David Artell has told the club’s official website that he is not surprised that Ryan Lowe and his Plymouth Argyle side have come good at a crucial part of the season. The Pilgrims took a bit of time to adjust to League Two following their relegation last season but given time, Lowe has implemented his own ideas, integrated his own players and style and they are now reaping the rewards.
Plymouth are currently fourth in League Two and four points adrift with a game in hand against Macclesfield Town still be played. It is all very tight at the top of the table and Plymouth are on an impressive run of just two defeats in their past 11 matches. They have won eight of those games to propel themselves up the table.
Crewe are on a fine run of form also having remained unbeaten in the last seven games.
It is all geared up to be a real classic at Home Park.
David Artell told the club’s official website: “It should be a good game and we will have to see how it pans out. We have to make sure we are on the right side of the result.
“I am not surprised that Plymouth are up there with us, especially with the resources and players they have at their disposal. They have a terrific fan base and get good crowds.
“They are a big club for the league and have a good team.
“Ryan (Lowe) has done a good job. He has a good budget but that doesn’t necessary guarantee success. It is not easy with money because with that comes more expectation.
“We are two good teams and these are the games you want to be involved with.”
