‘With Dean Smith leaving we will see how that one plays out, but all of the loan managers are delighted with how their players' seasons are going.

‘Someone might come in who loves Bali Mumba and if that's the case then that's the case, you have got to deal with it.

‘Until that happens, Bali will continue playing here and hopefully keep enjoying it and keep doing what he's doing.’

Mumba has featured 21 times for Plymouth this term, scoring four goals from right-back.
