RUBEN Lameiras paid emotional tribute to team-mate Ryan Edwards after the Pilgrims’ 2-1 Sky Bet League One victory at Oldham Athletic.
Eddy is recuperating after surgery to deal with testicular cancer but was at SportsDirect.com Park to watch midfielders Ruben and Antoni Sarcveic score the goals that took the Pilgrims to 13th place in the table.
“We saw him just before the game,” said Ruben. “It just goes to show his character. He’s coming to every game. He’s a real, real tough lad. Our thoughts are always with him and we’ll see him soon.
“He’s always welcome and whatever he wants to do is entirely up to him. He knows the boys are behind him, the club is behind him – the staff and everyone are really trying to support him through this time.
“It has affected every single one of us. We just want to see him recover well. We have always got him in our minds when we are playing.
“When these things happen, football doesn’t matter. We just want to see him back, strong and healthy. He’s a great, great, great character.”
