Head Boy

13 May 2016

JAMILLE Matt, whose two goals earned Argyle a play-off first-leg draw at Portsmouth, faces an anxious wait to see if he will be available for Sunday’s second leg at Home Park.

The Pilgrims’ striker scored in the ninth and 19th minutes at Fratton Park on Thursday as Argyle recovered from conceding an early goal to Marc McNulty. A 50th-minute Gary Roberts penalty left the tie balanced at 2-2 for the Home Park return with a Wembley final awaiting the winners.

In between his goals, Jamille was involved in an incident with Portsmouth captain Michael Doyle which had the home dugout calling for a red card from referee Oliver Langford. The official took no action, but Jamille could find himself facing retrospective action – and a possible ban –  if the football authorities feel Langford was wrong.

Jamille called the incident “a bit of nothing” and said: “Me and Doyley have had a few battles before. He’s tried to rile me and I’ve tried to give him a little bit back.

“I don’t think it was anything malicious. The referee said it was no red card; he said it was nothing and I agree with him. We’ll see what happens. It’s out of my hands. I think it’s nothing.

“I’m just looking forward to Sunday now. The lads just need to recover now and go into that game looking to win it, like we did today. Whoever wins the game is through to Wembley.”

Jamille’s first was set up by Gregg Wylde, who headed Graham Carey’s cross into the danger area.

“The ball came in and I thought I’d try to get my head to it,” said Jamille. “I got my head to it and it went in, so I was happy with that.”
