It Will Come

ALL footballers with tell you that they would play in goal if that is what it took to play and Pilgrim' forward Alex MacDonald is no different.

Having started on the right at Bradford City on Tuesday evening, Macca was brought in behind striker Nick Chadwick midway through the first-half and came just a whisker away from snatching a point for the Pilgrims at the Coral Windows Stadium

“I thought tonight I put in a good shift and I was just happy to be out on the pitch,” said Alex.

“I’ve been dying to play up front, to be honest.

“I think that me and Chaddy have a great understanding with each other.

“He knows what I’m going to do and I know what he’s going to do so I enjoy playing with him.

“We have a good relationship on and off the pitch.

“Obviously, I’ll play anywhere but my favourite position is up top.”

The 195 Argyle fans who had made the 700 mile round trip to Yorkshire were already on their feet when Chadwick played Macca in but, sadly, it just was not to be.

Alex said: “We’re just not getting lady luck at the minute.

“If you look at their goal, it was scrappy as anything – it’s taken a deflection.

“The boy who scored hit it into the ground and it’s somehow gone in the corner. I don’t think big Reg [Rene Gilmartin] could see it.

“They are the small little things that aren’t falling for us at the minute so all we can do is keep working hard and hopefully it’ll come.”
