Top of his Game

LUKE McCormick is at the top of his game, according to Argyle manager John Sheridan.

The Pilgrims’ goalkeeper produced several fine saves – and one phenomenal stop to deny Jordan Chapell – as Argyle extended their unbeaten run to eight matches with a 1-1 draw at Torquay on Tuesday night.

“Luke made one wonder save in the first half,” said John, “an unbelievable save.

“He’s playing at the top of his game at the moment. I thought he played really well.

“He was a bit more involved than I would have liked, but that’s what he’s there for – he’s a very good ’keeper.”

Luke was beaten in the sixth minute by Elliot Benyon, who rammed the ball home after Daniel Mozika’s shot had been well saved by McCormick.

“It was a great save from Luke in the first place,” said John, “and then their lad switches on a little bit quicker than us.”

The lead last barely three minute as Reuben Reid levelled from the penalty spot after Luke Young’s free-kick was handled by the Torquay defensive wall.

John said: “Sometimes, when [the opposition] score and they hold on for a certain amount of time, it is hard to get back into the game but, luckily we got back in it quite quickly after they scored.”
