SWANSEA City midfielder Josh Sheehan is still waiting to show the Newport County AFC fans what he can do but Exiles boss Warren Feeney says his time will come.

Sheehan arrived on loan from the Liberty Stadium two weeks ago but has so far watched from the bench as County went out of the EFL Cup to MK Dons, won at Leyton Orient, lost at Luton Town and drew 1-1 with Crewe Alexandra on Saturday.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a loan spell at League Two rivals Yeovil Town last season, making 13 appearances, and Feeney is a big fan.

When he signed Sheehan on August 8 at the same time as Jordan Green, the manager said: "Josh knows this division well from his time at Yeovil last season and he has great potential.

"I think he will offer something different for us and will add quality to our squad.

"Josh is always looking to get on the ball and make things happen and he creates the opportunity for other players around him to be that little bit more flexible and his signing will give us another dimension.”

And after Saturday’s draw at Rodney Parade Feeney said: “Josh is a good footballer and there’s a lot of games coming up.

“I feel sorry for my players who don’t play. I’ve seen managers who don’t care about them but I want to keep everyone together.

“You could see with the ones that come on that they don’t sulk.

“Ben Tozer is a fantastic player who is still getting up to speed.

“Jazzi [Barnum-Bobb] doesn’t sulk and Josh is the same, Biggy [Paul Bignot], Tom [Owen-Evans] – I want them disappointed.

“But they will get their turn – there’s 50-odd games in a season and we’ve got to keep everyone together.

“Josh knows that and we have a good wee group.

“I will put my arm round them certainly when I need to but at the end of the day it’s not about me or the names on the back of the shirt, it’s about Newport County football club.

“We all want to win games and that’s what we’ve got to do.”
