Matt the Green

ARGYLE striker Jamille Matt is the latest darling of the Green Army and he is backing the Pilgrims’ fantastic fans to roar them to Wembley.

The Argyle support was out in force at a vibrant Fratton Park as the Greens’ first leg of the Sky Bet League 2 play-off semi-final against Portsmouth ended 2-2, with a place in the final hinging on the result of Sunday’s Home Park second leg.

Jamille, who scored both the Argyle goals to take his tally to seven goals in ten starts since joining on loan from Fleetwood Town, said: “I said to [team-mate] Jake [Jervis], before the game, when we came out, ‘That’s the atmosphere you want to play in’. 

“If you can’t play in that atmosphere, then you shouldn’t be playing football. We were all looking forward to the game; we enjoyed the game; it was a great, great atmosphere.

“I can’t put into words how much I enjoy playing in front of these fans. Since I have come here, they have made me feel so welcome, with the lads. 

“Some of the scenes, some of the atmospheres, since I have been here have been second to none. They travel well and they come to support us at Home Park – we’ll see them do it again one more time and I’m sure we’ll get over the line.”
