SWINDON TOWN: Loanee Ajose unsure on future
NICKY Ajose remains unsure where his future lies as his loan spell at Swindon Town edges closer to completion.
The Peterborough frontman joined Town in August and has since scored eight goals in 16 appearances to firmly endear himself to the Robins’ fans and management.
Ajose’s deal with Swindon expires in the new year and Posh are expected to drive a hard bargain with Swindon if they want to extend the loan until the end of the campaign or take the striker on permanently.
For the 22-year-old, who has not spoken to the Peterborough hierarchy about the situation, the circumstances are hardly ideal.
When asked what might happen in January, Ajose said: “I’ve no idea. It’s not ideal, I can’t say that it’s the best situation to be in, obviously everyone likes to have their future sorted but I’ll just try to train every day and try to do well to give myself the best possible platform for the future - wherever that may be.
“What we’ve got here is great management staff, a young team who are all trying to develop their careers and I think it’s been good for me.
“I think it’s brought out some good play from myself, I’ve enjoyed my time here and obviously I’m not finished yet - I’ve still got a few weeks left. I’m just going to enjoy every game and every session.
“I don’t really have much contact with them and I don’t think I’ll be talking to them about much. It’s not something I can really control. I’ve just tried to do my best on the pitch when I’ve played and it’s up to other people to sit around the table and talk about.”
Ajose is expecting a physical test from Stevenage in the southern section area final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tonight.
“Last time I remember playing Stevenage when (Graham) Westley (Stevenage manager) was there it was like Land of the Giants,” he said.
“They are very competitive and robust and you know you’re going to be in for a tough game, but they do have quality at the top end with players like Luke Freeman and Lucas Akins - I’ve played against them a number of times.
“They are dangerous and it’s more about we play. If we play near to our maximum we feel we can win the game.”
