What does Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink make of Kieffer Moore?

Northampton boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink knows a thing or two about strikers.

The 45-year-old is a Premier League icon for spells at Leeds, Chelsea and Middlesbrough, while also winning 23 caps for Holland, so he is in a good position to give an opinion on Rotherham hotshot Kieffer Moore.

 

Moore took his goal tally to nine for the season with the winner in Saturday’s League One clash, poking home from close range, but he caused havoc for the Cobblers defence throughout the game.

And Hasselbaink, who took over from Justin Edinburgh last month, was impressed by the 25-year-old.

“Kieffer Moore is a handful, he gave the back four a problem throughout the game and we did not assess that as well as we could,” he said.

“He was a constant threat and is a massive player for them. He has strength and pace, our defenders could not cope with him.”

Millers boss Paul Warne must be getting sick of being asked about his main man, with the fact that he is not their player still hanging over the club.

Still, Warne was happy to heap the praise on Moore.

“I thought it was a good finish,” he said. “He could have had another couple. We are really pleased with him. He’s a great kid. He works hard all the time and he is just one of a good group we have got.”
