If It's Right

ARGYLE manager Derek Adams is relaxed about the prospects to adding to his promotion-chasing squad before this weekend’s Sky Bet League 2 trip to top-six rivals Accrington Stanley.

While he is still pursuing his options, Derek is satisfied with the Pilgrims’ squad and hopes that one or all of Peter Hartley, Carl McHugh and Oscar Threlkeld will be available for selection after injury. 

“We are hopeful they can all be involved this weekend,” said Derek.”It just depends on their progress through the week.

“We’re working away and looking to see who’s out there who can strengthen the team. If the right player comes along, we will have him in the squad for Saturday; if the right player doesn’t come along, we won’t.”

On-loan Hibs defender Jordon Forster will not make the trip to Lancashire, however, following his injury at Barnet on March 1. He is, though, set to beat his manager’s original diagnosis that he could be out of action until the end of the month.

“He’ll be back well before then,” said Derek. “He has been assessed and we are waiting on his recovery.

“We have got a programme that he’s working towards to get back to full fitness very soon.”
