Joel's Goals

JOEL Grant is hungry for more goals as he looks to help Argyle continue the upturn in results.

Grant has settled well in the green side of Devon having signed from Exeter in the Summer. The flying winger has scored twice in his 18 appearances, and while he is happy to be playing a part, he expressed a desire to chip with more goals. 

Joel said: “As a professional you want to play and that’s something I’m working really hard on. As a player I am my own biggest critic, and being at the bottom of the table can sometimes make you feel sometimes a certain way. As if you’re in the team, are you doing enough?

“There’s a number of things I can work on. At the moment I personally want to affect us going forward more. In terms of goals we have been free flowing with the goals. 

“If you were to watch training day in and day out you would definitely say we are not quite getting it right. As when you see training you would expect us to score a few more on the match day.

“Considering the ability we have in the squad I feel we have been underachieving there. So personally if I can help that would be good. It’s about showing the manager, and getting him to believe in you; that comes from all around.” 

Grant remains extremely positive about the rest of the season and has faith in himself and the rest of the squad in the battle to move out of the drop zone. 

“I honestly believe we are going to do really well in the second half of the season,” he said. “I have been a professional a long time and I have been a part of some very successful teams and I’ve also been in some unsuccessful teams. 

“My view of this club is that it’s a club with a winning mentality and we have a manager who has been successful and continues every day to work hard. The players continue to work really hard. One thing you would often see when a team is not doing very well is the spirit can be really down. But we have enough players in the squad pulling in the right direction to be successful.”
