'I want to extend my stay' - Petrasso

10 March 2014

The City loanee hopes to extend his stay at the club from Championship side QPR...

Coventry City midfielder Michael Petrasso has revealed he wants to extend his stay at the Sky Blues ahead of the trip to Gillingham.

The two clubs agreed an initial 28-day loan deal and the game against the Gills is set to be the last match of his current deal.

The club are hopeful of extending the loan deal for the Canadian who has started all five of the games he has played for the club, including a goal against Tranmere.

The 18-year old hopes a deal can be reached so he can continue performing for the Sky Blues.

Petrasso said: “Tomorrow is the last game of the current deal. It has gone really quickly because I've really enjoyed it.

“I'm hoping the two clubs can come to an agreement so I can stay here until the end of the season. If the decision was mine, I would definitely stay here.

“But I have to wait and see what both clubs say. I didn't expect to play so many games so it is been such a good experience for me.

“I like the way the manager tries to get us to play and I think I've improved, even though it has been quite a short amount of time.”

The winger was on loan at Oldham Athletic earlier in the season and made his Football League debut at Priestfield against Gillingham for the Latics.

Petrasso scored the winner in a 1-0 win for Lee Johnson’s side and the winger is hoping to have the same impact tomorrow night.

He added: “It was my first ever League game at Gillingham was a great experience. I scored the winner as well so I couldn’t ask for a better debut.

“Going back there will be good and hopefully, I’ll be able to produce the same type of performance for Coventry.

“It is a good ground and there was a great atmosphere when I was there for Oldham. We definitely want to get the win as we were disappointed to lose against Colchester.

“It is another tough away trip but if we can get the three points, they could be crucial in our season.”
