Stick Together

ALTHOUGH he has been at Home Park only just over two years, Durrell Berry is already Argyle’s longest-serving non home-grown player.

That has its advantages for the 21-year-old defender. Not least of all when it comes to putting in the long miles on the road such as this Saturday, when the Pilgrims’ visit Scunthorpe United.

“It’s not really much of a problem after being here for so long,” said Durrell. “Most away games are quite far for us. It won’t make any difference to our performance.”

Last weekend’s 3-0 home defeat by Wycombe Wanderers – which came after successive Home Park shut-outs against Rochdale and Bristol Rovers – has bred a determination from Durrell and his defensive colleagues to right some wrongs at Glanford Park.

“I’m expecting a good reaction from the lads,” he said. “We didn’t get a good result on Saturday – we all know that, we’re all disappointed.

“We kept two clean sheets from two home games in a row, which was good, but the defeat on Saturday put a downer on that so, hopefully, we can get some more.

“It’s always good to try to bounce back after a defeat. Hopefully, the boys can stick together and get the result.”
