ARGYLE boss John Sheridan has admitted that he may have to tinker with his starting 11 for a crucial trip to York City on Monday......despite a 1-0 home win over Exeter marking the third success in a row for the Pilgrims.
Midfielder Lee Cox was withdrawn at half-time against the Grecians, having suffered a shoulder injury, whilst goalscorer Jason Banton was replaced midway through the second half, too.
Sheridan also cited the long journey to Yorkshire in close proximity to the Devon Expressway Derby as being a factor when determining his line up at Bootham Crescent.
On Cox, John said: “He’s got a bad shoulder injury – we’ll just have to assess him. He’s in a sling at the minute; he got a bad knock. He must be sore because he’s not someone who would come off if he wasn’t.
“We’ll get him x-rayed or scanned, whatever has to be done. He’ll be struggling for Monday, but it’s a squad. I expect whoever comes in to do the same job as the person who has just left the team, because they all know how we’re going to play and what we want to do. Youngy [Luke Young] came on and did well.
“Jason hasn’t trained all week. He’s got a bit of a stiff back. We’ll assess him.
“The hardest part of my job is leaving players out of the team. It’s something I don’t like doing, but it’s my job. I pick the team that I think will win us the game, but it’s hard leaving players out.
“It might be a case of changing one or two because we’ve got a long trip and it was a very hard game today.
“But whoever comes in, I expect them to fill the boots of the player who has just come out.”
