Mansfield Town manager David Holdsworth believes defender Scott Garner has the quality to become a Premier League player in the future.

Holdsworth brought the 19-year-old to Field Mill after he had him on loan at Ilkeston from Leicester.

Garner got the winner in Saturday's victory at Eastbourne and won player of the month for January.

Holdsworth said: "He will play at a higher level - I wouldn't bet against him playing in the Premier League."

He'll become a captain of a club someday because he's got that about him

Garner's header secured Mansfield all three points on the south coast as the Stags came from behind to win 2-1.

Holdsworth added: "Scott Garner's a great kid and I think the world of him as a person.

"He's adapted very quickly to this level and is learning all the time now.

"For me he's got everything at his feet. He'll become a captain of a club someday because he's got that about him."

Meanwhile, Garner has revealed he is loving life at Field Mill.

He said: "I've been delighted with the move and it couldn't have gone better with me from the start. I get on with everyone really well and have settled in at the club."
