Warren Feeney: On the comeback trail

Feeney, 32, who suffered a broken bone in his ankle in January, returned to training sooner than expected this week after undergoing an operation to repair the damage.

Argyle are two points clear of the drop zone with seven games to go and the player says he is up for the fight.

"I'm a wee bit ahead of schedule to be honest," he told the Western Morning News. "I've joined in with the boys [in training] over the last couple of days. I've worked hard in the gym, as much as I could, but once you get out on that pitch it's different.

"Yes, I probably do need match practice, but there are seven games to go and in the position we're in I'm a big believer that's when you have got to dig in, if called upon.

"I'm never going to rule myself out. I will be the first one to put my hand up. You've just got to get through these things and with a month left I think it needs character from us all. I would definitely be up for the fight."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
