Bolasie: Regaining fitness
Plymouth Argyle winger Yannick Bolasie is relishing his chance to shine as an impact substitute while he continues to recover from injury.
The French-born youngster was sidelined for the opening four weeks of the season after undergoing a knee operation in mid-August and made his fifth appearance off the bench last weekend in spectacular fashion.
Bolasie, 21, took just 14 minutes to make an impact in the 2-2 draw with Charlton, scoring a 25-yard screamer to give the Pilgrims a 2-1 lead with eight minutes left.
He told skysports.com that despite his impressive strike, he does not expect to start against Notts County on Saturday.
"I'm still in the process of recovering from injury, so being used as an impact player off the bench is probably the best for me," he said.
"I've been out since the start of the season, so it is just a case of continuing to build up my match fitness in the reserves and off the bench until I am back up to 100 per cent.
"I'm not sure how far away I am from being at 100%, but I'd probably say around two or three weeks away and a few more games under my belt.
"Obviously getting the goal against Charlton gave me a confidence boost and I am hoping to help the side as much as I can when called upon."
