"It's down to the player now. We just need a little lift from somewhere.

Argyle are the lowest scorers in League Two, with eight goals in 13 games, and only two in the last seven.
When pressed on who the potential new recruit was, Sheridan replied: "I can't say too much more because it's only a phone call.
"I have spoken to the other manager and he has agreed but, like it is always, you have just got to wait on the player.
"Hopefully, some positive news will come, but if it doesn't we will just kick on and I will try to pick a team that will get us a result at Mansfield."
