The 20 year old former Crewe Alexandra striker said:
"The last few months have been a rollercoaster for me but it's been worth it in the end," he said. "I'm here now and we're doing well as a team.
"To play in the Championship, whether it's starting or coming off the bench, is massive for me.
"To score a goal on my first start, it's hard to find the words, it's unbelievable. It's the best feeling ever. I can't wait to go again."
With performances such as the one given on Friday night it certainly appears that former Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has unearthed a gem in Clayton and I cannot wait to see how he progresses and develops under Neil Lennon.
