Plymouth manager Paul Sturrock insists his decision to loan midfielder Simon Walton to relegation rivals Blackpool will work in the club`s favour.
In a surprise deadline-day move, Walton joined the Seasiders until the end of the season, although he will be ineligible for the game between the two sides on April 4.
"I really think it's a good move for the lad (Walton) as he needs first-team football and I think Blackpool will play him in their remaining matches," Sturrock told the Plymouth Herald.
He added: "As he cannot play against us, I don't see how Walton playing for one of our rivals can hurt us.
"But I think there are two ways of looking at the move, because he could end up doing us a favour if he does damage to one or two of the teams around us in the league.
"Since Carl Fletcher came in on loan, Simon's chances of breaking into the first team have been limited. Hopefully, this move will work in the lad's and our favour."
