Comminges aims to make left-back position his own

Stevenage defender aims to become regular fixture in Gary Smith’s side

Miguel Comminges says he must play his best week in, week out if he wants to retain his place in Gary Smith’s Stevenage side.

Comminges has played the last two matches for Boro, and impressed especially in the first half against Crawley.

Yet with Darius Charles, who came off the bench for the full-back on Saturday, and Lee Hills, who started on the left of midfield, also candidates for a starting berth in Comminges’ left-back position the defender says he must not put a foot wrong if he is to keep his place in the team.

“I first got in the team in September and after that I got injured,” the defender told the Comet.

“I tried to get back again and I just try to do my best to get back into the team now.

“There are three or four players who can play in that position so you have to play your best every time you play.”

Comminges also had good things to say about Hills, pictured below, who himself has had to struggle with injuries this season.

“He is an energetic player,” Comminges said.

“Sometimes you have to calm him down. He’s a very young player and he wants to go forward which is very good.

“I think if he keeps doing that he is going to have a long career because he is very, very fit.”
