John Sheridan targets two more new signings

Manager John Sheridan is aiming to add two more new players to his squad at Plymouth Argyle this week.

Sheridan admitted he would put special emphasis on bolstering his attack.

Forward Warren Feeney suffered an ankle injury early in the vital 2-1 npower League Two victory over Morecambe at Home Park on Saturday and had to be substituted.

Argyle will have to wait for medical checks to find out the full extent of the damage. Sheridan had already seen striker Nick Chadwick ruled out by a six-match suspension, after he was sent off in the 4-0 defeat at Port Vale the previous Saturday.

Feeney was replaced by 17-year-old Tyler Harvey in the eighth minute of Saturday's game. The combined age of Argyle's two strikers – Harvey and debutant Ronan Murray, the loan signing from Ipswich Town – was 38.

The newly appointed Pilgrims' boss knows that he needs to boost the firepower at his disposal as Argyle fight to escape relegation from the Football League.

Murray and experienced centre-back Guy Branston made their debuts against Morecambe.

Sheridan said: "I'm hoping I will get two more players. Defensively, we need another body and I've got to look at attacking players.

"Chaddy is out for five more games, I've got Warren out, and Tyler is a young kid.

"I like him [Harvey] – but is he the right player to get us out of this position? I've got to be careful with him."

Sheridan admitted losing Feeney, especially so early in the contest, had been a blow for the Pilgrims. He said: "I love his enthusiasm, in training and in the changing room. It's a shame he has got injured. You could see he was in a bit of pain."
