SAWYER’S SWITCH IS NAT­U­RAL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

GARY SAWYER con­firmed he has no qualms about play­ing in the cen­tre of Ply­mouth’s de­fence.

The 30-year-old played at left-back all sea­son un­til be­ing moved into a cen­tral role dur­ing Ar­gyle’s 2-2 draw with Ox­ford last week­end, to cover the in­jured Peter Hart­ley.

Sawyer said he felt more than com­fort­able with the switch of po­si­tion.

“I like cen­tre-half. If I had a cou­ple more inches, I prob­a­bly would’ve been one orig­i­nally,” he said.

“I played there for Ex­eter and two or three games for Bris­tol Rovers there.

“It took a cou­ple of min­utes to get back into it, but I en­joyed it.”
