Jason Banton enjoying a more advanced role at Plymouth

JASON Banton is certainly enjoying life down at Plymouth Argyle, and helped them secure their second win in 72 hours on Tuesday night at Southend United.

And he nearly scored again for the Pilgrims at Roots Hall but a particular teammate's involvement cost him another goal.

"I was close to scoring again after Reuben Reid played me in, but I had a defender in front of me and I checked back onto my right foot, and I've placed it towards the bottom corner, but our right winger tapped it in on the line and it was given offside," Banton said.

"It was going in but the main thing was that we won and it was great to secure back-to-back wins at Southend."

On Saturday, Banton scored his fifth goal in nine appearances for John Sheridan's side, playing in an advanced role in the green and white.

"It was good to get another goal at Fleetwood Town, but the last three games I've been playing off the striker rather than on the wing," he said.

"I am used to playing out wide but I can also play up top.

"My aim now is to keep playing well and scoring goals, so hopefully I can carry that on and then look forward to being back at Palace for pre-season.

And he revealed he would like to keep Argyle up in front of their passionate fans.

"It would mean a lot to me to keep Plymouth up, especially with their history and you can just tell when you turn up on a Saturday to a home game you've got six or seven thousand supporting you," he said.

"And the club should not be where they are. You can tell that when Ian Holloway was manager here, it is definitely a big club."
