Uche Ikpeazu

Uche Ikpeazu  Age 19 (Born 28 Feb, 1995)

At 6ft 3 Uche Ikpeazu is big, strong and reasonably mobile.  He holds the ball up well and is a handful for centre backs because of his physical attributes (he has already scored against Rovers this year).    Went through the ranks at Reading before turning down a pro deal to sign for Watford (a deal which included an undisclosed amount of compensation).  Has spent two spells on loan at Crewe who were keen to extend his latest spell by all accounts.

A promising youngster, it remains to be seen if he will provide the cutting edge Doncaster Rovers are looking for (his goal ratio is around 1 in 4 for Crewe in League 1).  Many hoped the club would go for a proven goalscorer or otherwise give the Rovers very own promising youngsters a go.  Surely McKay and Madeville fall into the same category as Ikpeazu?  At the very least he may offer a physical presence and a different option to Curtis Main.

His record is below, as is a short video of his 2 goals for Crewe this year including the one against Doncaster Rovers..

One response to “Uche Ikpeazu

  1. I think it’s now safe to say that Uche WASN’T what Dickov was looking for. But then I’m not convinced that PD knows what he’s looking for sometimes.
