Positively Nelson

ARGYLE captain Curtis Nelson has hailed the Pilgrims’ positive stat to their new Sky Bet League 2 campaign.

The 21-year-old skipper has overseen a mixed bag of results going in to Saturday’s trip to Bury, but has been pleased with a defence that has conceded two goals in three league matches; goals from all parts; and a unquenchable spirit.

“We have had a positive start to the season,” said Curtis. “Obviously we didn’t get a result at Cambridge but we picked it up against Exeter, and [against] Stevenage, we fought to the end – a never-say-die attitude – and we got a point.

“We’re unbeaten at home this season and home form is a big part of any team’s season.”

Argyle have found the net seven times in four games this season, including one from the skipper himself to round off the pleasing 3-0 home win over Exeter City.

“The strikers are doing well and everyone’s chipping in with the goals,” said Curtis, who is happy to downplay his contribution the goals-for column.

“I don’t think it matters who puts them in, as long as they go in. At the end of the day, it was another goal that closed the game off and we got three points.”
