Sass-Davies: "Hopefully We Can Go To Plymouth And Stop Their Good Run"

28 September 2021

Wales Under-21 defender wants to go to Home Park and stop Pilgrims from potentially going top of League One after fantastic start to the new season.

Billy Sass-Davies believes that Chris Porter’s late equaliser from the penalty spot at Rotherham at the weekend has only injected some belief and confidence into the Alex dressing room.

Porter, 37, held his nerve to slot home an injury-time penalty to seal a hard earned point against a Rotherham side that were in the Championship last season.

The club’s Wales Under-21 International returned to the starting line-up on Saturday as David Artell elected to go with his wing-back system once again. If the young defender retains his place at Home Park tonight remains to be seen, but he says that the morale has lifted after putting the home defeat by Morecambe quickly behind them.

Sass-Davies told the club’s official website: “It was a great point at Rotherham. It’s a tough place to go. We battled for the whole game, stayed in the game and Ports was brilliant at the end (with the penalty).

“If we ever wanted to have a penalty in that situation it was Ports. He has got a terrific record and I thought when he came on he was brilliant for us. He trains well every day and he is a top professional.

“He is a role model to us all. He trains hard all the time and he is always in the gym and in training he is always tough to play against. He is always on at us to improve.

“It showed that we can go to places like Rotherham and get something. They are a top team, so to remain in the game and get something has given us a massive confidence boost.

“I was made up to learn on Friday that I was starting and hopefully I have done enough to stay in and get a run of games now.

Billy added: “We have prepared for Plymouth like any other game and although they have started well and are a good team, we want to go down there and get the three points. Hopefully we can go there and stop their run of form.”
