Time to Strike

JOHN Sheridan revealed he will be looking into the possibility of bringing in a new striker after Argyle’s 2-1 defeat by Exeter City.

The Greens’ only goal of their loss came from Reuben Reid, who bagged his 20th of the campaign, becoming only the third player to reach that season for Argyle in the last 30 years – the last being Steve Castle in the 1993-94 campaign.

After the game, Sheridan recognised that his side cannot lean too much on Reuben’s form, and will be considering bringing in other attacking options before the loan transfer deadline on Thursday.

“I can’t keep relying on Reuben,” said John.” He was the only threat we had tonight, so I’ve got to look at that.

“If I can bring someone in before Thursday, I’ll try and do that.”

The Pilgrims’ attacking options have no doubt also been hindered by the loss of Lewis Alessandra, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, and the boss admitted that choosing a side without Lewis may force him to delve into the loan market this week.

John said: “Lewi has been a big loss for us. He keeps hold of the ball so well for us, and keeps the ball in the opposition’s half.”
