Westley hopes Holroyd considers Boro a ‘viable option’

Boro boss hopes loan experience will influence striker’s decision should he leave Brighton

BORO boss Graham Westley says he hopes Chris Holroyd would consider Stevenage a ‘viable option’ should he become available for transfer on his return to parent club Brighton in December.

The striker has scored five goals in five games for Boro since he joined them on a three-month loan deal last month and is keeping the likes of Charlie Griffin and Yemi Odubade out of the Stevenage team.

“He’s a Brighton player and Brighton will have a point of view on (Holroyd’s future),” Westley said after Boro’s 2-1 win against Burton on Saturday.

“They’re going great guns and have got some big names in there so there may be an opportunity that Chris will leave.

“I would hope that with the experience that he’s having here if he does decide to move on from Brighton, and if Brighton make that decision too, I hope he’s enjoyed things enough here so far and goes on to enjoy things enough that we become a viable option but let’s wait until his loan ends before we think about that.”
