Albion youngster Stefan Ljubicic is making great strides under the guidance of Mark McGhee at Eastbourne Borough.

The on-loan centre-forward scored his first goal for the Vanarama National League south outfit as they drew 1-1 at home to Chelmsford City.

McGhee, the former Scotland striker and Albion manager, is working hard with Ljubicic during his stint as interim boss at Borough.

Danny Bloor, who is McGhee’s assistant at Priory Lane, believes the results are there for all to see.

Bloor told The Argus: “Stefan has done really well for us without scoring so I was pleased to see him get his first for the club. There will be more to come from him.

“I’ve seen it for myself. Mark was a top striker and, if Stefan can’t learn from him, he can’t learn from anybody.

“Its quite noticeable Mark has devoted time to working with Stefan, doing bits together.

“To me just watching, it is benefitting Stefan tremendously.

“It is a measure of Mark. He has worked with top players and he is really enjoying working with Stefan and I’m sure he will make him a better player.”

Ljubicic opened the scoring on four minutes after a fine move but Chelmsford scored a second-half leveller as the assistant ruled the ball had crossed the line.

Bloor said: “The strong wind was the major contributory factor. We had it behind us in the first half and played really well. We should maybe have got one or two more.”

“I thought we were the better team and, if the conditions had been better, it would have suited us.

“They are third in the league and we are where we are, so it’s building blocks for us at the moment.

“We got a god point at Hampton last week and this was a good point at home to Chelmsford.”
