Proof Positive

ARGYLE manager Derek Adams has no time for negativity around the club, after a 2-1 against Crawley Took them top of the table.

Goals from Reuben Reid and Hiram Boateng, either side of a Roarie Deacon effort, saw the Greens rise to the pinnacle of the Sky Bet League 2 table. 

With the Pilgrims’ excellent start to the campaign showing no signs of letting up, Adams has made it perfectly clear that he wants his positive outlook to be replicated in and around Home Park. 

“There’s not a downer from the day,” said Derek. “It’s all positive: we’ve won 2-1. 

“We’re a positive football club – we talk in a positive manner. Negativity is something that we don’t talk about. That’s when people around about you are not favourable, and we only talk about positives. 

“I’m happy with everybody – the whole football club. The players that have come in, the players that were already here, they’ve all been excellent, and we’re working every day to improve ourselves. 

“I’ve driven a football club from the second division to the Premier League. I’ve been to Scottish Cup finals, finished fifth and seventh in the top flight. 

"I’ve not got there without being positive, and negative people can get lost!”
