Flood tips Conway for big impact

Flood tips Conway for big impact

Former Dundee United midfielder Willo Flood says that Craig Conway would be a real force in the Championship should he join him at Middlesbrough.

Boro manager Gordon Strachan would probably need to find in excess of a million to take the Scottish international to the Riverside.

However, Flood clearly believes it would be a very sound investment on his behalf.

"I know Craig pretty well. He has the attributes to be a big success here," he told the Scottish Sun. "You could argue he's a dying breed, a traditional winger. It's very rare the way he is comfortable on either side, he's so two-footed.

"Defenders just don't know which way he's going and when you add his skill and his strength he's got the lot as far as the future is concerned," Flood continued. "It's a tough league here but good players always shine when they're on their game.

"Craig can bring so much to a team with the way he plays the game."
