DREW Talbot has become the latest Pilgrim to be bowled over by the Green Army.
The midfielder, who starred in Argyle’s 0-0 Sky Bet League 2 draw at Oxford on Saturday, paid tribute to the near 1,300-strong contingent of visiting supporters at the Kassam Stadium.
“It’s awesome,” he said. “Obviously I’ve never been involved with Plymouth, so seeing the fans travel as they do…It’s a long way; it took us four-and-a-half hours to get here. They’ve spent their money and travel in groups and it gives us a boost to see them at the end of the game. It’s nice, and we’re thankful for that.”
Argyle go again at Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday in search of a result that will keep their play-off ambitions bubbling.
“It’s going to be tough – a Tuesday night down there,” said Drew. “We know what it’s like down at Dagenham; it’s always a tough game, no matter when you play them.
“But we’re going to go there full of confidence, knowing we’ve not lost in two now. Fingers crossed we can go and give a good account of ourselves and come away with the points.”
And, of course, he knows the Green Army will be there in force and voice.
“They travel brilliantly on a Tuesday, so fair play – some of them have probably got work the morning after that!” he said.
“As long as they stick with us, we will try our best, so fingers crossed we can reward them at the end of the season.”
