Sturrock wants more from Mpenza

Sturrock wants to see more desire from Mpenza

Plymouth boss Paul Sturrock has urged striker Emile Mpenza to force his way into the starting line-up by showing his commitment in training.

Mpenza, 30, scored a late equaliser, his first goal for the club, against Charlton on Saturday but has yet to start a first-team game for Argyle.

"Whether he plays next Saturday will depend on how he trains in the next few days," Sturrock told BBC Radio Devon.

The former Belgian international joined Plymouth as a free agent in September.

Sturrock added: "Emile's come on and been in the right place at the right time, he's a clinical finisher, he's assured and every time he comes on he does bits and pieces."
