Special Lew

HE might or might not have meant his goal at Northampton which sealed the Pilgrims’ 2-0 win, but Lewis Alessandra can do special things.

That is the belief of Argyle manager John Sheridan.

“I think some of the things he does on the pitch with the ball, Premier League players can’t do,” said John, as Argyle prepared for Saturday’s home Sky Bet League 2 match against York City.

“I think he’s been excellent all season. He was getting a bit of stick earlier in the season, but I knew what he had and I know what he’s got in his locker, so I knew he would always come good.

“Like any player, I’d like him to believe in himself a little bit more, but I think he’s been brilliant throughout the season and I’m pleased he’s getting one or two goals.

“He’s got great body movement, and no-one ever talks about how hard he works for the team. No matter where I’ve played him, whether it’s down the middle, left or right, he’s always got on with his job.  They are the type of players you want in your team.

“So all credit to Lewi – and hopefully he can bang one or two more in.”
