Fox on the Run

HAVING picked up 16 points from the last 11 matches, Argyle midfielder David Fox believes the Pilgrims have what it takes to continue climbing the Sky Bet League One table, continuing with Oldham on Saturday.

Having had a poor start to the season, not helped by a rash of red cards and injuries, Argyle were struggling at the foot of the table. More recently they have managed to pull themselves back into the mix with a number of teams and Fox feels the club need to try and keep pushing on.

Fox said: “We have got some decent points and we are in and around it now, catching quite a few teams and that’s what we are looking to do. We had a terrible run of defeats on the bounce which really put us up against it. 

“To go through a run like that it is very difficult. We have managed to claw it back and get in amongst a few teams now, we need to kick on again and if we show the form we have done over the last eight or nine games I’m sure we will be up the table even further.” 

Foxy believes the squad’s confidence is a big factor in the upturn of results and the team need to use it going into a busy schedule. 

He said: “When you’re losing games confidence suffers and all of a sudden you start to do things you wouldn’t normally do, and you go into games with pessimism. Now the boys are going into games with confidence and we feel like we can get a result anywhere against any one.” 

David was keen to point out how much he and the squad respect the miles the Green Army will be putting in over the Christmas period with long trips to Blackpool and MK Dons. 

He said: “We appreciate the support everywhere we go. We know it’s a long one and the fixtures are horrific. The first thing we looked at when the fixtures came out was the Christmas period.

“The fans are going to have to do a lot of traveling, whoever does these things surely there could have been two away games closer to the club.

“The boys are alright - we travel okay and we are used to it. We travel on the bus, it’s the fans we worry about with expenses for them to have to fork out to watch us at Blackpool two days later after a game against MK Dons - it baffles me really.”
