Forward Fortunes

IT HAS been a mixed week thus far for Argyle strikers.

New boy Paris Cowan-Hall notched his first goal in Argyle green after coming off the bench, replacing Matt Lecointe in the Pilgrims’ 3-0 victory against Portsmouth on Tuesday night.

The man Paris joined Nick Chadwick, who also got his season’s tally underway at the first attempt, netting Argyle’s third and final goal.

Manager Carl Fletcher was understandably pleased that two of his marksmen had opened their account already.

 “I’m delighted for (Paris) to get his first goal. It’s what he has needed. He has wanted to do so well since coming down here, really take this opportunity.

“It was nice for him to get on the scoresheet. It just needed something to fall for him, and instinctively he put it away so that’s pleasing. For him and for Chads. Two strikers scoring is good for us.”

It was not just good news for Rhys Griffiths. He picked up a calf injury in training on Monday, rendering him unavailable for the Dockyard clash with Pompey.

“He got injured in literally the last couple of seconds in training yesterday,” said Carl, “We’ll have to see how that goes.

“It’s a real big blow for us. Rhys has been hungry for this, he’s really down about it. But we’ll make sure he gets right and get him back as soon as possible.”
