Plymouth Argyle caretaker manager Carl Fletcher says it will be hard for the club to play without Northern Ireland international Warren Feeney.

The 31-year-old will miss Saturday's League Two clash at home to Accrington as he is away on international duty.

Feeney is the club's only experienced striker after joining Argyle in August.

"It'll be tough," Fletcher told BBC Radio Devon. "But we'll get on with it and it's an opportunity for someone to come in and fill his position."

He added: "Feeno works his socks off in every game, he's 31 and he's got a lot of experience."
