Fortune Favours the Brave

ARGYLE’S win at Rochdale last weekend came courtesy of a bizarre own goal, when home goalkeeper Joh Lillis allowed a back-pass to roll under his boots.

It was a strange way to win a tight game but very welcome for the Pilgrims, who have suffered their own fair share of bad luck over the first half of the season.

In a division as tight as Sky Bet League One this year, Argyle manager Derek Adams is happy to take any good fortune coming our way and will be hoping for more when Accrington Stanley visit on Saturday.

“A number of times this season we’ve not had the good fortune but we had that [at Rochdale],” said Derek. “There were a number of times we could have gone ahead in the match and didn’t, but then got ahead in the second half.

“We’re delighted to get the three points because that’s what matters. It’s very important we get a consistent run of wins and we’ve got the opportunity to do that over the next four games.

“It [the league] is even tighter than it was last season and it shows there is not too much difference between the teams. The first goal is important and we’ve shown we can do well if we get that.”
