FOLLOWING Argyle’s 3-2 victory against Northampton Town, Paul Wotton has already set his sights on the team’s next fixture.The Greens recorded their third away win in Sky Bet League 2 this season thanks to goals from Peter Hartley, Lewis Alessandra and an outstanding individual effort from Andy Kellett.
Whilst strikes in the final ten minutes from Ivan Toney and Stewart Murdoch had put Argyle on the ropes towards the end, they stood firm to move up to fifth in the League 2 table at the start of the busy Christmas period.
Wotton, the Pilgrims’ first team coach, knows that while this win on the road was a vital one, the lads must look to carry that positive energy to Home Park next Saturday, as they host Dagenham & Redbridge.
“You just try and get some momentum building again,” he said. “It is three points today, and we have got a great game to look forward to on Saturday, against Dagenham at home.
“We spoke before the game about how the festive period is a chance to pick up a lot of points. Hopefully at the end of it, we are up and around the positions we want to be.
“Points-wise, today is a perfect start. We are ticking along all right. They are a great bunch of lads, and we are doing okay.
“All we are worried about now is Dagenham on Saturday. It is such a cliché, but you can only take it one game at a time. You cannot look too far ahead, because it will come back and bite you.
“Today is done, and we are looking at Dagenham on Saturday.”
