Right Type of Goal
BYRON Moore’s finish against Oldham is exactly the type of goal Argyle Manager Ryan Lowe wants his players to be scoring.
Similar to Ryan Taylor’s opener in the recent win against Walsall, the ball was worked well on the left hand-side before a Callum McFadzean cross was stroked home by an Argyle centre forward.
Ultimately, Moore’s strike was not enough earn all three points, as Oldham equalised to secure a 2-2 draw after Scott Wootton had earlier levelled for Argyle in the first half.
“I said to the lads that the goals we are going to score are going to be those type of goals,” said the gaffer.
“We [Bury] scored 103 of them last season. Whether we score 103 this season is yet to be seen, but I certainly want us trying to score those sorts of goals and I’m going to make sure we get bodies in the box for them.”
The boss is more than happy with the output from his left hand-side, with Danny Mayor and Callum McFadzean having a large say in the goals the Greens have scored this season, but Lowe wants more from whoever plays on the right.
“We’ve got to execute in those areas when get down the sides. With Danny and Fadz, it’s like clockwork for them two, we need to start doing it down the other side.”
All of the players are well aware of the type of goals the gaffer wants them scoring, especially the strikers, as today’s goal scorer Byron Moore admitted, “I haven’t played striker for a while, I know what the gaffer wants from his strikers,” he said. “It’s good to get into the box and tap them in.”
