On-loan Curry warming up nicely after injury
Mitch Curry insists parent club Middlesbrough hold the key to his loan spell with Caley Thistle being extended beyond January.
Englishman Curry joined Inverness on a temporary six-month deal during the summer, but spent three months on the sidelines after damaging ankle ligaments in a Betfred
Cup loss to Dundee in July.
Having netted twice in five matches since making his comeback in a 3-0 Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup win over Alloa Athletic last month, Curry is determined to make an impression, with the possibility of extending his loan stint appealing for the 20-year-old.
Curry said: “We’ll see what happens after the end of January. I still have plenty of time to hopefully get more goals and appearances. The decision will obviously fall to Boro but I’m loving my time up here.
“If it is the right move at the right time, I’d be happy to stay, but they’ll decide that. I just need to keep scoring and make sure I play more minutes.
“That’s how I’m going to get recognised and help the team.”
Curry, who has previously spent time on loan with Harrogate Town, suffered a spate of injury problems during his formative years with English second-tier side Boro.
Curry feels returning to the Riverside for his rehabilitation earlier this season made the process more difficult, adding: “I’ve had so many injuries over the years – elbow, shoulder, ankles twice – I’ve become resilient and used to that side of it.
“I found myself out on the training ground at Boro by myself until late and was one of the earliest in.
“Mentally, more than physically, it can be hard. My thoughts were about this club and I wanted to keep myself in the picture because it can be a case of out of sight, out of mind.
“Going back down, I felt a bit strange. I’m a Boro player, but it didn’t feel right being back there when I was meant to be on loan here.”
