THE decision to send off Neal Trotman in opening minutes of Argyle’s 4-0 Sky Bet League 2 defeat to York City will not be met by criticism by John Sheridan.

Trotman was adjudged to have denied Ryan Bowman a goalscoring opportunity in the 11th minute, and with the resulting penalty being dispatched by Wes Fletcher for York’s first goal, left the Greens with a mountain to climb.

However, the manager refused to disagree with the referee’s decision.

“I don’t know if [Trotman] got the ball, but it looks like a sending off to me,” said John. “You see them every week, so no excuses there.

“It had an effect on the game; it’s happened so early on, so it obviously makes things difficult for us.”
