Plymouth Argyle set to extend the loan spell of Crystal Palace's Jason Banton
CRYSTAL Palace have given the go-ahead for Plymouth Argyle to extend the stay of on-loan winger Jason Banton.
The 21-year-old has scored three goals in five games for the Pilgrims, including in the 1-1 draw away to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday.
Banton had to be substituted in the first half of that match because of a thigh injury.
But Argyle manager John Sheridan is hopeful the winger will be fit for the visit of relegation rivals Barnet to Home Park on Saturday.

Banton's initial one-month loan to the bottom-of-the-table Pilgrims ends after that game.
Sheridan told Herald Sport today: "Jason is very happy here and Palace have agreed to let him stay.
"I have spoken to Jason and, hopefully, everything will go to plan and we will get him for longer."
Palace's former Argyle manager Ian Holloway has been pleased with the way Banton has settled at the Home Park club.
Holloway said: "Jason is doing well at Plymouth and is an example of what a loan spell can do for a youngster."
Meanwhile, Sheridan confirmed the loan spell of Yeovil Town striker Reuben Reid would be extended for a second month.
Reid's initial one-month agreement came to an end after the draw against Wimbledon.
