eSports Preview: On A Roll
HAVING waited until the sixth time of asking to secure their first VPG League One South win, Argyle eSports are beginning to make it quite a habit.
On Monday night, the Greens completely dominated the previously unbeaten Viking eSports to win 2-0, securing their third win in their last four outings.
“It’s the best we’ve played all season, and we fully deserved the win,” said manager Ben Taylor. “Like I’ve been saying all season, we can beat anyone. The last two results show that.”
“I knew we had it in us, and we’ve been knocking on the door a lot lately. I think last night showed how much work we’ve been putting in and that we’re trying. A big win like this has been coming.”
Despite their dominant display, the Pilgrims were unable to break the deadlock until deep into the second-half - but they remained patient to secure a tremendous result.
Taylor said: “We said during the game, we had been in that position before. We knew that, even though they weren’t threatening, we could have been in a position where it didn’t go our way, and heads could go. We continued to play the right way and got the goals to win the game.”
It has been quite a turnaround for the Greens, who were still searching for their first competitive victory only a week ago. It should not come as a surprise to anyone that, according to Taylor, the mood in the camp is significantly improved now the team is on a roll.
“It’s much better. We are all made up with the win last night, and hopefully we can continue to just keep enjoying it,” said Taylor. ““We can’t get complacent; we just need to keep cracking at it and play the right way.”
The Pilgrims are back in action again on Tuesday night, facing another in-form opponent in BDGR eSports, who currently sit fourth in League One South.
“Tonight, we play another top team, but we know we have what it takes and hopefully we can get another win and push on.”
“I don’t know them, haven’t played them before, but I know they’ve started the season well. However, we know what we are capable of and we’ll go into it looking for no less than three points.”
