Nadir's Zenith

ARGYLE playmaker David Fox is looking forward to seeing the best of new team-mate Nadir Ciftci.

On-loan Celtic forward Nadir made his Pilgrims debut in last Saturday’s home defeat by Scunthorpe United, when only a tremendous save by opposition goalkeeper Matt Gilks prevented him marking his Home Park bow with a headed goal in front of the Devonport end. 

That came after only a few days training with his new team-mates and, although there were times when the Turkish No.9 was understandably on a different wavelength, Foxy is sure that mutual understanding will soon come. 

David said: “He’s settled in fine; he looks like he’s a good lad; he’s getting on fine with everyone; he’ll get used to the way we play and we’ll get used to way he plays. 

“There were certainly signs, when we got a bit of quality into him, that he’s going to be able to look after [the ball] and bring others into play, which is great. 

“Hopefully, we can give him some chances because, ultimately, he is going to be judged on goals and it is up to us to make sure he gets those chances. 

“I’m sure, if we do that, he will score goals.”
