Curry keen to display staying power at Caley Thistle
MITCH Curry would be keen to extend his Caley Thistle loan spell beyond January if parent club Middlesbrough give the green light.
The versatile young attacker has already been unloading recent frustration on Championship defences, with two goals in four starts since shaking off injury.
With pace, ability on the ball and a keen nose for goal, Curry’s temporary management believe he can lend the team a fresh attacking dimension.
Ankle ligament damage wiped out more than two months of his six-month term in the Highlands, with the 20-year-old keen to make up for lost time.
Should it go well, remaining at Caledonian Stadium until May is certainly an option that appeals.
The talented Teessider said: “We’ll see what happens after January. I still have plenty of time, hopefully, to get playing regularly and score more goals.
“If Caley Thistle would like to keep me here, the decision will obviously fall, first and foremost, to ‘Boro. All I’d say is I’m loving my time here. If it is the right move at the right time, I’d be happy.
“I just need to keep scoring as that’s how I’m going to get recognised and help the team.”
Curry shared his team’s dejection after defeat to Dundee United, but with zest at being back playing he is raring to for Arbroath away this weekend.
Hit by a spate of injuries over the last few years, it is now all about proving his mettle.
Curry stressed: “You get labelled as ‘always injured’, but they’ve all been freak mishaps – an elbow, shoulder and ankles twice – and I’ve become resilient at dealing with it. Hopefully, now, it is behind me.
“This was my toughest spell out as I was back at ‘Boro, but still on loan. Hopefully, it’s behind me.”
