LEAGUE ONE Argyle ace Jephcott secures narrow win

ryan lowePlymouth Argyle boss Ryan Lowe was delighted with his side as they got back to winning ways with a 1-0 home win over mid-table League One rivals Gillingham.

Wales Under 21 striker Luke Jephcott swept home the 33rd minute winner finishing off Argyle’s best move of the game, from their own box.

Jephcott has now scored 14 goals, and five in Argyle’s last five games.

Argyle boss Ryan Lowe said: “A clean sheet, three points and a really good goal – I’ve got to be happy haven’t I?”

“We were dominant more or less all the game really. They had a spell where we had to show a bit of gut and resilience but we knew what was coming.

“We have made no apologies to the lads in training this week for how we have trained and how we have had to deal with their long ball game and everything that comes with it.

“That’s the way Steve Evans’ team plays. They are the front foot, full of desire. They are hungry, winners.

“We scored a great goal so I am pleased with the goal, the performance but ultimately with three points.

“We have a young team out there. I don’t know the average age but it’s young. Collectively we will make small mistakes, errors but we had 17 shots on their goal – and some blocked and what have you. There weren’t many on target but the one that counted was the one that went in and that was a great finish by Luke.

“It’s nice now having a couple of weeks off from the league. We can look forward to going to Huddersfield in the FA Cup now next week off the back of a win.”

The win lifted Argyle to 15th level on 26 points with 14th placed Gillingham, whose boss Steve Evans said: “We deserved to win the game, let alone take a point. We will get on with it and we wish Ryan Lowe every success at Plymouth. He is a good young manager and we have a good relationship.  

“They are a great club and we wish them well. But we need to concentrate on ourselves."
