Better Than Before

ARGYLE manager Ryan Lowe has a very simple New Year wish for his Pilgrims: be better than before.

After successive away wins at Scunthorpe and Carlisle, that desire is already coming to fruition and the Greens are riding the crest of a wave that has taken to the play-off positions in Sky Bet League Two.

Two goals from Luke Jephcott and a Ryan Hardie strike took Argyle to a 3-0 victory at Carlisle and particularly satisfying for supporters to win at a venue that has not been kind to the Pilgrims in the past.

“We said on New Year’s Day that we wanted to have a better 2020,” said manager Ryan Lowe. “We want to make 2020 a better year for all of us, generate more points and get to where we want to be.

“It is pleasing but still a long way to go, we’re a work in progress, as I’ll keep saying, but to come away to Carlisle and win 3-0 is very pleasing.

“Football will have ups and downs, and we’re on a bit of crest of the wave at the moment, long may that continue. All the stuff that has happened before our era, we can’t control, but it’s nice for the fans when they say ‘we haven’t won here for this long and so on’.

“All we worry about is what we have to do on the day. We’ve come away to Carlisle, scored three goals and it could have been more.”
