Recovery Position

ARGYLE’S injury worries lessened on two fronts at Barnsley on Tuesday, when the Pilgrims picked up their fourth Sky Bet League One point of the season.

Firstly, Tafari Moore returned from a stomach problem with a strong showing at right-back in a 1-1 draw; secondly, the ten players absent through injury were barely missed as the whole team looked a cohesive unit

Manager Derek Adams said: “Tafari Moore is 20 years of age. He went to Bristol City and [Callum] O’Dowda is a Republic of Ireland international – couldn’t run him; the winger [at Barnsley] couldn’t run him.

“He’s strong; he’s determined; he’s only young.

“Ash Smith-Brown, on the other side, had another good game. They are both youngsters who have been at Premier League clubs.

“[Ryan] Edwards and Peter Grant were very good defensively; they had to deal with Kieffer Moore – a £750,000 buy.

“And I thought [Yann] Songo’o, [Stuart] O’Keefe and [David] Fox ran the game in the midfield – Songo’o won the ball; O’Keefe, running about, passed the ball forward; and so did David Fox.”
