Andy Cole has urged Bradley Wright-Phillips to try his hand at Championship football.Andy Cole has urged Bradley Wright-Phillips to try his hand at football in The Championship to bolster his physical attributes.
The vastly-experienced striker believes a stint at lower league football will provide his team-mate with invaluable experience and increase his strength.
Wright-Phillips is currently down the pecking order under Stuart Pearce at Manchester City and the striker may be open to a loan move to gain additional first-team experience.
"I have told him if he gets a chance to go out on loan then he should grab it with both hands," said Cole.
"He should go to one of the better Championship sides because it would be a great experience.
"If he gets goals in that league he will have done well because some of the defending in that division is brutal compared with The Premiership and it will toughen him up.
"He is sharp, has a great eye for goal and within 18 months to two years, when he has filled out a bit more, he will be a good player."
