WINGER WYLDE STILL HAS A ROLE
THE out-and-out winger is slowly being consigned to the past, but Plymouth Argyle boss Derek Adams believes there is still a role for genuine wide men such as Gregg Wylde.
Wylde joined Plymouth in the summer following a spell at St Mirren. And Adams believes having the Scot strike fear into the hearts of defenders can only help the Pilgrims’ cause.
“What people sometimes don’t realise is when he plays against a defender he scares them because of his pace, and that can shift them back five or ten yards,” said Adams.
“He’s our only out-andout winger. Nowadays we don’t see as many wingers because full-backs are more powerful and quicker than they used to be.
“If you cause a full-back trouble, they’ve got a problem if they want to go forwards. It’s a bit like cat and mouse where one goes, one stays and we’ll see who wins the battle. He will always cause problems.”
