Forster's First

15 February 2016

PILGRIM loanee Jordon Forster enjoyed the perfect start to his Argyle career, playing as part of a back four that kept a clean sheet against Mansfield in a 3-0 victory at Home Park on Saturday.

It was Jordon's first chance to pull on the Argyle jersey, and the big Scotsman looked at home straight away, putting in an impressive performance at right-back. His Scottish team-mate Gregg Wylde gave Argyle the lead, before a Ryan Brunt brace made Jordon's debut a highly satisfying one. 

"As far as debuts go and performances go I think that was up there," said Jordon. "It was probably one of the best of this season some of the boys were saying. I am really happy to have made my debut and get three points and a clean sheet."

Jordon arrived at Home Park on January 15 on loan from Hibernian, and has been on Argyle's bench for the past three games prior to Mansfield. Jordon said he had a feeling in the week that the Mansfield game would mark his debut.

"I had the slight inclination throughout the week during training," Jordon said. "Then, on Friday, Derek named the team. I knew I was playing and I knew it was going to be right-back, which probably is not my favourite position, but I enjoyed it today. I thought the team was really good and fully deserved the three points. We probably could have scored a few more goals as well."

Jordon nearly ended up on the scoresheet himself, but it wasn't to be, as his first half header hit the post. Still, the Scotsman says he was happy with his performance, and he is looking forward to the coming weeks.

He said: "I hit the post and had a couple of half-chances, but I was happy enough with my performance, and we move onto next week. We enjoy the three points but there is a lot of games coming up in a short period of time. It's a big opportunity for us to catch Northampton and hopefully get above them."
