Alessandra Set For Action

SUMMER signing Lewis Alessanadra will make his Pilgrims’ debut at Bath on Tuesday after sitting out Argyle’s first two pre-season games with a slight thigh injury.

He will be joined by defender Guy Branston, who has caught up with his team-mates after being waylaid by a virus, although midfielder Andres Gurrieri – who has had a similar problem to Lewi – is a less certain participant and Nick Chadwick is ruled out.

“Lewi will be involved on Tuesday,” said manager John Sheridan after Saturday’s 1-0 win at Tiverton. “Guy Branston will; Andres is maybe 60-40; Nick’s waiting for results of scan on his knee.”

John will also have another look at former Pilgrim Ryan Dickson, who has been released by Southampton and who played 70 minutes at Tiverton.

“He’s been injured,” said John, “so this was his first game. He got a good shift in.

“I don’t judge anybody on just this game, so I’ll have a look at him at Bath and possibly in the Milton Keynes game. And then I’ll make a decision.”
