ARGYLE DUO HAVE TO STAY PA­TIENT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Rich Dore

DEREK Adams has con­firmed that Ryan Brunt and David Ijaha are un­likely to turn out for Ply­mouth again this sea­son.

For­ward Brunt, 23, dam­aged his knee lig­a­ments at Barnet in March 2016 and, while he should re­turn to full train­ing be­fore the end of the sea­son, match ac­tion looks un­likely.

Brunt scored ten goals in 39 ap­pear­ances for Argyle last sea­son and has un­der­gone a lengthy pe­riod of re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

Mid­fielder Ijaha, 27, had an op­er­a­tion on a pelvic prob­lem in Novem­ber. It in­ter­rupted a sea­son in which he had made seven ap­pear­ances.

Adams said: “If they get them­selves back into full­time train­ing there are a good num­ber of play­ers that are well ahead of them, so it’s not go­ing to be pos­si­ble (to play).

“We’ll get them back to full-time train­ing as quickly as pos­si­ble and give them the best op­por­tu­nity.”

Ply­mouth are cur­rently sec­ond in the ta­ble and in a strong po­si­tion to go up.

MISSED: Ryan Brunt
