Plymouth Argyle looking to extend winning run...

PLYMOUTH Argyle will be looking to make it five wins in a row when they head to Oxford United on Saturday (kick-off 3.00pm).

Tuesday’s 4-2 victory over AFC Wimbledon has thrust Derek Adams’ side into eighth place in the League One table and now they face an Oxford side still without a permanent manager following the departure of Pep Clotet last month.

One player who is particularly looking forward to the game is Argyle striker, Ryan Taylor, who returns to the club where he made 58 appearances during an 18-month spell prior to his arrival at Home Park at the turn of 2017.

“Oxford have had a few bad results, but they are going to be hungry to get on the points trail and that’s something we are going to try and stop,” he admitted to pafc.co.uk. “We are very confident at the minute so, we will be looking to steal another three points.

“It’s going to be massive. I think every game is tough in this league as well. We played them earlier in the season and they were much better than us. But we will be looking to do a job on them come Saturday and we are ready to do that.

“It will be nice to go back to the stadium where I spent 18 months. It was fond memories; we got promoted from League Two into League One. So, it’s always nice to get a promotion, but I’m at a massive club now and I can’t wait to go there and hopefully get three points.

“I better score; I’m hoping so, I scored against Rotherham last time around so hopefully more of the same against Oxford.”
