WORCESTER City forward Pa Sulay Njie is expected to stay at Sutton Coldfield Town as he looks to sharpen up his game.

The Gambian international has made three outings for City since being offered a deal earlier this month.

But caretaker boss John Snape admitted the 24-year-old, who started up front in Worcester’s 2-1 home defeat to Brackley Town, was “struggling for match fitness”.

And he felt it was “necessary” to secure him a dual registration move to Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division outfit Sutton Coldfield Town.

Nji featured in the Royals’ 2-1 league victory over Barwell last Saturday.

“Pa has gone out to get some games with Sutton,” Snape said.

“He is struggling for match fitness. He has come into it late and has been training with us.

“We had a look at him against Brackley, but I felt it was necessary that he went out and got a couple of 90 minutes under his belt.

“We will then review it after that.”

Meanwhile, winger Chay Scrivens remains on trial at Queen’s Park Rangers.

The 19-year-old joined City on loan from West Bromwich until the end of the season in February and has made six substitute appearances since then.

But Scrivens has missed Worcester’s last two games as he looks to “secure his future” at QPR.

“Chay is still signed until the end of the season, but has got this opportunity to go to QPR,” Snape said.

“He has been down there this week and I have not bothered the lad because he is looking to secure his future at the Championship club.”
