Forest Green Rovers striker Ben Wright has returned to former club Braintree Town on loan.

The 24-year-old has only played a total of 60 minutes of football in seven games since returning from a lengthy injury lay-off.

And Forest Green have sent him out on loan in order to improve his fitness.

"Should we feature in the play-offs, he'll be available and should be match fit," Forest Green boss Dave Hockaday told the club website.external-link

Braintree still have 10 Blue Square Bet Premier games to play following a number of postponements, including eight in 20 days next month.

"Ben knows the club and he's comfortable there. It's a good move for him, a good move for us and a good move for them," Hockaday added.

Wright scored 17 goals in 41 appearances for the Essex club before moving to Forest Green last May.
