Lee Cox joined Boro on loan last week and started in Saturday’s 4-3 win over Morecambe

Lee Cox says a lack of playing time at Plymouth Argyle led to his loan move to Stevenage.

The 25-year-old joined Boro from Plymouth last week following the news that Steven Schumacher was set to miss the rest of the season with an ACL injury.

The former Swindon Town midfielder has only played five times for the Pilgrims this season, and has yet to feature under new boss Derek Adams.

He started for Stevenage on Saturday as they beat Morecambe 4-3 in League Two, and afterwards said: “It was just a lack of games at Plymouth. I was very comfortable down there but I want to play football matches.

“My ambition is to win every single game I play. If we keep going on a run [at Stevenage] we will hopefully climb the table.”

Asked about his own playing style, Cox added: “I like to get forward and join in with the attacks. I focus on winning balls, so I think I’m a bit of an-all rounder.”
