Norwich City Under-21s boss Mark Robson has spoken of his pride at seeing Jamar Loza star for Southend United on Monday night.

The 19-year-old Canaries striker, who joined the Shrimpers on a month’s loan earlier this month, put in a man-of-the-match performance for Phil Brown’s men, who saw off Oxford United 3-0. Loza scored, and had a hand in the other two goals, in front of the watching Robson, who feels the forward is gaining invaluable experience with the League Two outfit.

“From everybody involved, and certainly from the academy in the last few years, we’re really proud of Jamar,” said Robson. “Being there watching him I can say that he was really good. I’m probably a little bit biased with him being a Norwich youngster but he was the best player on the pitch.

“The goal he scored was excellent and thoroughly deserved.”

Robson is hoping an extended spell at Southend will help his young forward progress after already impressing with the under-21s this season, scoring eight goals in the process.

“He’s been doing exceptionally well with us – he’s been banging the goals,” he added.

“He’s more than capable of coping at that level, and the fact that we hope he’s going to get more games while he’s there will do him the power of good and that’s great for the future of him and Norwich City.”

City under-21s, without Loza, earned a 1-1 draw against Southampton on Monday afternoon but Robson felt his side should have come away with all three points.

“Before the game, going there you’d be happy with a point but actually we’ve come away disappointed that we didn’t get all three,” Robson told canaries.co.uk. “We played very well in the first half, and to be truthful were by far the better team and created a number of chances. On another day, we would have scored three or four.

“It wasn’t so good in the first 25 minutes of the second half, they got on top of us and had a few chances themselves, but we finished quite strongly.”

  • You managed to sneak "buttocks" past the guard tower, Gek. Either your luck has changed or you said something very very rude to your Arch Fiend. Btw, I only pick up on the solecisms of those who are supposed to set an example to the hoi polloi. See you on daffodil day (dress code: voluminous trews, buttonless overcoats, wooden rattles, fresh buttonholes.) Show your faded cigarette card of Ken Foggo at the door to secure admittance.

  • Recall him immediately. Come home, Loza, your club needs you.......preferably this Saturday.

  • Looks very promising. Showed great balance to keep on his feet for the goal and did he enjoy it :-) Hope he gets extended to the end of the season if possible. Nothing like real matches for development.

  • The future looks great, if we can ever get there through the swamp we are in at the moment.

  • If I picked up on every `typo` from amiable `contibutors`, I`d be very busy, Blaff. See, I have a dodgy key so it happened again. I think I`ll desist from being Je Vriend and become a Viend. See you in the Builders` Buttocks.

  • If our academy players come on as well and as quickly as Southampton's, they'll all be sold to Burnley and Leicester and McNally will pour the profit into a new hot dog stall behind the Barclay.

  • It would be great to see an Academy player make the grade. We`ve had a few false dawns. Fingers crossed for Loza, Murphy2, Morris et al. If we manage to hang on to our Prem status we could be seeing an old Academy boy in action next season - Burnley`s Jason Shackell. A slight chance of seeing Derby`s Chris Martin, too. Not the one who has been constuctively dismissed by Glynis Poultry.
