One Focus

ARGYLE playmaker Ruben Lamieras says the squad just need to do their bit on Saturday as Argyle look to make a dramatic final push for the play offs.

The Pilgrims need a six goal swing in beating Gillingham and hoping Charlton lose to Rochdale. But Ruben is focused on what Argyle have to do, and finishing the season on a high.

Ruben said: “For me we just need to go there and win regardless of the situation. We are disappointed from Tuesday but, we want to end the season on a high. That is the most important thing. We deserve it; the management and the staff deserve it and so do the fans, who have come to all the away games and all the home games making us a force to be reckoned with this season. They deserve a proper send off, so we go there and win the game.

"If we do our bit, we can only control what we control. If we go, there and get a good result and leave it up to Charlton. We just want to go there and win the game that’s our objective. I don’t see any reason why we can’t go there and get a positive result. We have just got a few injuries at the moment but anyone can come in and do what’s required. We just need to be nice and positive, start well and who knows what might happen."

Ruben has had to occasionally play the role of a centre-forward in the absence of Ryan Taylor, but feels that the unit of him, Joel Grant and Graham Carey have come close to clicking as a trio. 

“It is hard to come in and take the place of Tayls as he is a strong hold up player that allowed me and G to get on the ball a bit more," said Ruben.“I think with all good things it just needs a little bit of time. There is no reason why anyone can’t play up front: me, G or Joel. It was just about timing and playing with each other. Tayls has been unbelievable, but we work on that in training everyday. The front three have a license to try and score goals and win games. So, like I said it’s timing and gelling together.

"The support has been fantastic. Since I came to the club the fans have been really welcoming. It is a growing progress, when this gets all done it will be something really special. But, it has been really good and I have enjoyed it this season.”
