Taking Shape

DEREK Adams has made his first loan signing as Argyle manager, with Hiram Boateng arriving from Crystal Palace, and wants more.

“We’ve added well in the last couple of weeks,” said Derek. “If we can get one or two more loan signings over a period of time, then I will be happy. It’s possible that we will have two. It will depend on how things work out and the nature of the business. We would like one or two.”

The Pilgrims boss is now deciding where he will strengthen his squad next. “We’ll look in midfield,” he said. “As well as that, we’ve got to look in different areas; maybe it’s defensively or in a wider area as well. We’re looking at areas where we just need to have a ready-made player that can go straight in.”

“You’ve got to be careful and you don’t want to jump in, and we haven’t done that so far. We’ve been patient and I think that’s important, as well.”

Additional loan signings may be the final touches to the Argyle squad. “I’m happy with the progress we are making,” said Derek. “We’re starting to have the shape of a team. 

"The players are getting an understanding with each other. The training has been hard work for them and we’re working on the formations in training as well.”
