WHEN you have only got 90 minutes to impress, you have to make an impact.Striker Rhys Griffiths did exactly that on Tuesday evening, scoring the only goal of the game in the Pilgrims’ 1-0 victory over Truro City.
The Port Talbot forward’s first-half strike, delivered to him on a plate from Jamie Lowry, certainly impressed manager Carl Fletcher.
Fletch said: “I said to the lads, before the game, ‘Rhys has come here on trial so give him the opportunity to show what he can do’.”
“At the end of the day, in the first-half, you can pass it as much as you want but you’ve got to get the ball in the box and that’s what we did for him to score his goal. He could have had a couple of others, too.
“As I said earlier in the week, he’s not looked out of place all week. He obviously tired towards the end – that’s understandable – but I certainly wouldn’t like to be marking him – he’s definitely a handful.
“We’re under no illusions, we know that, in League 2, for all the amazing football you can play, sometimes you’ve just got to have a fight and a scrap and hope that your players are sometimes bigger and better in the air than other team, so it’s important that we have players who can do all different things.”
