Gurrieri's Goal

THE Pilgrims’ recalled Argentinean winger Andres Gurrieri made an instant impact during the second round of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy against Aldershot Town at Home Park on Tuesday.

Andres scored the third goal of the match that put Argyle on top 2-1 and ultimately put the club into the Southern Area quarter-finals.

Andres detailed his feelings after the victory.

“I feel very happy,” he said.

“I think now I am the happiest man in Plymouth.

“I am so pleased because I scored my first goal for Plymouth and it’s my first goal in England, as well.

“The team worked very hard and we won. We are going to the next round.”

The club has suffered an injury pile-up in the past few weeks, which has given squad players the opportunity to step up and show management and the fans what they are made of.

Andres said: “For many of the players, it was a great opportunity for playing. Many young lads were working very hard for that.”

“We had our chance. I think we did very well.”

Joe Lennox got into the mix and moved the ball with confidence and launched multiple attacks from the wing providing assists for both Argyle goals.

“Both goals were great play by Joe,” said Andres. “He did very well.”

Even though the JPT match did not affect the npower League 2 table, the performance by Carl Fletcher’s team will give him some tough decisions in picking his team for the away match against Barnet at the weekend.

Andres said: “The gaffer will have to think for next Saturday because I think many of us did very well. So it will be a headache for him.

“It’s good when the level is high. The gaffer has many players to pick and it’s very good for the team.”
