Rhys Healey (Cardiff)
Cardiff boss Neil Warnock, a former manager at Argyle and loved by almost all of their fans, said on Wednesday’s night BT Sport coverage of the Plymouth vs Liverpool replay that he’d be lending the Pilgrims a striker to help them with their injury woes.
And they have been terrible of the last 12 months. It cost them promotion last season, and with Ryan Brunt and Jimmy Spencer out, they had to bring on 20-year old Louis Rooney and centre-back Nauris Bulvitis to play up front when chasing a goal late in the game on Wednesday.
Paul Arnold Garita come in on loan from Bristol City on deadline day in the summer, and has looked impressive at times but has only scored two league goals. David Goodwillie’s future is in the balance after a court judgement, leaving them desperately needing a striker that can bang in the goals.
It is thought that man could be Rhys Healey. The 22-year old spent the first half of the season on loan at Newport County, where he appeared in three of the four matches between the two sides this season. He has six goals from his 17 games so far this season in League Two, and Derek Adams is hoping that Healey can make the number nine position his own.
