Ronan: 'This Club Can't Go Down'

ARGYLE match-winner Ronan Murray has no doubts Argyle will maintain their Football League status.

Murray, 21, scored the goal – his first for the Pilgrims – that earned a 2-1 home victory over relegation rivals Barnet and lifted them off the bottom of League 2.

With 11 matches of the season left, the hope – and Ronan’s belief – is that the win will provide Argyle with the momentum to climb away from the relegation zone.

“I’ve always been confident we can get out of the mess we’re in,” he said.

“We’ve got the right bunch of lads who will dig in for the team and the fans. This club can’t go down.”

Ronan, who is on loan at Home Park from Championship side Ipswich, was set up for his goal by captain Conor Hourihane and team-mate Andres Gurrieri’s blocked shot.

He said: “Brano [Guy Branston] played a good ball down the line to Con and Con made a bursting run. The ball came across, Andy got a shot, and it fell to me.

“I just hit it and it went in – I’m delighted to get my first goal for Plymouth.

“I knew how much time I had and I took a touch. I knew, if I got my first touch right, the second touch should be a goal.”
