David Artell believes that Josh Lundstram’s one month loan to Solihull Moors will do the midfielder ‘the world of good’ as he aims to recapture his form pre-injury.
Lundstram endured a frustrating time last season after suffering a fractured ankle but he did make it back to feature in the final game of the campaign against Shrewsbury Town.
This season, Lundstram has found his first team opportunities limited to just 16 appearances in all competitions and Artell says it is important that the Stoke-born midfielder goes out and gets some game time again.
He told the club’s official website: “The likes of Josh and Joe (Robbins) need to play. I think their loans will do them the world of good.
“Josh hasn’t quite hit the heights pre his injury and he needs some games. It will serve him well playing in the Conference and it will be good loan for him.
“I had planned to watch him play against Wrexham on Boxing Day but that too was called off, so we will go out and watch him at some point.
“Joe has been crying out to get some first team football and he has gone out to Nantwich, which is sure to be a good experience for him. It is an opportunity for them to impress and play first-team football and we are expecting both of them to benefit from it.”
