Jeffers is on loan to Cheltenham Town and scored for The Robins' Reserves in a 2-0 win over City yesterday at Fortress Ryton.
Boothroyd who watched the game told the CT about Jeffers:" I am pleased with how he is doing. He needs to be involved in first team football and what he is getting there he won't get here yet, so he needs to go out and experience some real life, just as Jermaine Grandison is doing at Shrewsbury.
"I think Conor Thomas is slightly different because he is closer to the first team at the moment and Nathan Cameron has played a good 12-13 games."
