High flying Rotherham United had to see defeat away to Portsmouth as George Hirst scored one and also assisted one as Pompey hammered in three goals in their 3-0 win at Fratton Park against a Millers team with Victor Johansson in goal and Joe Mattock also in the starting eleven.
George Hirst had a troubled start at Portsmouth as goals looked to miss in his performances but since he scored his first in the November away win vs. Lincoln he is now at 9 and will most certainly reach double figures as the season continues.
Portsmouth manager Danny Cowley is known for his talent spotting and has seen the potential of the former Sheffield Wednesday and Leuven front man. George Hirst did get his league debut for Leicester coming in as a sub vs. Tottenham back in 2020. He has since debut added one more PL game to his name.
His former tally of goals in the U.23’s at Leicester and appearing for England U.20 is on an impressive avarage level and now we see the same for Portsmouth.
Last season he spent time on loan at Rotherham and made 31 league appearances and never scored. A large amounts of the games was coming on from the subs bench, but in all probably a disappointing affair for the forward.
Most fans believe George Hirst has made his last appearance for Leicester and will be on his way back to Fratton Park in the summer. Few believe he will make the grade and follow other so called hot prospects such as Admiral Muskwe, Ali Reghba, Layton Ndukwu.
Watching on as Danny Cowley safely nurse forward the talent of George Hirst we would like Brendan Rodgers to have his views and priorities on hand as he again decides to splash out massive amounts of cash on fringe alternatives.
