Plymouth Argyle wait on injured Tyler Harvey
PLYMOUTH Argyle are hopeful a knee injury suffered by highly-rated 17-year-old striker Tyler Harvey is not too serious.
Harvey had to be substituted in only the 11th minute of the reserves' 2-0 win against Torquay United at Home Park yesterday afternoon.
He was hurt in a tackle with Torquay centre-back Angus MacDonald and was on crutches after the game as a precaution.
However, Harvey could still be available for Argyle's League Two trip to relegation rivals Aldershot Town on Saturday.

The talented apprentice has been a regular member of the first team squad since making a goalscoring debut in the 1-1 draw with Torquay at Home Park on Boxing Day.
Argyle coach Kevin Nancekivell told Herald Sport: "Tyler had an impact injury to the side of his knee.
"I have spoken to Paul (Atkinson) the physio, and he's hopeful that it's not too serious. Tyler is on crutches but only as a precaution.
"Fingers crossed he could be available for Saturday. We will wait and see what develops over the next 24 hours."
Meanwhile, defender Curtis Nelson and on-loan Reading striker Gozie Ugwu could return to training with the rest of the Argyle squad tomorrow after recent injuries.
Nelson was ruled out of the 0-0 draw with Dagenham and Redbridge at Home Park on Saturday by a groin problem.
Nancekivell said: "Nelse has been feeling his groin for a couple of weeks so it was a case of pulling him out and giving him a week off to let it settle down."
Ugwu has yet to play for the Pilgrims after injuring an ankle the day before the 0-0 draw at home to Accrington Stanley on January 26.
Nancekivell said: "I believe Gozie is hoping to train on Thursday. He was back to Reading for treatment at the end of last week but has been in with us all this week."
Argentine winger Andres Gurrieri was the pick of the Argyle players in their victory over Torquay yesterday.
He was one of eight professionals in their starting line-up, while the visitors included 10 players who have appeared for them in League Two this season.
Argyle's reserves were much improved on their 0-0 draw with Saltash United last Wednesday, in a game which was played on a very heavy pitch at Kimberley Stadium.
Although bitterly cold, the conditions at Home Park yesterday were considerably better.
Nancekivell said: "The lads passed the ball well at the right times and showed a good desire to play the game the way it should be.
"There were a lot of positives. Jamie Lowry showed up really well but it's a job to pick anybody out.
"It's another clean sheet. Whether it's the under-18s, reserves or the first team, winning becomes a habit and keeping clean sheets becomes a habit."
