JORDY Hiwula reckons City have a bit of everything up front now after snapping up Charlie Wyke.

The former Carlisle hitman is primed to make his Valley Parade debut against Gillingham on Saturday.

Wyke scored 18 goals for the Cumbrians before stepping up a division and his bustling style should provide an edge to an attack that has struggled to score at times.

Hiwula, who moved into double figures with Tuesday’s goal at Oxford, believes Stuart McCall has the forward options to shake it up.

He said: “We all bring something different but can play together as well. It’s good to have that competition and gives the manager a hard decision when it comes to Saturday.

“It’s good to have a lot of options and it keeps you on your toes.

James Hanson has been here for so many years but now he’s gone and we’ve got to cope with it.

“I think we’ve done that and if we can keep playing like we have been, I’m sure we’ll win more games than we lose.”

Hiwula’s header in the Checkatrade Trophy exit was his fifth goal in the last eight starts. The Huddersfield loanee has already equalled his best total of ten from two seasons ago.

“I feel that since the turn of the year I’ve taken more of the opportunities that I would have missed at the start of the season,” he added.

“I know I could have got more but you can’t be scared of missing chances. That’s going to happen as a striker.

“You just need to keep getting in those areas in between the two centre backs and you’ll build the confidence to take more of them.

“Do that and hopefully more goals will come along. I feel I’m playing well enough to keep pushing on.”

Alex Jones and Billy Clarke are also vying for striking roles and winger Mark Marshall can play further forward.

McCall felt City have come out of the January window strong enough to maintain their promotion challenge after the flurry of late business. But they will be relying on younger shoulders.

He said: “We’ve lost a lot of experience this window with Nathan Clarke going, Hanson, Matt Kilgallon injured and Filipe Morais.

“The young boy Jacob Hanson is one for the future as is Matt Penney who is coming up to 19. Kevin Toner has played a bit at this level for Walsall.

“The one blow was losing Killa. That’s been a disappointment but there was nothing we could do about that.

“But we’ve got the bodies in and we’re certainly not weaker.”
