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.”
