Boss hails 'unbelievable' Conor

Plymouth captain Conor Hourihane's display against Port Vale has been labelled as "unbelievable" by proud manager John Sheridan.

The 22-year-old scored a stunning effort to give the Pilgrims a 2-1 lead in their third-round replay and while they eventually lost 3-2 it was not before the Irish midfielder had also won his side a penalty which Chris Neal saved from Reuben Reid.

The frustration of their cup exit did not dampen Sheridan's praise of his skipper.

"Conor Hourihane's performance is one of the best I've seen under my management in the last three or four years," he told the club's official website.

"I thought he was unbelievable. His all-round game was top-drawer: his passing, running, picking things up, driving into the box, running off the ball.

"He earned us a penalty, scored a great goal, put crosses into the box and was driving us on like a captain should do."
