Bulvitis Dance

ARGYLE are still waiting for Latvian international Nauris Bulvitis’s registration to be completed.

The centre-back was obliged to sit out the Pilgrims’ opening-day Sky Bet League Two defeat at home to Luton Town on Saturday while paperwork between the FA and their Latvian counterparts is being sorted.

Argyle manager Derek Adams had yet to hear whether the situation had been resolved on Monday night, when the Pilgrims left Home Park for Tuesday’s EFL Cup tie at Championship side Reading.
Derek said: “We are hopeful that a conclusion will be very soon and he will be able to start playing for us.

“We are still waiting to hear back from the Latvian FA and English FA to see if that is possible. It’s very frustrating because I have had him here since July 1. Hopefully it gets sorted out very soon.”

If he is cleared, Nauris could make his debut at the Madejski Stadium, with Derek committed to a little squad rotation.

“We will make changes to the team for tomorrow night,” he said. “We’ll have a look at some players there. 

“We have a settled group of players at this moment in time, about 17-18 players who are ready to go and play.”
