Ryan Lowe has provided updates on the injuries of Byron Moore and Joel Grant, following Argyle’s 1-0 defeat away at Newport County. There was a surprise when the line-up was announced, with Ryan Taylor and Dom Telford both featuring – neither of whom started the first two league games. While Joel Grant’s injury took place in the 1-0 win at home to Colchester, the reason for Moore’s absence was unknown.
Speaking to Plymouth Live, Ryan Lowe said, “Joel is not far away. He’s doing quite well in his recovery. Byron Moore, we just left him at home.
“He just felt he had a little bit of a tight hamstring and I’m very cautious that I don’t want to be risking anyone for long periods in time. It’s not worth it if there is some sort of niggle. We will get some results on him and see where he is Monday morning.”
Taylor and Telford both missed parts of Argyle’s pre-season campaign with ankle and thigh injuries respectively, with the ankle problem having caused Taylor issues for a number of years now. This leaves all four of Argyle’s current senior strike force with recent injuries, meaning it is no wonder that Lowe is being overly precautious in order to prevent any further, longer lasting injuries.
With a number of midweek games coming up, it will be important that Lowe has as many professionals fit and available for games as possible, with it likely that all four strikers will play in an important role in any success that Argyle will have in this period.
