Plymouth Argyle Striker Kieran Agard has discussed putting injury behind him and his fresh start in Plymouth after making his debut last weekend.
Agard signed for Plymouth on a short-term deal last Friday after being released by MK Dons at the end of last season whilst recovering from a knee injury.
Speaking to PlymouthLive, Agard said that he has worked hard to get back fit.
“That’s all behind me now. I have worked extremely hard to get back to full fitness,” he said.
“I was always confident that I would be playing somewhere, and I’m always confident I can score goals. I was just keeping myself fit and waiting for an opportunity,”
Agard also discussed how his move to Plymouth materialised.
“The Gaffer got in contact with me and asked if I wanted to come down and see the place and get to know the lads,” Agard explained.
“I came down early in the week and I looked around. The lads were fantastic, all the staff were great with me and it was just somewhere I wanted to be straight away.
“As soon as I came down here it was only Plymouth really,” Agard added.
After signing on Friday, Kieran Agard was introduced to the Plymouth faithful as an 89th minute substitute in Argyle’s 3-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday the following day – not a bad day to make your debut.
Having only signed a short-term deal until January, Agard will be looking to impress Plymouth Manager Ryan Lowe in the hope of earning himself a longer-term deal at Home Park.
