Knowing What To Expect

BEWARE the underdog – it is not a new warning, nor an unpredictable one, but it holds good for Argyle’s FA Cup visit to non-league Dorchester Town on Sunday.

Pilgrims’ midfielder Jamie Lowry is as aware as all his team-mates that Argyle will need to be on their mettle from the first whistle at the Avenue. Everyone has completed the homework.

“We know it’s going to be a tough game,” he said.

“Dorchester are a non-league team and going to get the crowd right behind them and get in our face early doors, and it’s up to us to make sure we’re on the front foot and get on top of the game as early as we can.

“Winning games in any competition against any opposition is good for you. It gives you a lot of momentum.

“The manager has mentioned what they’re good at and what their weaknesses are – every game we have, he goes through the preparation and we talk about the opposition.

“We know they are going to be up for it. We know what to expect – we’ve all played in FA Cup games against lower league teams and it’s going to be a fight to start with.”
