HE may have only played eight minutes, but Gozie Ugwu has already done enough to impress Argyle manager John Sheridan.

The on-loan Reading winger replaced Reuben Reid in the 82nd minute of the Pilgrims’ 2-1 victory over Aldershot Town but Sheridan is already keen to keep the young striker past his current loan expiry date.

John said: “He’ll be involved on Saturday and he’s biting at the bit to play. I’ll make a decision tomorrow, or maybe on Saturday whether I’ll play him.

“I’m going to get in touch with Reading and explain to them.

“They’ll be having the same thoughts that I’m thinking – let him get games under his belt and take it from there.

“I haven’t spoken to Reading yet but I don’t imagine there being a problem.

“Gozie’s happy enough but it think it’s just trying to get a game and he’s trained all week so will be pushing for place.

“When he came in, the idea was for him to get games under his belt and try and score goals. Unfortunately, he’s been injured so it’s been hard to judge him.

“He hasn’t trained much but he’s now got a full week in, he got on against Aldershot so it’s probably the best and most positive he’s felt since he’s been here so hopefully he can get involved on Saturday.”
