Friendly Competition

13 January 2016

JORDON Forster’s arrival at Home Park sees manager Derek Adams complete his goal of giving Argyle more defensive depth for the end-of-season run-in.

The Hibernian defender moves to Home Park for the remainder of the season, but was unavailable for selection against Northampton Town, due to the Scot’s international clearance not being completed in time for the game.
 
With the Pilgrims unable to name a recognised centre back on the bench for their 2-1 defeat to the Cobblers, the addition of Jordon is certainly a welcome one for Adams, who is eager to ensure his current defenders have some friendly competition for their spot in the team.
 
“He gives us competition for places,” said Derek. “We’re very light in that area, and we’ll need that towards the end of the season. He can play at centre half as well as right back.”
 
"I think it’s important: you’re going to get suspensions at some time in the season, and you need to be pushed as a football player. By doing that, we’re taking in somebody to give them all a jolt to go forward.
 
“He’s played a lot of games in Scotland at the top level. He came through the Celtic youth academy, and he’s been schooled in the proper way. He’s been in and around the Hibernian team. At this moment in time they’re flying high in the Championship, and he’s been unfortunate not to get himself in the side at this time.
 
“His fitness is fine. There’s no issues there so he’s ready to go.”
