LUKE Young is hoping his Derby Day goal and performance will win him a place in Argyle’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie starting line-up at Swindon on Tuesday.With manager John Sheridan planning to make changes following Saturday’s 3-1 Sky Bet League 2 defeat at Exeter, the substitute scorer of the Pilgrims’ goal is eager for a first start of the season.
“Losing is a kick in the teeth,” said Luke, whose 69th-minute free-kick pulled the Pilgrims level at St James Park, “but, luckily we’ve got a game on Tuesday when we’ve got to put things right and put out a performance.”
The goal came seven minutes after Luke’s introduction from the bench along with Reuben Reid, and both substitutes played a significant part in putting Argyle in control of the match until a disastrous last ten minutes when Exeter scored twice.
Luke said: “When you come on and change games like that and play well, you always look at hoping to play in the next game.
“It’s just a case for me of keeping doing what I’m doing and, if I do play, give my best; if I don’t, then come of the bench and give the manager something to think about.”
