SWINDON Town’s newest signing Josh Davison is a hard worker, a strong finisher, and can hold the ball up well, according to a handful of Charlton Athletic fans.

Davison signed for Town on loan earlier this week - 24 hours after the club’s previous number nine, Tyreece Simpson, had been recalled by parent club Ipswich Town.

Following the 22-year-old’s arrival, Adver Sport asked Addicks fans to share their insight on the promising forward, and this is what some of them said.

Matt Haff said: "He’ll give everything, runs his socks off.

“Not a bad finisher but lacks a bit of quality on the ball. Struggles to impact the game in League One, in my opinion.”

CAFC Memes and Opinions said: “He’s young, and has determination and high levels of energy.

“He would work well in a front two but as a singular striker he wouldn’t thrive as he lacks in the final third and can work on his shooting/finishing."

Tony said: “He’s honest and will graft 100 per cent for you. Provided with opportunities, he’ll score for you.”

Oliver Tall said: “Not a player I believe that fits the system that any of our last three managers wanted to play.

“He’s very committed, runs endlessly - not enough pace, aerial ability or hold up play for someone of his build.

“Should be good in League Two though, off the standard above that.”

David Acklam said: “He’s a hard worker, a decent target man, fairly good in the air, and can drive the ball on.

“He had a great spell at Enfield a few seasons back and scored a hat full. Limited chances in first team but came in to deputise for Jayden Stockley when he got suspended for three games, did so well kept Stockley out of side for a bit.

“However, last couple of times he came into side he hasn’t looked a L1 striker at all, and isn’t getting near the bench.

“Davison used to be fairly lightweight but has bulked out of late (muscles and gym work not pies and ale!) so is better at holding up the ball.”

Davison has 13 goals and four assists in 69 appearances so far in his career. The general consensus from those who have watched him previously is that he works hard and thrives as part of a front two - something Ben Garner operates with at Swindon.

From Charlton’s point of view, the thought process in allowing Davison to spend time out on loan is to help him take that next step from League Two striker into one who can mix it in the third tier or above.

From Swindon’s point of view, they will hope this loan spell will see Davison move into a higher gear while also netting the goals Town require to achieve promotion.
