Joel Grant: Plymouth Argyle forward repaying manager's faith in him


Plymouth Argyle forward Joel Grant says he is working hard to show he is worthy of his regular place in the side.Grant has started 16 of Argyle’s 20 league games following his summer move from Devon rivals Exeter City.The 30-year-old was used more as a substitute for City last season as they reached the League Two play-off final.

“Credit to the manager, he’s put his faith in me and it’s something I’m working hard to prove to him that I deserve a place,” he told BBC Devon.Grant, who has won 14 caps for Jamaica, feels he is getting better in his first campaign in the third tier since he left Yeovil Town in the summer of 2015.”I believe I’m starting to improve, I know my role in the team a bit better than when I first came,” he added.”It’s always difficult when you come to a new club because you are applying different tactics from the manager or different game plans.”I’m impressed with how I’ve settled in now, I’m starting to find my feet and feeling a lot more confident.”Argyle are still bottom of League One, but are just three points away from leaving the relegation zone, and he feels Argyle will not stay there much longer.”They say the table doesn’t lie, so there’s a reason why we’re there,” Grant said.”But it’s reasons we can change and I think we are slowly changing. We’re working very hard day in, day out, and we’ll have a much better second half of the season.”
