Sheridan weighing up his options as loan deadline looms fast
Manager John Sheridan is weighing up whether to make one more addition to his playing squad at Plymouth Argyle for the end-of-season run-in.
Sheridan can only do that before 5pm next Thursday, which is the deadline for Football League clubs to make 'emergency loan' signings.
No player recruitment will be allowed after that point for the rest of the season.
Sheridan has recently been looking into bringing one more striker to Home Park.

But after Argyle's recent improved results, and the return to fitness of some players already at the club, there is a possibility he might not make another signing.
Sheridan will also have to decide whether to extend the loan of striker Reuben Reid from Yeovil Town for a third month.
The current deal for Reid – who scored his first goal for Argyle in the 2-0 win at Southend United on Tuesday – ends after the Easter Monday trip to York City on April 1.
Reid is one of five loan signings at Argyle, which is the maximum number that can be included in a match-day squad of 18.
Sheridan said: "There is money for me to bring in another player, but I have got injuries coming back now. We have got a strong squad."
Striker Warren Feeney and defender Curtis Nelson both returned to training with Argyle yesterday afternoon.
Feeney has been out of action since sustaining an ankle injury in the 2-1 victory over Morecambe at Home Park on January 12.
That was Sheridan's first match as the Pilgrims' boss after succeeding Carl Fletcher.
Nelson has been sidelined by a persistent groin problem since the 0-0 draw at home to Accrington Stanley on January 26.
He could be involved when Argyle play a 'reserve' game against Yeovil Town at Home Park on Monday (2pm).
However, that match will come too soon for Feeney to take part in after his lengthy lay-off.
Centre-back Anthony Charles has been ruled out of Argyle's trip to Chesterfield tomorrow because of a recurrence of a groin injury.
The 31-year-old hobbled off during the first half of the vital victory over Southend.
Sheridan said: "If we need another player, obviously it has got to be done by next week.
"I will look at what I feel as though we need. If I feel I don't have to bring one in, I won't do it.
"But if I can bring one in and it will help us get one or two results, I will do that."
