TAREIQ’S GOT BIG BOOTS TO FILL
JOHN Sheridan admits he can’t wait to see Tareiq Holmes-Dennis in action, the Plymouth Argyle manager likening his loan star to Manchester United new boy Andy Kellett.
Holmes-Dennis does not officially sign on loan from Charlton until next week, but that isn’t stopping Sheridan from already waxing lyrical.
The 19-year-old left-back is set to fill a spot for Plymouth once held by Kellett, 21, who surprisingly joined Manchester United on loan from Bolton Wanderers on transfer deadline day, and Sheridan believes the two have much in common.
“He’s got pace about him; he’s young and very attackminded,” Sheridan said.
“If we are going to play a 3-5-2, he will fit in that system. He can play leftback, left wing-back and further up the pitch on the left side.
“He is a good addition. He’s similar to Andy Kellett – he’s comfortable on the ball; he plays simple when he has to; he’s got plenty of energy about him.
“He’s really positive in the way he plays, and he and Ben Purrington will be pushing for that place down the left-hand side. They are both young lads who are very willing and enthusiastic.”
