Max Effort, Says Guy

ARGYLE centre-back Guy Branston enjoyed playing alongside Max Blanchard when the Pilgrims faced Burton at the weekend.

Despite being a Pilgrim since January, Brano had not yet played alongside Max in the central of defence until Saturday afternoon.

The pair kept one of the division’s top scoring sides at bay until a heartbreaking late, late Burton winner.

“I’ve had so many partners since I’ve been here, it’s mind boggling!” said Brano.

“I’ve got a lot of time for Max. He is a great lad anyway. He wants to play centre-half and is an out and out centre-half in his head. He wants to be there all the time.

“[He is] somebody who is willing to stick his head in, but also willing to get the ball down calmly when he can.

 “You need that – I need that alongside me, as well. I need somebody who can get the ball down and start bopping it about because I’m more blood and thunder and he is a much calmer player.

“It was nice to play with him, it was really enjoyable.”
