Loanee Piero Mingoia wants to stay at Accrington for 'as long as possible'

Accrington have confirmed the extension of Piero Mingoia's loan from Watford.

Speaking to Press Association Sport last week, Mingoia suggested his initial month-long deal was due to carry on into the new year and he will now remain at the Crown Ground for a further three months until January 18.

The midfielder, who turns 21 on Saturday, has made five appearances for the Reds and scored in the recent 3-2 defeat to Rochdale. "I didn't know what to expect when I came here but it's been great," said Mingoia.

He added: "I've enjoyed my time here and would like to stay here as long as possible and play as many games as I can.

"At Watford the places were very limited but here I've had a taste of first-team football and I want to get as much of it as I can."

Stanley boss Paul Cook said: "We're very pleased that Piero's staying. He's done well for us so far and hopefully he can continue to improve in the future."
