Sonny Disposition

AMID all the Green Army’s soul-searching after Argyle suffered successive home defeats to Grimsby Town and Barnet...

...the Pilgrims’ still excellent start to the season seems to have become sidelined.

Derek Adams’ side travels to Sky Bet League Two’s bottom side Morecambe on Saturday ahead of the rest of the division by three points after taking a handsome 38 points from their opening 18 matches.

That will do for Argyle centre-back Sonny Bradley.

“We’ve been the best team in the division and I think that, just looking at the table, there’s no need to panic,” he said. “It’s two defeats; we’ll take it on the chin. We’ve just got to recognise our mistakes, and build on it and make it right. 

“Anyone who was at the Barnet game would’ve seen how much we dominated the ball, how much we dominated possession. Technically, I thought we were a lot better than them.

“There’s nothing wrong with looking back at it and recognising where you could’ve been better but, in the long run, we know we can defend our box, we can keep clean sheets – we’ve proved that already. So we’ll take the confidence out of that and take it into the next game.  

“There are 23 teams who would take our position all day long, so we’re happy to be where we’re at. I think we could’ve had more points but that’s not the way it’s gone – we’ve got 38 and we’re happy with that. 

“If we can get anywhere near 50 before Christmas, then we’ll be even happier, and if we can repeat that next year then, come the end of the season, we’ll hopefully be celebrating promotion.”
