ARGYLE’S remarkable 3-2 victory at Morecambe saw a Pilgrims’ debut for Watford loanee Ross Jenkins.However, after the Green Hornet’s goal and eye-catching performance on his first start, he was not able to line up for a second time against Southend.
“He’s got a little niggle on his groin,” said Argyle boss Carl Fletcher.
“He picked it up in the last minute [of training] on Thursday.”
Fletch is hoping that Ross, 21, might be available for selection on Tuesday, when Argyle visit Wycombe Wanderers.
“He’s got a chance,” said Fletch.
“He was like Baz last week. Do we throw him in and risk him, and he could be out a long time, or let him miss one and get him back for Tuesday?
“From what he tells me, Watford’s training isn’t as long and as intense [as ours]. It was his first game for a little while last week. We’ll see how he goes.”
Jenkins was replaced in the heart of Argyle’s midfield by Luke Young, and the gaffer declared himself pleased with Young’s reappearance – after being substitute at Morecambe - alongside Conor Hourihane in the centre.
“Youngy’s got loads of quality,” said Fletch. “It was lucky for us that we could let him have a little breather last week and throw him back in today.
“I thought both him and Conor showed great energy and worked hard and really dug in for the team when they needed to.”
