Fighting Spirit

ARGYLE first team coach Gary Owers spoke of the team's fighting spirit, after coming from behind to draw 1-1 with Cheltenham Town.

A 53rd minute opener from Byron Harrison gave the visitors a chance to come away from Home Park with all three points, but the Greens simply wouldn't let that happen.

Sure enough, an 84th minute free-kick from Luke Young put the Pilgrims back on level terms, and they nearly took all three points. Reuben Reid’s shot went inches wide from close range in added time.

Speaking after the game, Owers said: "John (Sheridan) has been speaking to the players a lot about winning as many games as possible, and I think you can see that in our approach today.

"Late on, we're still trying to get something out of the game - try and salvage a point, then go on and try to win it."

Not for the first time this season, Argyle had to overcome the odds; with couple of changes and a switch of formation, they turned the game completely on its head.

"We weren't great in the first half and we know that,” said Owers. “We only really got going in the game once the changes had been made.

"John knew we had to do something in the second half, so he made a few changes and it's got us a point.

"There's a fighting quality there, so hopefully that will get us through the games later in the season, and get us where we want to be."
