Plymouth Argyle's Jake Jervis says he is enjoying his switch to a wider role.

The 24-year-old has scored seven goals since moving to Argyle in the summer, with the striker mainly being deployed on the right side of a front three.

He started in a central role for the first time this season on Tuesday after injury ruled out Reuben Reid.

"Since I've come here, I feel I've done really well out wide and it gives me a chance to express myself a bit more," Jervis told BBC Radio Devon.

"The first game there I scored two in pre-season so I was more than happy.

"From then that's where I've seemed to play. Reuben is great at holding the ball up whereas I'm more running in behind and using my pace."

Jervis has already scored more goals for Argyle than any of the 10 other clubs he has played for in three countries.

"He's played very well for us on the right-hand side and scored seven goals for us already this season," manager Derek Adams said.

"He's always a threat, he's got pace, he's got good height and a good touch on him as well.

"We do prefer him playing on the right, but sometimes needs must and you have to change because of personnel."
