Pleased With Development

ARGYLE manager John Sheridan thought that there were many positives to come out of the Tuesday’s development squad win over Torquay United.

Since his arrival, John has heralded the usefulness of second string fixtures and there affect on players not currently in the first team.

Sheridan is currently preparing his team for the visit on Wycombe Wanderers in Sky Bet League 2 and is glad that should he need it, he has got a wealth of match-fit reserves to choose from.

John said: “It’s important that we get players games time, especially for those who haven’t played on Saturday.

“There’s nothing worse than training all week and then not playing on Saturday so it’s important that we arrange games and keep them on their toes.

“It doesn’t matter who it is against – it’s just getting them football and keeping them nice and bright.

“It’s going to be a squad game throughout the season – I’ve said that to the players who aren’t in the team; they’re going to be needed somewhere along the line and I want them to be ready.”

John was also pleased to see Paul Wotton come through his first 80 minutes of football since injuring his ribs at Southend United on the first day of the season.

He said: “It’s good to have him back because he’s vocal and he’s good when he’s in and around the place.

“I won’t pick Wottsy out because there’s lots of players who played well– [Curtis] Nelson, Andres [Gurrieri], Andre [Blackman], Maxy [Blanchard], Tyler [Harvey] – so they’ve all got a chance of being involved [on Saturday]”
