On-loan Curry warm­ing up nicely after in­jury

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - SPORT -

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.”
