CONOR’S GOT BOSS BACK­ING

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PETER­BOR­OUGH striker Conor Wash­ing­ton has the world at his feet, ac­cord­ing to man­ager Gra­ham West­ley.

Head­ing into this week­end, Wash­ing­ton had scored 21 times in 81 Posh ap­pear­ances since join­ing from New­port County in Jan­uary 2014.

This cam­paign has been a strug­gle though, with just two goals from 15 ap­pear­ances. But West­ley is not con­cerned.

“In lit­tle ways, Conor can de­velop,” West­ley said. “He’s got all the at­tributes to be sen­sa­tional. I was speak­ing to a well-known foot­ball man and he was say­ing that if he got back into Cham­pi­onship or Pre­mier League level, Conor Wash­ing­ton would be a player he’d look to bring in.

“Conor will be­come more clin­i­cal, that’s some­thing you can learn.”
