Injury-plagued Sky Bet League One strugglers Plymouth Argyle are set to receive a boost in their battle to climb the table with striker Ryan Taylor on the verge of a playing return according to Plymouth Live.

The 30-year-old Rotherham-born frontman has spent more than a month on the sidelines with a reoccurrence of an ankle injury which has previously troubled the player throughout the summer.

Taylor was a substitute for Argyle but was not risked as they defeated Sky Bet League One club Stevenage at Home Park in the Emirates FA Cup first round on Saturday, however, the player is set to return to action at Newport County in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening.

The forward has made nine appearances for The Pilgrims so far this season, although he is yet to net his first goal of the campaign. Taylor was used on 23 occasions by Argyle last term while he contributed five league goals to the cause.

Derek Adams’ relegation-threatened side have battled against what seems like an endless injury list during the last 12-18 months. While Taylor may not provide the regular goals required to help his side climb the table, the player will give his manager another option and could certainly be used to rattle one or two of the league’s defences.
