ARGYLE’S latest loan signing, Drew Talbot, believes that one good result will reignite the Pilgrims’ faltering play-off ambitions.Chesterfield utility man Drew made his debut in Argyle’s 3-2 Sky Bet League 2 defeat at Hartlepool, a result which means the Pilgrims have now not won for seven matches.
However, Drew, 28, said: “Even though the results have been disappointing, if you string a run of three or four good results together, you can go on a good run. I have been in this situation before, so I know how it works. Fingers crossed we can do that.
“If you get two or three results, it gets the confidence up. I remember speaking to a couple of lads who have played against Plymouth who said they were the best footballing team in the league, so that was a plus for me.
“It’s never easy when you are on a downward spiral a little bit, but there will be a spark somewhere which will re-ignite it. Hopefully, that can be next Saturday.”
Drew agreed a three-month loan on the day before the match and links up again with manager John Sheridan, who signed him for Chesterfield.
“I played under him for two-three years,” he said. “I know how he works; I know what he demands; and we had some successful times together. That was one of my reasons for coming here.”
Drew’s Argyle debut saw him play for 68 minutes before he was substituted and, result apart, he enjoyed his induction to Pilgrimhood.
“Take the sloppy goals out and I think we played quite well,” he said. “I think we were in the ascendency more than [Hartlepool], but they were more clinical than us today and that is something we have got to deal with.
“I feel part of the team already, which is nice because it has been such a whirlwind 24 hours and they have made me feel great. Hopefully, once I get training with them, I’ll get used to the way they play on the field.
“That’s a major thing. I played today but there were certain situations in the game that you don’t really know how players play. I’ve got three months at it and hopefully we can pick it up.”
