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.”
