Attack! Attack! Attack!

ARGYLE’S latest goalscoring hero thinks the Pilgrims are set up to attack their way out of League 2 relegation trouble.

Jason Banton’s two goals saw John Sheridan’s new-look Argyle win 2-1 at Aldershot and maintain their hopes of avoiding a drawn-out battle to stay in the Football League.

Crystal Palace midfielder Jason’s winner was a classic breakaway goal, with fellow loan player Reuben Reid setting up the opportunity after a 40-yard run.

“I didn’t know the manager before but John’s definitely brought in players who he thinks can keep Plymouth in the league,” said Jason, 20.

“I’m sure that, if we carry on this way, in a couple of weeks time, we won’t be down there – we’ll be looking to push on and be safe.

“The gaffer has set us up really well for counterattacking, as you saw by the second goal. That’s what we’re good at.

“We’ve got a good shape, defensively, and we’ve got the players in Paris [Cowan-Hall], Reuben and Gozie [Ugwu], when he came on, who can go in behind.

“Plus, we’ve got players like Paris and myself who, with the ball at their feet, can do a lot. We’ve got players who can score goals and we can climb the table.”
