Plymouth Argyle manager Steven Schumacher has admitted that the club could potentially make a move for a striker before the transfer window closes if the right player becomes available.
Schumacher has already stamped his own authority on the Pilgrims’ squad this month by sealing moves for Alfie Lewis and Romoney Crichlow.
Whilst Lewis has joined Plymouth on a permanent basis, Crichlow is set to feature for the club for the remainder of the campaign before returning to his parent-club Huddersfield Town later this year.
Certainly not short of attacking options, Schumacher is currently able to call upon the services of Ryan Hardie, Luke Jephcott, Niall Ennis and Jordon Garrick.
Hardie has scored 12 goals in all competitions for Plymouth this season whilst Ennis and Garrick have both managed to produce some impressive performances in the third-tier.
With the Pilgrims set to face Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow, it will be intriguing to see whether they are able to secure a fourth victory on the bounce in this particular fixture.
Ahead of his side’s trip to Hillsborough, Schumacher has shared an update on his transfer plans.
Speaking to Plymouth Live, the Pilgrims boss said: “We have got a few weeks left yet until the end of the window.
“We don’t just want to bring people in just for the sake of it.
“Now, if a striker becomes available that we feel is going to help the team then, yeah, we will look at it.”
When you consider that Kieran Agard left Plymouth earlier this week upon the expiry of his contract, there is room for a new striker at Home Park.
However, Schumacher’s stance regarding a potential move is spot-on as the Pilgrims should only be looking to bolster their options in this particular position if they are to bring in a player who is capable of thriving at this level.
If Plymouth are unable to find an individual who is willing to make the move to the club in the current transfer window, they will need their current crop of strikers to deliver the goods in the coming months.
Providing that the likes of Jephcott and Hardie are able to maintain their form at this level, there is no reason why Argyle cannot clinch a play-off place later this year.
