Cheltenham's on-loan winger Robin Shroot is hoping that his performances will not go unnoticed by parent club Birmingham.
The highly-rated youngster has impressed in League Two this season and scored his first goal in senior football in October against Accrington Stanley.
However, the 22-year-old is determined to up the ante over the festive period in an attempt to impress Birmingham manager Alex McLeish.
"I've been watched by people from Birmingham in most of my games here and I received a text from Alex McLeish after I scored my first senior goal earlier this season, which was great, so they are keen to see how I am progressing," Shroot told skysports.com.
Valuable learning tool
"It is nice to see that your parent club is still watching what you are doing and long may it continue.
"I think there are around 11 or 12 games in around the festive period and I just want to play as many games as possible in that cluster because playing first-team football is such a valuable learning tool.
"You can't beat playing regular first-team football and that can only benefit me when I return to Birmingham in the future.
"I want to do the best that I can do and learn as much as I can every week here because I know that I have got the ability to go as far as I want, but I just want to go back to Birmingham a better player and a more rounded player and I believe I can do that."
