Two assists for influential midfielder helped defeat the Pilgrims
Tom Lowery provided two assists for Charlie Kirk and Owen Dale to score the goals we needed to defeat Plymouth Argyle at Gresty Road last night. The midfielder was back to his creative best, putting an exquisite pass into the path for Kirk for the opening goal and then sending Dale away for the decisive second goal before half-time.
The former Academy graduate has made 17 appearances this season and recently opened his own goalscoring account in the 4-2 win over Swindon Town.
Boss David Artell was full of praise for his influential midfielder: “I said to one of the Directors across about four seats after that first goal that he should go for a walk on the pitch after because there will be a six pence where Tom Lowery just put that pass.
“It was an exquisite pass, a top drawer ball and Kirk has drifted in and tucked in it. It was a good finish but I can’t tell you how good the pass was.
“Tom will run all day for you. He is as fit as a butchers’ dog and if a crisp packet blew across the pitch at Gresty Road he would go chasing that as well because he gives everything he has, absolutely everything.
“That is the kind of guy he is, he is a great lad and when it got tough physically in that second half, he had to dig in because we didn’t really have a midfield replacement on the bench.”
