Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe has confirmed that Danny Mayor is likely to miss Saturday’s match against Newport County at Home Park after picking up a hamstring injury.
Mayor, 29, has missed the last two games and was not on the bench for Tuesday’s 2-2 draw against Crawley at Home Park after picking up an injury in training that morning.
“He has just picked up a little bit of a hamstring injury. We have got to make sure we monitor him properly. We are waiting on some results but the likelihood is he won’t be playing [against Newport].”
In more positive news, Lowe has said that striker Ryan Taylor and left-wing back Callum McFadzean, are back in full training with the squad. Taylor has not played since November after picking up an injury to his foot.
Meanwhile, McFadzean has been out since the start of December after picking up a knee ligament injury in the 1-1 FA Cup draw against Bristol Rovers.
“McFadzean will be training with us. He won’t be with us Saturday. He will have a full week next week, and Ryan Taylor will.”
in the last of the injury news, Lowe is taking caution over the fitness of Argyle Striker Dom Telford after he suffered another injury to his hamstring against league leaders Swindon Town on New Years Day: “Dom is on the way back but we are a bit cautious with him. We don’t need to rush him back.”
In transfer news, Lowe added that he is not looking to make any last-minute additions to his squad. This comes after the arrivals of Tyreeq Bakinson and Ryan Hardie on loans until the end of the season from Bristol City and Blackpool respectively.
Argyle have also extended Josh Grant’s loan for the same time period, with an option to buy from Chelsea at the end of it.
“We are not looking to add to the squad again during this window. There might be a couple of lads going out on loan – but that can happen even after the window closes.”
“We have to make sure lads like Klaidi Lolos get the right fit. There are a few clubs in for him. January has been good for us, we’ve been planning it since September.”
“We had our targets earmarked and secured them early. Tyreeq, Josh and Ryan Hardie – they’re here for the right reasons. You don’t want to overhaul the squad and disturb the dressing room.”
