Resolute Reid

ARGYLE losing their Football League status is “not an option”, according to Reuben Reid.

The scorer of the Pilgrims’ second goal in their impressive 2-0 win at Southend on Tuesday night is determined to play his part in keeping Argyle in npower League 2.

With just seven games to go this season, the Greens are two points outside the relegation zone, still some way certain of securing their league future.

“We have got to go into games and take the games to the other teams,” said Reuben, who is on loan at Home Park from Yeovil for the remainder of the campaign.

“Every game is going to be massive – we can’t have a club like ours going down into the Conference. I don’t think that’s an option.

“All the players are pushing together to make sure that’s not the case.”

Reuben believes the home victories over Barnet and Fleetwood that preceded Tuesday’s win over the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy finalists prove that the Pilgrims’ form is getting better.

“The good thing for the lads is the performances at the moment,” he said. “In the Barnet game, against Fleetwood, and obviously tonight, we have performed to a decent standard.

“It’s scrappy – we are in a relegation fight – and things aren’t always going to go our way, but hopefully we can keep the level of performance up and build on it.”
