In the Habit
ALL games come the same to Argyle at the moment and they are enjoying each and every one of them.
The Sky Bet League Two leaders eased into the second round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 2-1 win at Mansfield.
Midfielder David Fox scored Argyle’s winning goal 10 minutes from time, after team-mate Jordan Slew’s 14th-minute opener had been cancelled out by ex-Pilgrim Ashley Hemmings just before the hour.
“You can’t get tired of winning.,” said Foxy. “You have got to keep going. Any competition you are in, you want to win because it builds and builds and builds.
“We’re going on to a pitch feeling we’re tough to beat. Obviously there will be times when that’s not the case but we go into every game with confidence and momentum and, it doesn’t matter what competition we are in, we are trying to win.
“The manager played the same team as last week. He’s keeping momentum. It’s great, from a confidence point of view, that he’s thrown us all out there again, and he expects results. At the minute, that’s what we are doing.
“We’ve got a never-say-die attitude. We all stuck in. After the second goal, [Mansfield] chucked everything at us but we stuck together; we held firm; we were solid; and we had each other’s backs. That can get you a long way.
“It’s a good feeling after games and we have got to try to make that continue.
“It does nobody any harm at all, being in this competition. We have got lots of players eager to play. We are not even past Christmas yet, everyone’s fit, everyone wants to play, so we want to be in every competition.”
Next up for Derek Adams’ side is a midweek visit to Premier League Swansea City in the Checkatrade Trophy.
“We want get through on Tuesday night, as well,” said Foxy. “I am sure there will be lads that get a game in that but we know that, whoever plays, wants to win that game.
“We want to be in the next round of that cup, as well, because confidence breeds results and that’s what we’ve got. We want to try to hold on to it as long as we can.”
