Auld Acquaintances

SONNY Bradley will not treat this Saturday’s game differently to any other, as he prepares to faces his old club Crawley Town for the first time since moving to Argyle in the summer.

Bradley spent two seasons at Crawley, becoming the Red Devils’ captain, but left the Stadium in the summer to become a Pilgrim.

Sonny has fond memories of his time in West Sussex, but sentiment will not be distracting him from the task at hand. 

“It’ll be an interesting one. I was there for a couple of years and I have got to know a lot of people in the club,” said Bradley. 

“It’ll be good to see a few people again but all I’m thinking about is winning the game. 

“When we kick off on Saturday I’m not going to treat them any differently than I would treat anyone else.

“It’s always going to be interesting when you come up against players who you have recently played with, but for me personally, I don’t treat them any different to anyone else.”

“You go out like normal, perform well and get the three points.”

Crawley are currently five points off the play-offs positions under new boss Dermot Drummy, but the Argyle defender firmly believes that this is a game that the Pilgrims should get three points from, if they are on their game. 

“They’ve had a fairly good start to the season considering how many changes has been made at the club,” said Bradley.

“So they’ll be coming with a real positive vibe and I’m sure they’ll be looking for something from the game.

“I spent maybe a month with Dermot. He’ll definitely have them organised and playing football; he’s a good coach.

“Whether they can beat us or not, I don’t think so when we’re on it.”
