Let Festivities Commence

ARGYLE midfielder David Fox is relishing the Christmas period and the feasts of football it can bring.

Argyle have four matches in the space of ten days in a busy period that could prove to be a vital time in their bid to move up the Sky Bet League One table. 

Fox knows that the period will be demanding for him, and the other players, but says he cannot wait to get started. 

“It’s quite testing as there are a lot of games,” he said, “and being down here there is a lot of travelling as well. You want to play the game but we wont be training as much. It will be ticking over and then playing the games and making sure you are ready. 

“It’s a good period; I like the Christmas period because there are a lot of games and you normally get decent crowds. It’s enjoyable; there is a lot of games, but that’s why you are here. You want to play games and the lads are looking forward to it. 

“You put a decent little run together over Christmas and you can climb up the table. Things can change quickly when you’ve got four games in ten days.” 

Fox, 34, has experienced a few footballing Christmases and knows exactly how to recover the right way to make sure he plays a key part for Argyle. 

“When you get older you know what you need to do,” he said. “You’ve got all your recovery protein shakes, your ice baths and your stretching. There’s loads of things that you pick up over the years and the club will make sure that we are right. 

“There wont be any running sessions in between games, it will be just ticking over and getting the tactics right and making sure we are fresh going into the games.’’
