Man Utd defender Chester backed to make Plymouth impact

Manchester United fullback David Gray says teammate James Chester will make an impact at Plymouth Argyle.

Manchester United fullback David Gray says teammate James Chester will make an impact at Plymouth Argyle.

Gray told The Herald: "He's a no-nonsense centre-half and has been captain of the reserves for the last year and a half.

"It will be good to see how he does. I'm sure he will do really well at this level."

Chester has played once for Manchester United at first team level, as a substitute in a home 4-2 win against Derby County in the Carling Cup semi-final second leg in January.

He also made five starts for Peterborough United while on loan to the then League One club at the end of last season.

Asked whether Chester could make a similar impact to Craig Cathcart at Argyle, Gray replied: "I don't see why not.

"He played in the Carling Cup last season, so the fact the manager (Sir Alex Ferguson) gave him a chance shows he has got a bit about him.

"I think this is the next step he needs."
