Reasons to be Cheerful - Morecambe v Argyle
HADEN Tye looks at why we need to optimistic, as Argyle travel to Morecambe this Friday...
Argyle have only one once at The Globe Arena in their four visits – but that win was a special one. The Pilgrims found themselves 2-0 down after 50 minutes, but Ross Jenkins scored 20 minutes from time, and two Warren Feeney penalties, the final one with just four minutes to play, gave Argyle a 3-2 victory. Jenkins would only play for Argyle once more after that game before returning to Watford.
In March 2014, Argyle strolled to a 5-0 home victory against Morecombe. The goalscorers for the Pilgrims on that day were Durrell Berry, Curtis Nelson, Andres Gurrieri and a double from striker Lewis Alessandra. That game was just over two years ago – the only players that remain from the starting eleven are Nelson and Reuben Reid. First team coach Paul Wotton also started that day, and Tyler Harvey came on as a substitute.
On The March
On March 25 the date that the Pilgrims face Morecambe, it will be 16 years ago that Argyle won away from home 4-0 against Torquay United. Paul McGregor scored a hat trick and Craig Taylor also scored as Argyle cruised to victory at Plainmoor. McGregor ended up scoring 15 goals for the Pilgrims in that season, including two hat tricks; the one against Torquay and one at Home Park against Barnet in the previous November.
