Clinical Edge

THE 3-1 victory at Scunthorpe United last weekend was a fine example of Argyle finding their clinical edge in Sky Bet League Two.

It has been an excellent couple of months for the Pilgrims, generating a run of form that has lifted us into the play-off positions and confidence is high for the visit to Carlisle United tomorrow.

Manager Ryan Lowe was pleased with the number of shots taken by his team at Scunthorpe and the ambition is to be even more clinical in the months to come.

“The shots and the expected goals are up and down because of where you’re shooting from and where you get your chances from,” said Ryan.

“We want to be a bit more clinical, like we were last weekend. If you can get that clinical edge and start scoring two or three goals, it’s going to make games a lot easier.

“It’s credit to the boys, credit to the staff and myself. It’s nice that we get recognised for the little runs you go on.

“We’ve always said that we’ll become a good team, then a very good team and hopefully an excellent team. We’re on the road to winning a lot more games than we’re losing.

“Winning your home games is very important but also winning away games. If you can pick up points away from home, it can lead you to somewhere special.

“When you’re winning games of football and we’re coming through a period of nine points out of 12, possibly could have been more, the lads are chomping at the bit to keep ticking the games off.

“We’ve got Saturday to Saturday for a couple of weeks and then the midweek games kick-in again."
