Heading in the Right Direction

17 January 2016

ARGYLE winger Gregg Wylde wants to reach double figures this season and the Scotsman is already halfway there after scoring his fifth Pilgrims' goal in Saturday's 3-1 victory against Stevenage.

"It's not bad," Gregg said, who has now scored in successive Sky Bet League 2 games, having netted the consolation in Tuesday's 2-1 home defeat by Northampton.

"I have said before that I wanted to score more goals and now I am doing it. Hopefully I can do the same next week away at Bristol [Rovers]."

Gregg has scored two headers this season, with his second of the campaign re-establishing Argyle's lead over Boro after Pilgrim Carl McHugh and Charlie Lee had swapped early goals.

"Brew [coach Craig Brewster] just said to try and get in on the back post," said Gregg, who stands just 5ft 8in tall. "Since then, I have scored two headers and the boys have been slaughtering me for it. It's good to get on the scoresheet and hopefully I can get to double-figures by the end of the season."

Gregg was assisted by Jake Jervis for his 17th-minute strike, with the two wide men having helped each other to several of the Pilgrims' 42 league goals this season.

"I think I have set up more goals for him then he has for me," said Gregg. "He's set up two and I have set up more than two for him; it's a good partnership for both of us."

Gregg's goal was Argyle's 50th goal of the season in all competitions, with 11 different players having chipped in for the Pilgrims.

"The goals have been shared around the team," he said. "It would be good to get the centre-halves in that with set-pieces, as well. We are all chipping in with goals - it is not one man, like Reuben with his goals last season."

Gregg might have been helped towards his double-figure aim if he had been awarded the second goal in Argyle's 2-0 win away to Carlisle, when there was confusion over who had actually scored. However, this week, Ryan Brunt was officially given the goal.

"I'm still trying to claim the goal from Brunty," he joked.
