Striker Chris Holroyd says he will talk to parent club Brighton about the possibility of extending his loan stay at Stevenage.

The 23-year-old, who is at Broadhall Way until 26 December, has scored five goals in five games for Boro.

He told BBC Three Counties Radio: "It's up to Brighton, I'll speak to them about their plans for me. I'm their player, so it's up to them ultimately.

"I'll have a chat with them and see what happens from there."

The front man has made just two appearances for Gus Poyet's Seagulls since signing permanently from Cambridge United in the summer.

We want to have a real push and the gaffer and the boys are confident we'll be right at the top of the league

He had featured 13 times in an initial loan spell from the U's but failed to get on the score sheet.

The former Chester man's time with Stevenage has seen him find his goal scoring touch and, with Graham Westley's side eighth in League Two, he says the club are looking to go places.

"The gaffer's told us we need to aim high, we don't want to come into this league and settle into it," he said.

"We want to have a real push and the gaffer and the boys are confident we'll be right at the top of the league."
