ARGYLE defender Callum McFadzean says he and his team-mates are keen to put back-to-back defeats behind them and beat Grimsby in Sky Bet League Two at Home Park on Saturday.
The two defeats have come on Derby day against Exeter City at St James Park and then we fell to a late goal against a young Chelsea side in the Leasing.com Trophy in the last week, but Callum is relishing the challenge of a hectic fixture schedule.
He said: “It is a good thing, depending on results, we have had two poor results, so it’s good in that sense [that we have a lot of games coming up] because we can put it right. I know it’s only a matter of time before we do put it right. When you go in with confidence, you want the next game to come so you can put it right.”
The wing-back pointed out that there is still lots of football to be played in the league and the Pilgrims are not far off where they would like to be in a situation not too dissimilar to Bury’s start under current Argyle manager Ryan Lowe last year.
“There are still a lot of games to play,” said Fadz.“Last season with Bury, we went through a stage where there were some games we should have won. It’s all about putting a run of games together. If you put a good amount of games together unbeaten then you will be right up there. We are there now, really. We just need to put a set of good results together and we’ll be right back in there.”
The 25 year-old feels Michael Jolley’s Grimsby side will be a different proposition to the one he faced as a Shaker last season, but the Green Army can be a factor in helping the boys to an important three points.
“From last season, I think they [Grimsby] are going to be a better outfit than last season,” said Fadz. “We will prepare like always, but it is down to ourselves because we know, if we are on our game, we can cause anyone problems.
”It helps with the fans behind us because the Green Army singing like they do, it’s a massive help. Teams will be coming here thinking ‘wow, we are in for a tough day here’.”
