Randell's Lincoln Reaction

Adam Randell was rather to the point when asked to describe his goal at Lincoln City.

“The ball came out to me and I hit it,” he said.

If Randell insists on being self-deprecating, we will do the praise for him, because the quality of the goal deserves it. Adam's sweet, low strike gave Argyle the lead in the first half at the LNER Stadium, although the Imps did equalise right on half-time, with the game finishing 1-1.

Randell scored one goal in his first 59 games as a Pilgrim. He has now got three in his last five. The goal was Adam’s third in consecutive away games, all of which have come from outside the penalty area.

“It was just outside the box,” said Randell, drawn to elaborate on his strike at Lincoln. “Scoring inside the box is a bit boring, isn’t it? I’m just glad I am getting into those positions where I can start affecting the game. I’m happy to be on the scoresheet.

“I’m more relaxed now. I know I can do it. I feel the confidence in myself, and the ability to hit them.”

Lincoln remain unbeaten at home this season, with a curious record of now having won and drawn the remaining eight. The game ebbed and flowed, with both sides having chances to potentially win the game, and Randell declared Argyle to be content enough to come away with something.

“We’re naturally disappointed not to go home with a win – that’s what we want to do every game – but we’re happy with the point, and it is something to build on.” He said.

“They made it hard for us. They pressed well. We knew it was going to be tough coming here. I guess we are happy to come away with a point instead of none.

“There were definitely times where we were under pressure. We had to defend, which we did well for large parts. We put some blocks in, and Coops made a couple of worldie saves – as per. We stuck with it, stuck together and managed to come away with a decent result.”

Argyle head to Burton Albion next Saturday, with a weekend to follow with no game. It is not until 2 December that the Greens return to PL2 in Sky Bet League One. When they do, one Argyle midfielder is hoping for something that has thus far proved elusive: an Adam Randell Home Park goal.

“I can’t wait to be back at home,” he said. “I don’t care how it goes in. As long as I can get one there, I’ll be happy.”
