    Scored his 8th/9th goals of the season as well as achieving a hattrick of assists, as he also hits the crossbar from a free-kick in a 1-5 win away to Hoolahan's Cambridge. Masterson also featured for the U's.

    Is he becoming unignorable for Kenny given our toothless attack?

    Normally plays on the left of a front 3 for the Imps.

    Lincoln did good business here you'd have to think might get a million for him in January?

    His numbers look good but league one isn't great. Ronan Curtis did a lot of damage at that level but isn't really up to international football so far at least.

    Certainly worth taking a look at though.

    Only going off Quest highlights here, but he just looked quality today. Two cracking finishes and assisted the other three goals. In particular the first of the three assists just left his teammate with a tap in.

    He possibly gets overshadowed a bit because we have younger forwards that get the attention, but he's still only 22 and seems to be consistently improving. Well past time we saw him named in a senior squad.

    Friendly against Qatar and dead rubber against Luxembourg - good opportunity to blood him in. If he keeps this up he's likely to be in The Championship, at least, by the time our Euro 2024 campaign kicks off so it's well worth giving him an early look. And as he plays on the flank of a front three (I've also seen him on the right), he fits nicely into Kenny's favoured system - I think a Scully/Idah/Robinson line sounds very interesting - anybody else agree?

    For those clamouring for his inclusion, this is true. I don't feel it's past time we saw him in there. Parrott is in League One and is in there. Ok. But Parrott has a sensational underage record for us. Scully does not. In addition, I'm not sure if people saw Scully in the play-offs just gone. The biggest games of his career to date. Subbed at half time in the second leg of the semi and didn't start the final.

    This form warrants a call up if a spot is free. If Curtis is in the reckoning for a squad due to injuries then Scully should be ahead of him. Saying he's been overlooked is a stretch I think.

    He’s becoming unignorable imho. Clearly has an instinctive eye for goal. Valuable at any level.

    I checked. He was whipped on 46 in second leg and came on on 80 in the final.

    We had 4 League 1 players on the pitch at once during the last window (Parrott, Bazunu, MacLean and Horgan). Whatever about anything else his division can hardly be a blocker to his selection.

    Definitely swap him in for horgan who will never be of the desired standard for international level some of his passing and touches were horrible during these games.

    Yeah, I think Horgan was found out against Serbia. He's had impacts in certain games for us, particularly with a little more nous when we have space in the counter. But when we were trying to take the game to Serbia he looked out of his depth and McClean was visibly frustrated a few times.

    All respect to Horgan but it is about time to phase out his involvement in games. Someone that can produce or score a goal from the wide forward spot like Scully would be welcome if he can keep progressing.

    Yep. Why not particularly v Qatar.
    He is only 2 years older then troy and is doing a better job then him. He may not be our saviour. But let's find out.
    Who knows he could sign for burnley or Watford in the next window! Then there would be a public outcry for the lad to br involved

    He’s definitely worth a look given his stats over the last year and a half. Tearing it up. However, he’s been dropped from the Lincoln team multiple times during that period of time - despite what he can do in attack.

    From what I recall, he’s been dropped for not working hard enough off the ball or on transition. Habits that we can hardly afford at international level. Hasn’t happened so far this season though!

    As others have said though, if Parrott and McGrath and others are there then Scully deserves a shot too. And still only 22.

    I’ve been impressed from the limited matches I’ve seen. Needs to to be given a shot in a game like Qatar at the least.
