Careful With Carey
GRAHAM Carey’s availability for Argyle’s game against Bristol Rovers leaves manager Derek Adams with a fully-fit squad to choose from, as the end-of-season run-in draws nearer.
After the best part of two months out through injury, the Irish playmaker will make the trip to Bristol on Saturday for the game against the Gas – though Adams was obviously keen to conceal just how much of a part Graham will play.
“We’ll just assess that,” said Derek, “I’m not going to give too much away. He’ll be into the squad for Saturday’s game.
“He’s trained well; he’s been out for seven weeks and it’s a long space of time, and we’ll see how he reacts to training in the next couple of days and weeks.”
After a run of injuries throughout November and December, Carey’s return means the Greens have a clean bill of health as they enter the final third of a campaign that could well end as one of the most successful in the club’s history.
“We’ve got a fully fit squad now, which we’re delighted about,” said Adams. “I think it’s very good that we have a fully fit squad going into the last 19 games of the season.
“We have players that can change games, and can play in different positions. We have competition for places, and I think that’s vital. We’ve obviously done well over the festive period, and we’re ready for Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
“We’re just looking to the last 19 games, and trying to accumulate as many points as possible.”
