Willo Would Swap It All
15th September 2012
ARGYLE’S leading goalscorer would happily swap his individual place on the summit of the scoring charts for a team place at the top of npower League 2.Robbie Williams made it three goals from four league games when he opened the scoring at Home Park on Saturday against Port Vale, who stormed back from his 18th-minute strike to take the game 3-1.
A penalty from Jennison Myrie-Williams and goals from Ashley Vincent and substitute Ben Williamson in the second half turned a game Argyle appeared to have in their pocket on its head.
“They took it to us in the second half and deserved the three points to be fair,” admitted Willo.
“We let Port Vale come down here and nick it off us, basically, when we were in so much control in the first half.
“It’s going well for me, but goals are to help the team get three points. That’s what it’s all about, at the end of the day.
“I’d rather have no goals and us being up the top of the league.”
Some of the Pilgrims’ first-half play was sublime, as they toyed with Vale, playing keep-ball, and carving out a succession of openings.
After the break, it was a totally different story as Vale got back into the game, equalising from the penalty spot after Luke Young fouled Vincent, and then kicking on.
“It was a tale of two halves,” said Robbie. “We were perfectly in control in the first half, knocking [the ball] around well.
“The gaffer wants us to play, and we have got ball-players. Especially in midfield. When they get on the ball, they’re good.
“In the second half, I don’t know what happened, really. We took our foot off the gas; [Port Vale] must have had a good telling-to at half-time, I would have assumed.
“Luke will tell you himself that it was a stupid challenge. [Vincent] was going nowhere. I think it was a penalty. Luke will learn from that.
“It was coming together in the first half. It went a bit too nice, I think. Because we have got a young team, I think they thought it was going to happen again.”
