On-loan from QPR, the versatile 21-year-old scored his first goal for Boro in their win over Hartlepool

Match-winner Max Ehmer says that his side should try to win each of their remaining four matches before the season ends.

The 21-year-old joined the club from Premier League side Queens Park Rangers last week on loan until the end of the campaign, and made his debut in the 1-1 draw at Crawley Town on Friday before scoring the only goal of the game against Hartlepool on Monday.

Speaking after that match, the versatile player, who had already played in central midfield and left-back for Boro, said it was good that he and his teammates gave returning manager Graham Westley the best possible start to his third spell in charge.

“The new gaffer coming in, it was good to get off the mark as early as possibly,” Ehmer said after the Hartlepool victory.

“Everyone over the pitch was class and I thought we deserved the three points.

“I played [at left-back] under the gaffer when I was at Preston... and I’ve played centre mid. I play a few positions and I enjoy it.

“He signed me when he was at Preston and he’s back here again.

“He’s a good manager to work under and I really enjoy it.

“I just come here to play football and hopefully I can stay in the team and we get as many wins as we can.

“We’re a good side and the four games left are winnable for us.”

Boro are set to play one of Ehmer’s former clubs, Yeovil Town, on April 13, while already at Stevenage are a number of players the on-loan man has played with and against before.

“It’d be good when [Yeovil] come here but I’m looking forward to every game, [I’m] hoping to stay in the side and win all of the games that we’ve got left.

“I knew Bondz [N’Gala] from Yeovil, I knew Anthony Grant, [James] Dunne as well playing against Exeter, and David Gray as well who was at Preston.”
