Victory Spells Relief for Plymouth Argyle
7:00am 20th March 2013
A desperately needed win has lifted Plymouth Argyle away from the drop zone.
They beat Southend two-nil on Tuesday night.
It is proof you should never listen to those who say ‘never go back’.
Paul Wotton and Reuben Reid, two men who came through the ranks at Argyle and have since returned to help out their alma mater in troubled times, scored goals which gave Argyle back-to-back wins for the first time since mid October.
Wotton came off the substitutes’ bench to open the scoring for the second successive game, again from the penalty spot, after Joe Bryan had been upended by Biel Mohsni.
The early second-half strike was franked by Reid’s first ever Argyle goal 15 minutes from the end. The beauty of it – and its importance, given the night’s other results – was almost worth the 23-game wait.
He said: "We definitely need that breathing space because Southend are a strong side. In any football game you need that two goal cushion because anything could happen really."7:00am 20th March 2013
