After making 44 League and Premiership starts and scoring 12 goals, he moved to Plymouth Argyle in September 1995 in a deal worth £100,000. While with the Pilgrims, he averaged a goal every three games. In March 1998, he joined Oldham Athletic, although his stay was short lived, joining Bury for £75,000 in November the same year. He made nearly 100 appearances for Bury before Neil Warnock brought him back to Sheffield united in October 2001 on a non-contract basis. In February 2003, he joined Port Vale, before joining Lincoln City in August 2004, where he failed to make an impact and was released.
