Cheltenham boss Michael Duff has claimed that West Brom loanee Josh Griffiths can go “right to the top” after his spell.
The League Two side drew 1-1 against automatic promotion hopefuls Newport County on Tuesday evening, keeping them three points behind the Welsh side.
Griffiths signed a long-term contract last year at The Hawthorns and continues to impress along with Finn Azaz at The Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
Speaking to the media after the game with Newport, as relayed by Jon Palmer on his personal Twitter account, Duff showered Griffiths in praise.
“I think Josh Griffiths has a chance to go right to the top,” he said. “He’s been brilliant for us.”

Griffiths may have been phenomenal this season, but it is hard to look away from what happened against Newport.
Tom King, his opposite keeper managed to score from his own box – something that Griffiths will not have been happy with.
The 19-year-old has kept nine clean sheets this season in his 22 appearances, also conceding 22 goals in League Two.
If Griffiths wants to prove that he can go to the very top, he will have no better opportunity than in the FA Cup this weekend.
Cheltenham have been drawn against Manchester City, and we can’t wait to tune in with the Baggies out of the competition and having two players at the Robins, bring it on.
