Experience and Competition

ARGYLE manager Derek Adams is looking to the experience of new signing Daniel Nardiello to bolster the Pilgrims’ promotion charge.

The 33-year-old Bury striker has joined Argyle on loan until the end of the Sky Bet League 2 season, adding yet more potency to a forward line that has taken the Pilgrims to second place in the division with nearly two-thirds of the season gone.

“It gives us a wee bit more experience,” said Derek, after Daniel completed the paperwork on his move from Gigg Lane. “He’s got a proven goalscoring record throughout the leagues. I think, at this stage of the season, we need some experience and game know-how, and he will bring that to us.

“He brings competition for places in the front line and that is something everybody needs. He knows the way to goal – he’s been able to prove that over a good number of years; with that experience, with that knowledge, he can help us in the run-in until the end of the season.

“I’m hoping he scores goals for us. To start with, he’ll find his feet as all new signings have done when they have come here. We allow them to settle in and then we try to get them into the team. He will be no different.”
