Defender Jordon Forster hopes to be celebrating Plymouth and Hibs title successes this season


Jordon Forster admits he is hoping to celebrate two league title successes this season after joining Plymouth on loan from Hibs.

The versatile defender has linked up with former Ross County manager Derek Adams at the English League One leaders in a bid to get much-needed first team action following a frustrating six months on the sidelines at Easter Road.

Forster’s only appearance for Alan Stubbs’ side this term came in July’s Petrofac Training Cup loss to Rangers.

That has not stopped the 22-year-old from wanting the best for the Scottish Championship outfit and Forster hopes the Pilgrims and his parent club are both toasting league glory come the summer.

Forster said: “The big attraction of coming to Plymouth was the chance to win a medal and get more game time.

“It was frustrating not playing at Hibs and it has an impact not just on your football life, but your personal life as well.

“You go home everyday and the majority of time your in a bad mood and you play scenarios over in your head about why you’re not playing, are you wanted? What’s going to happen?

“It effectively takes over your life and it makes football not enjoyable at times, and it can be quite stressful.

“I respected the decisions the manager was making but football’s quite a selfish game and that’s why I’ve come down here, to try and play more.”

Forster, who is out of contract at the Leith outfit this summer, leaves a Hibs team that are three points adrift of leaders Rangers in the second tier but the former Celtic trainee reckons his parent club can pip the Ibrox outfit to the chequered flag.

He added: “It will be difficult, Rangers have been good but so have we.

“It will be tight and both clubs need to keep an eye out for Falkirk – they’re doing really well just now.

“But I think we have enough in that changing room to do the job.

“I wish them all the best and when I’m back up the road hopefully I’ll manage to come and see a couple of games and see the boys.

“I was at Hibs a long time and I made a lot of good friends on and off the pitch. The staff were brilliant and it was hard to leave them.”
