England Under-21s midfielder Nick Powell opens his account for Wigan against Ipswich
Wigan Athletic boss Owen Coyle believes Nick Powell
will have a 'huge career' after the 19-year-old opened his account in a 2-0 win over Ipswich Town.
The England Under-21s midfielder joined Latics on loan from Manchester United earlier this month and has impressed the manager.
Former Crewe Alexandra man Powell capitalised on an error from Ipswich stopper Dean Gerken in stoppage time to casually clip the ball over a defender to clinch victory.
And Coyle was delighted to see him get off the mark in his third outing for the Championship outfit.
"I said to David (Whelan, Wigan Athletic chairman) when I was bringing him in, for me it was a win-win-win situation," said the ex-Bolton Wanderers boss.
"We would win out of it because we got a terrific player, Nick Powell would win because I've given him a platform to showcase his talents and Manchester United will get back a more-developed player with more experience.
"There's no doubt he can have a huge career."
Coyle also felt the manner of Powell's goal epitomised his natural ability and his confident demeanour.
"When I was a striker it would have been taken first time!" said Coyle.
"The lad came back on the line but you wouldn't have thought there was anybody there the way he nonchalantly dispatched it, but that's Nick."
He added: "He's got so much belief and ability. Hopefully I can give him more and it benefits the football club."
Powell will hope to be included in Gareth Southgate's Under-21s squad for their upcoming Euro 2015 Qualifiers in San Marino and at home against Lithuania.
