60 Minute Man

JAMIE Lowry made his comeback from injury in a specially arranged practice game at Home Park on Tuesday.

Jamie played for an hour in central midfield as the Pilgrims took on Devon Expressway rivals Exeter city.

The 26-year-old Cornishman had not played since July, when he damaged ankle ligaments in a pre-season friendly at Truro after coming to Home Park from Chesterfield.

The Argyle starting XI included Nick Chadwick and Joe Lennox, who had been substitutes in the first-team game at Barnet the previous Saturday, as well as Curtis Nelson and Jamie Richards, who have also played for the senior side this season.

A lively game saw Argyle come back from a 2-0 half-time deficit to draw 2-2.

The Pilgrims' first goal came from the head of substitute Tyler Harvey, before Nelson equalised with 15 minutes to play.

Coach Kevin Nancekivell, who took charge of the Pilgrims, was delighted with Jamie's showing after three months on the sidelines.

"He's not there yet, but it's great to see him back on the pitch," said Nance.

"He's been training with us for a couple of weeks and this was the next step.

"It was a good hour. I thought he did very well, and got stronger as the game went on."
