ANDY Marshall has turned down a loan move to Plymouth Argyle, writes Derek Davis.
Transfer-listed Marshall conceded four first-half goals, one from the penalty spot, a free-kick and two from poor defending against a strong Chelsea side, which included Robert Huth and Neil Sullivan, at Aldershot FC's Recreation Ground, last night.
Town fielded an extremely young side, apart from the transfer-listed Marshall, and were given a first-half lesson by a rampant Chelsea.
Steve McCall changed the formation at half-time going with one lone striker and beefing up the midfield and the young Blues held firm in the second 45 minutes.

Pilgrims boss Paul Sturrock has asked about taking Marshall and was hoping to get a new keeper in place before tonight's game at Peterborough United, otherwise he will stick with 20-year-old Luke McCormick, who played in their 2-1 home win over Luton on Saturday.
Marshall has been showing good form and renewed confidence this season since being taken out of the firing line and is desperate to get regular first-team football with the right club.
Argyle are among a number of clubs who have enquired about Marshall, including Fulham and Sheffield United recently.
