Jerome making more than an impact

"His pace and power unsettles people and he makes space for his team-mates," Lennie told the Western Mail

"Cameron has done OK and you've got to give the lad credit. I saw him as an impact player a month or two ago but he has shown he can do it from the start."

Cameron will be looking forward to playing against Premiership Blackburn this weekend but Lennie is being coy about whether he will play the 18 year old "former" youth player. Jerome was scoring a hat trick against Charlton for the academy team in September before making his way onto the subs bench for the first team and now he's a regular starter in the senior side

"I was wondering whether Cameron would be able to cope with four games in nine days but he has done," added Lawrence.

"We'll have to see whether he plays on Saturday, though."

Jerome has also impressed his strike partner Peter Thorne.

"Cameron has come from nowhere. He runs all day and he terrorises defences," said Thorne.

"I knew Cameron had ability but I didn't believe he would take the first team by storm like he has done."I'm not getting any younger so it's a massive help to have someone who will do most of the running."
