Plymouth midfielder Tyler Harvey has described scoring against rivals Exeter as one of his best-ever moments.

Harvey has made just six first-team starts since his debut in November 2012, with Saturday's match marking his first of the 2014-15 season.

However, although scoring against Exeter was one of his best ever experiences, he says his celebration was something he would like to forget.

"If anyone saw my celebration it was a bit embarrassing," he admitted. "I tried to do a knee slide, hit the floor and did a complete front flip.

"I had a chat with him and River (Allen) as I didn't think they were sharp enough at all in pre-season," said Sheridan.

"I told them they need to wake up, they're both good players and they're good kids, I've got a lot of time for them.

"I told him to try and find space for himself and in the first half I thought he was tremendous.

"It was a great goal, a great little ball for the second goal and I thought he did a really good job."
