Sheridan let down by reluctant loan striker
John Sheridan has been frustrated in his attempts to add a new striker to his Plymouth Argyle squad.
The Pilgrims' manager had been in talks with a League One club about taking an experienced player on loan.
Sheridan had hoped to complete the deal before the away game against Mansfield Town at Field Mill today (3pm).
The striker was given the go-ahead by his club to sign for Argyle but it is understood he decided he did not want to move to the Westcountry.

The geographical position of Plymouth has been an age-old problem for the Pilgrims.
Argyle are the lowest scorers in League Two this season with eight goals in 13 games, a tally which includes two penalties.
Sheridan has repeatedly bemoaned his team's inability to convert the chances they have been creating. So he was keen to add another striker to his squad, but the former Oldham Athletic and Chesterfield manager must now go back to the drawing board.
Sheridan currently has only three out-and-out strikers to select from. They are loan signings Paul Hayes and Reuben Reid, plus first-year professional Tyler Harvey.
Matt Lecointe (cruciate knee ligaments) and Marvin Morgan (shoulder) are both long-term injury absentees, while Nick Chadwick has been loaned to Conference Premier club Tamworth until January 1.
