Nothing In It

AN altercation between Luke McCormick and Neal Trotman in Argyle's 1-1 draw with Mansfield Town didn't go unnoticed by John Sheridan...

...In fact, he was pleased by it.

After a mix-up in the Pilgrims' penalty area ended with Trotman getting in the way of his 'keeper, the two exchanged words and a couple of (fairly harmless) pushes and shoves.

"I see nothing wrong with that," said Shez. "I wish it happened a few more times, to tell you the truth - preferably not with each other!"

"They were both booked, and it's gone now. If they were actually fighting each other I'd fine them both, but they weren't. That's just part of football.

"I think it was just a case of one player calling for the ball and the other not calling for it.

"It happens all the time. It's nothing, and I don't see it as a problem."

McCormick had to be substituted soon after with a dislocated finger, and John was sure that this was the only damage done in the dressing room.

"I think Luke's dislocated his finger. He's just seeing the physio now to see if they can put it back in."
