Grimsby Town boss Paul Hurst reckons Tristan Abrahams has a "point to prove" after joining on loan from Carlisle United.

The Blues last night allowed the 23-year-old frontman to move to Blundell Park until the end of the season.

And Mariners boss Hurst says the United man is keen to reignite his career with the National League's ninth-placed club.

"He is someone whose career, by his own admission, has just stuttered a bit," Hurst told Grimsby's website.

"Hopefully he can kickstart that with us. He's got a point to prove and I'm looking forward to seeing him in a Grimsby Town shirt."

Hurst believes Abrahams will add "pace and power" to his frontline after moving for a frontman who scored four goals in 27 United appearances this term.

The striker himself said the move had been in the pipeline for a week or so.

He said: "It was just a lack of opportunities at the back end of it [at Carlisle] and I just want to play as many games as possible.

"I feel like I'll get the chance to do that here."

Abrahams could make his debut against Bromley tomorrow.
