan Archer, who conceded only three goals in five games.

B&Q's One Team For Fresh Challenge

B&Q's One Team For Fresh ChallengeThe logistics partners of B&Q have formed the first ever cross-company team to enter The Fresh Connection supply chain training contest.

XPO Logistics, Wincanton and BRS have joined forces to take part in the UK & Ireland competition, run by SCALA Consulting, and help develop B&Q s One Logistics Team operational ethos. Kingfisher Group made the One Logistics Team approach a key requirement when it awarded long-term logistics contracts for B&Q last year following a strategic review of its supply chain. Kevin Bennett, B&Q s Director of Store Distribution & International Supply Chain, said: I am delighted to see our logistics partners come together and truly form One Team to develop their people and ways of working.

The Fresh Connection teaches leadership skills through aligning corporate strategy & operational decision making, which makes it the perfect vehicle to develop a One Team mind-set for B&Q s multi-provider logistics network.

The Fresh Connection is a global professional challenge in which teams develop supply chain management skills and leadership experience by turning around a failing manufacturing company. Companies taking part this year include AB World Foods, Aramex, DHL, Kimberly-Clark and Unilever. XPO Logistics, formerly Norbert Dentressengle, will also be entering teams as part of its Graduate Programme after winning the award for Best Service Provider in last year s UK & Ireland competition.

XPO s B&Q Account Director, Andy Hague, commented: The Fresh Connection promotes internal and external teamwork and I m very pleased that we are able to put those principles into action by entering a joint team with our B&Q partners. This year s competition theme is supply chain collaboration, with cross-company teams featuring customers, suppliers and logistics providers being encouraged for the very first time. There is still time for teams to sign up and take part in the 2016 event contact SCALA Consulting on 01484 437 486 for details about the competition.

The Fresh Connection is supported by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and the Food Storage and Distribution Federation. Kingfisher Group awarded logistics contracts for B&Q to XPO Logistics and Wincanton in August 2015 following a strategic review of its supply chain. The Fresh Connection is a cross-functional business simulation which uses supply chain management best practices from real-world situations. The simulation has been experienced by more than 12,000 professionals in 600 companies across the world since its creation in 2008.

SCALA are based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, and are leaders in supply chain benchmarking. The company also manages a Supply Chain Best Practice Forum for more than 25 major FMCG manufacturers.
