ANDRES Gurrieri was placed in unfamiliar territory for Argyle’s 2-1 win against high-flying Chesterfield, but looked far from out of place.

The Argentinean came in for Durrell Berry and played in the right wing-back position as part of the Pilgrims’ 3-5-2 formation that has served them well recently.
Although not used to that area of the field, Andres looked accomplished and reliable all evening, something that manager John Sheridan very much noticed.

“I thought he was excellent,” said John. “I was comfortable playing him there. He’s got great energy and he’s good on the ball.

“He’s probably one of the fittest at the club. He’s clever on the ball, too, and can take care of himself, but it was a very good team effort.”

Indeed, Andres’ inclusion was a further example of the depth-of-squad Sheridan has at his disposal, which could become a key factor in the Greens’ promotion push.

“I’ve got a strong squad,” he said. “You can see who I’ve left off the bench tonight – [Rommy] Boco, [Durrell] Berry, who’s picked up an illness, and [Dominic]Blizzard. They’ll be back, and they’ll all be back in contention, so I’m comfortable if I make changes.

“I’ve just got to make sure I’m keeping them all ready and prepared for when I need them, because I will need them”, with lots of games coming up.”
