Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan has praised on-loan forward Zak Ansah after he scored on his debut.

The 20-year-old, who is netted the third goal in the Pilgrims' in League Two.

"It was a really good performance," Sheridan told BBC Radio Devon.

"It's his first-team debut - he's played under-21 football, but it's totally different this - and I thought you could see the little bits in him."

Ansah, who began his career at Arsenal before joining his current parent club Charlton Athletic last year, has also been involved with Ghana's Under-20 squad.

"He's an intelligent footballer, but I think we were on top of the game and he just enjoyed it," added Sheridan.

"He fitted in and he saw opportunities and had two great strikes and two good saves from the keeper. Then he's timed his run perfectly for the ball and it's a little glancing header."
