Fronting Up

JOHN Sheridan is “pushing and pushing” to add to Argyle’s attacking potency during the January transfer window.

The Pilgrims’ manager is still looking to fill the void created by Caolan Lavery’s early return to Sheffield Wednesday and he said: “I’m talking to a club at the moment regarding a striker, and I keep pushing and pushing trying to get him, but he’s not my player.

“If that doesn’t happen, I’ll look elsewhere, but I do believe we need another body in that area.

“We’re alright with Reuben [Reid] up there – we just need a bit of a target man. We do need to bring a body in in that area.”

The transfer window closes in a matter of days, that still would not stop John from keeping a look-out, as loan targets and free transfers can still come in past February 1.

“I think any manager wants to sign players and get them in permanent and settled,” he said, “but a lot of teams in the lower regions have to use a loan system and we’re not different to anyone else if we can bring someone in who can add strength or strength in depth and it can make us better.

“I think every manager would like to sign more players permanently, but that’s just the way things are at the moment.”
