Tanner Here For The Duration
CRAIG Tanner is to stay a Janner until the end of the season.
The 21-year-old midfielder has agreed terms to extend his successful loan from Sky Bet Championship side Reading until May.
Craig said: "I am really happy to be back and am looking forward to continuing our promotion push."
Craig joined the Pilgrims three days before the start of the season, after featuring for the Royals against Derek Adams' team in a Home Park pre-season friendly, and has become an integral part of the club's rise to the top of League 2.
He has played in all but one of Argyle's 25 league matches, starting 16 of the Pilgrims' last 17 games in all competitions, and has scored four quality goals in total.
"I could do with a couple more tap-ins," he joked. "I think I've contributed quite well as far as assists go - now I'd like to add a few more goals."
Craig's first strike came on his Pilgrims' home debut when he netted a superb volley in August's Capital One Cup tie against Gillingham.
His debut Argyle league goal came at Stevenage in September and he made it a hat-trick of firsts the following month - and secured living legend status among the Green Army - by netting in the home Johnstone's Paint Trophy victory over Exeter City before another League 2 strike against Morecambe.
Craig has been with Reading since the age of eight and signed his first professional contract, for Brendan Rodgers, as a 16-year-old. That contract was extended last year until the end of the 2016-17 season.
