Jean-Michel Sigere insists he can still be a force in Blue Square premier.

The Eastbourne Borough striker has been placed on the transfer list after failing to make an impression following his summer move from Lewes.

Sigere has been blighted by injuries since arriving at Priory Lane and has been restricted to just five appearances, two as a substitute.

The 31-year-old is yet to score a competitive goal in a Borough shirt and has been sidelined for the past five weeks with a hamstring problem.

The Frenchman was due to have talks with manager Garry Wilson and assistant Nick Greenwood over his future last night with a number of clubs keen to snap him up.

But Sigere is confident he can get back in the goals once he regains full fitness – whether that is at Borough or elsewhere.

He said: “It’s been frustrating for me so far this season but I am going to fight back.

“My aim is to get fit as soon as possible and then show what I can do because I don’t think I’ve really had a chance to prove myself at Eastbourne yet.

“I started the first game and was disappointed to get dropped to the bench for the next match. Then the team started doing well so I had to wait for my chance.

“After that I picked up a hamstring injury and now I am on the transfer list but I have not given up.

“I’m back in training now and we’ll see what happens but I just want to show people I can still play in this league.”

Sigere started only three games for Lewes last season following a knee operation the previous summer and was seen by some as a gamble when Wilson decided to sign him.

The Borough boss was hoping the former France under-21 international could rediscover the form which saw him score 23 league goals for the Rooks three seasons ago but fitness problems have undoubtedly held him back.

Assistant boss Greenwood said: “Siggy has been unlucky with injuries and what he needs now is to play games regularly for two or three months.

“It is a bit of a vicious circle because we can’t guarantee him first team football until he is fit but he can’t get fit unless he plays regularly.”

Sigere was one of four summer signings and none have made a huge impact so far.

Former Albion goalkeeper Chris Winterton has had to play second fiddle to Lee Hook while Mo Harkin has been in and out of the team.

Simon Wormull is yet to start a league match but that could change at Weymouth tomorrow.

The former Lewes midfielder was impressive when he came off the bench against Kidderminster last Saturday and then scored in the Setanta Shield win at Fisher in midweek.

He could replace Matt Smart in the centre of midfield as Wilson looks to break a run of five games without a win which has seen Borough slide down the table.

Greenwood added: “Simon is a quality player but we haven’t seen the best of him yet because of injuries. He did his chances no harm on Tuesday and will be in contention tomorrow.”

Nathan Crabb picked up a shin injury at Fisher but is expected to be fit to face a Weymouth side with a number of familiar faces.

Paul Armstrong and Neil Jenkins both played under Terras boss John Hollins at Crawley while Borough old boy Anton Robinson lines up in midfield alongside ex-Seagull Chris McPhee.

Former Crawley striker Pierre Joseph-Dubios is expected to lead the line with Stuart Beavon, who scored a hat-trick in the space of nine minutes the last time the two clubs met in the FA Cup 11 months ago.
