Sunday hopes for a shot at the football league with Brentford

NIGERIAN striker Akanni-Sunday Wasiu is heading for trials with League Two side Brentford before he decides on where he will play next season. The powerful forward scored three goals in 12 league appearances last term and also provided some key assists

NIGERIAN striker Akanni-Sunday Wasiu is heading for trials with League Two side Brentford before he decides on where he will play next season.

The powerful forward scored three goals in 12 league appearances last term and also provided some key assists as manager Steve Castle guided Saints to safety in the Blue Square South with a dramatic run of form.

Sunday has been lined up for a trial with Brentford when he returns from holiday in Lithuania where he is going for a relaxing break with his Lithuanian wife and six-month-old baby daughter. Sunday said: "I am on holiday time now and since my wife has had our baby we have not been back to see the family so we are doing that. When I come back I am going to Brentford to have trials to see if I can make it there."

City manager Steve Castle is looking for a fourth striker to complete his attacking options with current trio Paul Hakim, Simon Martin and Lee Clarke already secured for next term. If the move to Brentford falls through, Sunday is keen to continue playing at City where he enjoyed his time last term. He said: "I want to play for St Albans but the level they play is different to the level I played at home and I want to progress my football career. I am very happy to play for St Albans. It is no problem to stay and hopefully score more goals next season. We will see what will happen when I get back from holiday."
