Talk about a confidence boost. Crystal Palace winger Jason Banton is only on loan to Plymouth Argyle from late January until March 2, 2013, but already he is making his presence felt. Barely a month into his loan period, and he has managed to secure Plymouth’s victory at Aldershot, scoring the two goals that secured the win and moved the Pilgrims up two notches in the League Two rankings. This has effectively put them further away from the relegation zone.
In an interview with BBC Radio Devon, Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan is highly upbeat at how all their hard work as a team had been paying off. He remarked on the excellent teamwork as his players put their skills together for winning plays. He is hopeful that this would only boost Banton’s confidence even more, as the 20-year-old definitely has more to offer.
Sheridan also thanked the club’s loyal and staunch supporters – all 900-strong of them – who went all the way to Hampshire to cheer Argyle. “They’re a great credit to the club,” he said, voicing his appreciation.
This is only Banton’s second outing with Argyle since the loan came through, and the two goals he scored against Aldershot were his first goals in English football.
