Phil Brown talks about Rob Kiernan's recall to Wigan Athletic
Blues boss Phil Brown praised defender Rob Kiernan after he returned to parent club Wigan Athletic on Friday.
Wigan used a 24-hour recall in his loan agreement to take Kiernan back to the DW Stadium ahead of their game with Burnley.
And Brown was quick to thank Kiernan for his efforts while on loan at Roots Hall.
He said: “I had a conversation with Rob before he left and said I’d love to take him back on loan at some point between now and the end of the season if it is possible.
“I’d like to thank Rob for all his efforts since he joined us in October. He came in after a great win at Oxford United, which he watched from the stands.
“And he put a marker down from the very first game he played against Burton Albion in which he kept a clean sheet.
“We have picked up plenty of clean sheets in the past couple of months and he has played an important role in that.
“Once again, I’d like to thank him for all he’s done for us in his time on loan here.”
