Ryan's Goals

RYAN Edwards is enjoying the freedom to get into attacking positions and is hoping to add more goals to help the Pilgrims climb the Sky Bet League One table.

Edwards is currently joint top goal scorer in all competitions with two goals this season, along with Jake Jervis, Nathan Blissett and Alex Fletcher.

Ryan scored Argyle’s first equaliser in a 2-2 draw against Exeter City in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night, to add to his leveller at Southend in the league on August 19.

“I spoke to the manager about this,” said Ryan. “In my opinion, I should have had at least two more, maybe even three more. I think going back to Peterborough and the Blackpool game, I missed two great chances and against MK Dons, I had half a chance.

“I seem to be getting in the positions quite a lot and with the delivery that we have got here, I know that I have a great chance of scoring a good few more before the end of the season and that is what I am hoping to do.”

“There’s G [Graham Carey], there’s Gregg [Wylde], there’s also Jake [Jervis] and Foxy [David Fox] who have been putting them in this season that we’ve had chances from. Wherever they say they are going to put it, they usually do nine times out of ten, so it’s up to me to attack that area and if I don’t make use of it, it’s up to them to ask me questions because the delivery is usually spot on.

“I only got three last year and I have got two already. I was seen as a threat and my old manager used to make me sacrifice myself. [The opposition’s] best marker was usually marking me so he wanted me to take him out of the way, whereas now I’m in a position to go and attack the ball and it seems to be working so far.”

 ‘Eddy’ made the move to Home Park in the summer from Morecambe, where he made over 100 appearances for the Shrimps.

The 23 year old doesn’t see the standard to be too different to the one in Sky Bet League Two in League One, but believes it to be the style that is different.

“There’s definitely a little better quality up the top of the pitch,” said Ryan. “There’s more slick football played rather than the directness that you see more of in League Two, but it’s something we’re well capable of doing ourselves.”
