Durrell Returns

5 October 2012

IT looks like being a case of right back to the old routine for the Pilgrims on Saturday.

Defender Durrell Berry, who missed Tuesday's midweek draw at Wycombe through suspension, can return to colours, and probably will.

Durrell, 20, has shared the right-back role this season with Curtis Nelson, who has deputised whenever he has been needed.

Teenager Nelson, a centre-back by inclination, played at Wycombe on Tuesday and in the first four Argyle matches of the season, when Durrell was injured.

"Durrell is the only natural right-back we have got at the club," said manager Carl Fletcher.

"Obviously, Nelse has filled in a little bit this season and done it admirably, but that's Durrell's specific position.

"Unfortunately, Durrell didn't have a lot of pre-season and the fact he missed the game on Tuesday has probably done him a favour."

One right-back option that has not been open to Fletch this season is Jamie Lowry, who damaged his ankle ligaments in pre-season and has yet to make his Argyle debut following his summer switch from Chesterfield.

The 25-year-old utility player is thankfully making steady progress.

"I think we will start full contact training with him," said Fletch.

"He’s been obviously involved in non-contact, but full contact will begin next week."
