Moses making waves on the south coast

West Ham United's on-loan midfielder Moses Makasi has been praised for his recent performances by team mate Jamie Ness.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined Plymouth Argyle on loan in January and has appeared on just three occasions for the Pilgrims since.

However Ness, who plays alongside the youngster at the heart of the Plymouth midfield was effusive in his praise of Makasi's efforts since he came in the side to replace regular first teamer Antoni Sarcevic, who has been absent as a result of surgery.

"He has done really well, the two games he has come in," Ness told The Herald. "He has not played league football before, so thatís obviously a massive step up from reserve level.

"Sarce was different class for us, probably our best player in January. To lose him was a big blow but Moses has come in and got the goal last week.

"He has got a lot of pace, a lot of energy and likes to get forward as well. He has slotted in really well. All credit to him, it has not affected us really. "

Plymouth have taken four points from their last two matches in which Makasi has started; a 1-1 draw at Fleetwood - in which he scores Argyle's goal - and last weekend's 3-2 win over fellow South West outfit Bristol Rovers, thanks to Graham Varey's late penalty.

Makasi, who first appeared for West Ham's Under 18s in 2012 as a 16-year-old previously spent a short spell on loan with Chelmsford City, back in September 2015.
