SWINDON TOWN: Cooper: Pompey move will do Storey 'world of good'
SWINDON Town manager Mark Cooper feels Miles Storey's loan move to Portsmouth will do the striker "a world of good".
Storey completed his season-long switch to Fratton Park this morning, ending Pompey's two-month pursuit of the player, and will now join up with the League Two club for pre-season training.
With Town owner Lee Power revealing on Monday that the forward has another year to run on his current contract in Wiltshire, keeping him at the County Ground until the summer of 2016, Cooper is hoping to reap the benefits of Storey's extended stay on the south coast.
"I think he knows he’ll be playing regularly. He’ll be playing for a big club in a league below in front of a big crowd every week. It gives him an opportunity to get into a rhythm and score some goals and I think it will do him a world of good," he said.
“I think he can score more goals, he’s still got to get that consistency in holding the ball up. It’s not all about running in behind people all the time. We are working with him but it’s about that ability to hold the ball up."
