Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe has insisted that his team will not take their opponents lightly, despite facing bottom of the table Stevenage tomorrow.
“We won’t look further than Stevenage, Graham Westley will make them a different animal so we won’t take anything for granted.”
“Graham Westley is his own manager with his own style. I respect him for that, he’s been there and proven it. He’s different, and we have to expect the unexpected.”
“Stevenage will be resolute, they’ve got a few older pros in there, we will treat them with respect. I’m not thinking about Swindon. We always take it game by game. Our main focus is on Stevenage, no question.”
Lowe also spoke about the loans of Josh Grant and Zak Rudden which both end in January, but the Argyle manager was keen to keep close-lipped on the matter.
“We are on with things with both of them. We will keep that in house at the moment, we will give the news when we need to. We have been discussing with Rangers and with Chelsea for the past month. When there is news to be told, we will tell you.”
Before Sunday’s game against Stevenage, Lowe gave an update on injuries to the Argyle squad, including positive news about wing-back Callum McFadzean.
“Callum McFadzean has had some good news, we’ll have him back by the end of January and we thought we were going to lose him for at least three months. He will be grass-based within the next week and we should hopefully have him back for the last week in January.”
Meanwhile, Lowe also explained why Argyle striker Ryan Taylor wasn’t in the squad for the 0-1 win over Cheltenham on Boxing Day.
“Ryan is only on crutches as a precaution, he will be back with us next week. We caught it in time. If he had carried on, he would have been out for probably four to six weeks. He would have broken his metatarsal, but he has just got some sort of inflammation around it.”
