Braintree Town manager Alan Devonshire is hoping to see what Watford loanee striker Bernard Mensah can do for his team when they travel to Southport in the Skrill Premier tomorrow.

The Braintree boss wants to see more of the youngster before talking to Watford about the possibility of extending the initial deal.

He said: I haven’t spoken to Watford about it, but he will start at Southport and maybe against Hornchurch (in the Essex Senior Cup semi-finals on Tuesday).

“For his sake and ours, we want to see more of what he is about before we look at a longer spell."
