Jake Wright believes his loan spell with Boston United helped him regain some of the self-belief he had lost at York City, York Press report.
The 22-year-old forward was recalled to the Minstermen’s starting line-up for Saturday’s 1-0 win over Southport in the first game since a month stint with the Pilgrims.
Wright was named in the first XI for all four Boston games that he was eligible for and scored twice in the process.
The ex-Harrogate striker’s longest run of consecutive starts for City, meanwhile, only stands at five following his arrival at last summer.
He has also been dropped seven times and admitted his temporary move provided him with a morale boost that he hopes will now benefit the club he is contracted to until the end of next season.
Recalling the circumstances behind his switch, Wright said: “Micky (Cummins) pulled me aside after training one day and put it to me. We then both made the decision that it would be beneficial for me to get some games and get my confidence back.
“Boston had come in for me a couple of times this season for a loan, as they also did last summer before I signed here and, having a manager believe in you, always gives you a bit of confidence. Hopefully, I repaid that faith with my performances there and I feel the loan did benefit me massively.”
