TAREIQ’S GOT BIG BOOTS TO FILL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Ben Baker

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.”

POS­I­TIVE: Holmes-Den­nis
