Kelvin Mellow

28 August 2015

AS well as guarding against opposition wingers, Kelvin Mellor is keen to guard against complacency.

The Argyle full-back is pleased with the start the team has made to the season, but insists the team cannot rest on their laurels. Argyle have won three of their four Sky Bet League 2 games thus far, including their last two, and this week face Newport County at Home Park, with the Welsh having only taken a point in their games to date. 

"We're really happy with the start," said Kelvin. "We couldn't have asked for a better start really. 

"We're third in the league, we're happy where we are. We've done well both times away we've just got to kick on and keep pushing, keep listening to the manager and just keep going how we are.

"It's literally only four or five games into the season though, and there's hardly anything separating the top of the table to the bottom of the table. It's just onwards and upwards really.

"It's not going to be easy. We aren't walking into the game thinking we're going to push them over because it's not going to be like that."

The manager of which Kelvin speaks, Derek Adams, has brought many new faces into the club, as well as a new style - all of which is sitting well with Mellor. Graham Carey Carey and Jake Jervis, two of Adams' recruits, have each scored three goals so far, while Gregg Wylde has two, and they were among those referred to by Kelvin as having "got off to a flyer"

"We've glued together well," said Kelvin. "The manager's got us a good team spirit.  

"Obviously with Graham, he's on fire at the minute and Jake's scoring goals - that's the main thing. Gregg's played his part really so I think the new signings have done well.

"[The manager] is really positive and he's motivational. Training's good, he's definitely got the players behind him and the fans as well, they like him."

Newport will likely boast Zak Ansah in their line-up, having signed the forward on loan from Charlton this month. Zak was a team-mate of Mellor's as recently as 12 weeks ago, when they lined up together in Argyle's play-off semi-final side. 

"It'll be good to see him again," said Kelvin. "Hopefully he doesn't score!"
