Shez Wants More Wottsies

JOHN Sheridan has cited Argyle legend Paul Wotton as the sort of player he will be looking to add to his squad this summer.

The Pilgrims' manager once again watched his side surrender an early lead in a 1-1 draw with Hartlepool United - Jason Banton netting after half an hour, before Jack Barmby's equaliser after 68 minutes.

The manager has made it no secret that he plans to bring in fresh faces over the summer, to help give his side more grit and aggression, which he reiterated following the game:

"I have known lots and lots of players - who I have played with and against - who on the pitch, are totally different than they are off the pitch, and we need that," said John.

"You don't have to be the best player to be vocal. We are very quiet, and I have seen it again today - very very quiet."

One player on the club's books who personifies passion and resilience is the man who has racked up 490 appearances in an Argyle shirt: Paul Wotton.

The veteran is a leader in the dressing room, and the manager sees him as the perfect example of what any incoming players should be all about.

Said Shez: "I need a few Wottons; just that drive and determination, and you become a different player when you are on the pitch.

"Even top players make mistakes, so I have just got to get a bit of character on the pitch - like a Paul Wotton."
