ARGYLE recorded another impressive win on the road against a top side in Sky Bet League Two to cap a merry Christmas for the Green Army.
Zak Rudden’s assured finish from a George Cooper cross toward the end of the first period at Cheltenham Town was enough to secure all three points at a Cheltenham Town side riding high alongside the Pilgrims in the race for promotion.
Argyle manager Ryan Lowe was particularly pleased with the desire to win and strong minds in the closing stages to complete a victory that sits in comparison with the triumphant returns from Forest Green Rovers recently, and Crewe on the opening day of the season.
“It was very good, the lads were fantastic, showed application and a hunger to win,” said Ryan. “That’s what my team builds, a winning mentality.
“We’ve been to Forest Green, we’ve been to Crewe, who are up there, and we’re doing well against the top teams. We want to continue that and fantastic to come to place like this and take a well-earned three points.
“They [Cheltenham] are a good team, they’re well organised and we knew it would be a tight game. We put crosses into the box, George played a great deep cross for Zak to be in the right place at the right time to put it in the net.
“Overall, I’m even more happy with the last ten minutes because they showed that resolve not to be beaten.”
