GARY Bowyer reckons there’s a lot more to come from Aramide Oteh.

The on-loan QPR striker is set to partner James Vaughan again as City head to Leyton Orient tomorrow.

Oteh relished the chance of playing down the middle in the win over Newport and came close to scoring his fourth goal of the season.

Bowyer can see the forward making progress but feels he can raise the bar.

The City boss said: “Remi went out on loan last year (to Walsall) and probably didn’t play as much as he would have liked.

“He’s certainly done better on his second loan but I still think he can push himself harder. We’ve spoken to him and he’s aware of that.

“But he’s a young player learning. It’s the accumulation of games, experience and know-how and realising what he can do.

“You saw last week when he’s pressing like he is, running round with and without the ball, he’s a handful.”

Clayton Donaldson has begun light training again after his toe operation but City are not putting a date on his expected return.

Oteh accepts it is up to him and others to pick up the slack heading into a hectic run of games.

Oteh said: “Clayton’s a big part of our team but it’s a chance for everybody else to step up and take charge.

“I’ve played out wide and only a couple of games as a striker and I feel that I’m getting more chances as they come.

“I just wanted to have a run of games to show what I can really do. It’s quite hard to do that when you’re in the team one minute and then out of it the next.

"When I first came in it was hard not playing much but I was still integrating into the team. But it's been good over the last two months.

"I speak to some of the coaches at QPR and they are pleased with how things are going."

City could climb back into an automatic promotion spot with back-to-back wins and Bowyer feels the players are not getting the credit they deserve.

He said: “Opposition managers were saying that we hadn’t won in five. But put that in context, we’d played three games against League One clubs, drawing one and getting narrowly beaten in the other two.

“That’s the world we live in. Somebody loses a game and people are wondering how long he's got left – it’s just nonsense.”
