The High Life
SONNY Bradley is having the time of his life.
Not only is the central defender, in his first season at Home Park, having an acclaimed campaign so far, but he is enjoying being at the right end of the Sky Bet League Two, challenging for honours.
Argyle lie second in the table, behind Doncaster Rovers on goal difference, and are seven points clear of those outside of the top three.
“I’ve never been part of anything like this before,” said Sonny.
“It’s been a very good half of the season. We’ve put in some very good performances and I think we deserve to be where we are in the league now.
“I’m fully aware of what happened last season.
“We’ve done half a job – but you don’t get paid for half a job.
“It’s only half a job and we won’t be happy until we get to May and we are promoted.
“On a personal level, I think I’ve performed well, I’ve looked after myself and I’ve contributed well so far in what is a successful Plymouth team.
“I’m aware that our standards can’t drop. We’ve got to keep working harder.
“We don’t want to finish in the play-offs. We don’t want to finish third. We don’t want to finish second.
“We want to win this league and we will do everything in our power to do that.”
Sonny says that the Argyle squad trains harder than any other club that he has played for before and believes that this will aid in not only getting through the busy Christmas period, but will show the Pilgrims to be a team ready to challenge for the title this season.
The 25-year-old said: “We’ve got a very fit squad and we train very hard. We train harder than anywhere that I have been before.
“With the 120 minutes against Newport on a tough pitch, it was always going to be tough on our legs but against Wycombe I think that has been the sharpest that we have been in a while.
“I think that is testament to the way that we train and our fitness level.
“We did concede some sloppy goals against Wycombe but we did play well. I think we should concentrate on the positives and take them into the next game.
“If we perform to that level and cut out a few mistakes then we have got a team who is really going to challenge for the title this season.”
