The 18-year-old picked up the problem during a development XI match on Wednesday and left the ground in a knee brace.

Argyle are still awaiting results of the scan, but Sheridan knows the news will be bad.

"He's being assessed," he told the club's official website.

"I don't think it's a nice injury for the kid, which is a crying shame - he's worked his socks off and got himself fit.

"We'll have to wait and see. We're still waiting for the results of a scan. We'll keep our fingers crossed and do the best we can for him."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
