He’s also becoming a favourite of his teammates as well with Wes McDonald revealing his admiration for Umerah.

McDonald said: “Josh is a top guy on and off the field. He works hard, he’s a handful, strong, always willing to run in-behind, battle with defenders and score goals. He’s a top, top guy.

“If anything he complements my game because a big man up top I can play off him but he can also run in-behind and interchange quite a lot, I can use him as a balance and things like that.”
