Left Wing Options

THE goalscoring return of Robbie Williams has given Argyle manager Carl Fletcher food for thought before Tuesday’s Capital One Cup tie at Burnley.

Willo, 27, came on at half-time of Saturday’s npower League 2 match at Oxford, pushing starting left-back Onismor Bhasera into midfield.

The switch helped the Pilgrims gain a foot-hold in the game, and, even though they lost 2-1, they kept a second-half clean-sheet, with Robbie scoring their first league goal of the campaign direct from a free-kick.

“It’s probably where we are strongest for competition in any area of the squad,” said Fletch, as he pondered his team selection for the second-round game at Turf Moor.

“Baz does well when he moves forward to left-wing. I know he likes to play left-back and feels that’s his number one position, but, like last year, if needs be for the team and we feel he can do a job there, we’ll put him there.

“It’s whatever we feel best for the team and what we need, attacking-wise, or in possession, or defensively.

“Baz is Baz. He’s a little bit off the cuff and exciting. He’s an athlete. He’s quick and he’s strong. He’s a little bit erratic at times, but that’s why he’s effective.”
