In The Hunt

Fox Comfortable With Being in the Chasing Pack

14 February 2018

ARGYLE midfielder David Fox says the team are going to see where their run of results can take them after notching up a fourth straight win thanks to a win over AFC Wimbledon.

Along with Graham Carey, Ryan Taylor and Ruben Lameiras, Fox made his way onto the score sheet to end the Dons unbeaten run at Home Park.

Games between the two teams usually result in a loss for the home side but not on this occasion, as Fox netted his first goal of the season with a brilliant strike. Argyle were 3-1 up at half-time, but survived a Wimbledon comeback and a missed penalty to run out 4-2 winners. 

Fox said: "I thought we started really well like we have done for the majority of the games recently apart from the first couple of minutes but I thought we played some really good stuff. 

"I thought their keeper made some unbelievable saves from Graham and we got the goal that we deserved. I thought we were very good first half; we got the lead for half time which I thought we deserved.

"Second half we weren't good enough; we weren't as free flowing as we were but it's difficult, it's difficult to maintain it especially against a team that are fighting for their lives and have got nothing to lose."

Since losing to - but at least matching - Wigan Athetic, Argyle have beaten struggling Oldham and promotion chasing Shrewsbury away from home, and high-flying Blackburn Rovers and now Wimbledon at home. 

"We've dealt with different teams in them four games as well," said Fox. "I thought against the good passing teams we've played well and then against the more physical direct teams like today we've coped well enough to win the game. We're full of confidence,

"It's clear to see at the minute but there's still a lot of hard work to go before now and the end of the season but we're just going to see where it can take us."
