WHEN Argyle travel to rivals Exeter City on Saturday afternoon they will line up against a former Pilgrim in the shape of Alan Gow.The 30-year-old City striker, who made 14 appearances during a brief spell at Home Park, has already scored three times for the Grecians this season.
Argyle manager Carl Fletcher, who played alongside Gow for Argyle, believes the Scottish midfielder will play a big part in the game come match day.
“Alan put in some good performances,” said Fletch.
“And maybe he didn’t get the amount of games here he really should have.
“Paul [Sturrock] brought him in and I thought he was a really good addition to the side at the time because we were a team that had a lot of hard working players and he brought that flair.
“Obviously, with all players of good quality you have to take the good bits and the bad bits.
“Gowser is a real good professional and he works hard, he’s got some good talents so were going to have to make sure we keep a close eye on him.”
Also in Exeter’s arsenal is former Norwich, Colchester and Bristol Rovers striker Jamie Cureton.
The veteran forward has already scored 15 goals this term, a feat that Fletch is all too aware of.
He said: “Their front three - Cureton, Gow and O’Flynn - are dangerous and they work well together.
“They have players all over the pitch we have to be wary of.
“[Cureton] has done it his entire career; he’s a goal scorer and that’s what he does.
“We have to be switched on and make sure were ready.”
