Nat Brown has backed teammate Conner Robinson to have a bright future in the game.
The two Lincoln City players are currently on loan at Boston United until the end of the campaign.
And former Huddersfield and Wrexham defender Brown (pictured) is adamant he has seen plenty of promise from the young striker.
“Conner’s got a great future,” Brown said of the 21-year-old, who netted twice in four appearances for United during a loan last season, but has suffered a stop-start campaign with the Red Imps.
“He just needs a run of games.
“Give him 10 or 15 games and he’ll be flying.
“He’s a great lad, a great talent and I expect big things from him.”
Brown, 34, and Robinson may be at different points of their career, but both find themselves at the Jakemans Stadium keen to put themselves in the shop window.
Neither have ruled out staying on with the Pilgrims beyond the end of the season, but both want to see how their spells go before making final decisions.
When asked about his future, Robinson said: “The first thing on my mind’s to get that game time.
“Game time is so valuable, you can train all you want but on a match day you can still feel sluggish.”
However, he also praised Brown as the man United need to bring experience to their backline.
He continued: “Nat Brown is such a sensible head, he’s what you need.
“He’s been around the block, played at a high level and is a no-nonsense defender.
“He’ll come off with cuts and bruises but it won’t faze him.”
