Good Gurrieri

ANDRES Gurrieri is in a rich vein of form – a run which Argyle manager Carl Fletcher hopes will continue against the Argentine’s former club on Wednesday evening.

Andres made 14 appearances for Burton Albion last season and, since eventually signing for the Pilgrims this summer, has scored twice in ten starts so far this term.

Fletcher said: “I think he’s done well.

“He’s settled in and especially recently, he’s found a bit of good form.

“If I was playing against him I’d be worried about him with his energy and his enthusiasm and quality on the ball.

“He keeps the football and he always wants it too.

“Whenever he’s involved, whether it be in the team or on the bench, he has a smile on his face and always gives 100 per cent.

“We are very lucky to have him.”

Gurrieri’s midfield colleague Jamie Lowry continued his comeback from a long injury lay-off, playing three quarters of Sunday’s FA Cup tie against Dorchester.

It was Jamie’s second appearance since he returned to full fitness and Fletch underlined the importance of him playing games as he returns to action.

 “Jamie looked sharp again on Sunday.

“You know when he gets the ball he’s always going to try and keep it for you and do the right thing.

“We played Conor Hourihane and Jamie because Luke Young was on four bookings and we didn’t want him to pick up another, but each minute Jamie gets under his belt he will get stronger and stronger.”
