The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

PAUL-ARNOLD GARITA’S ar­rival from Bris­tol City on loan is al­ready look­ing a shrewd cap­ture as Ply­mouth chase pro­mo­tion af­ter last sea­son’s play-off heartache.

The 21-year-old striker ripped Ex­eter to shreds in the first half with his raw pace and power, mak­ing one goal and scored one in the 104th Devon derby be­tween the sides.

Ply­mouth showed how res­o­lute they are at the back and, with Garita and Gra­ham Carey pro­vid­ing the am­mu­ni­tion, it is no sur­prise they are the early pace­set­ters in League Two. This game was won in the first half as Ply­mouth came rac­ing out of the traps and Ex­eter’s makeshift back-line could not cope.

The game evened out af­ter the break but the dam­age was done and Derek Adams’ re­built squad are prov­ing a tough nut to crack right now.

In­jury-hit Ex­eter, on the other hand, are strug­gling at the wrong end of the ta­ble but they should have enough in their squad to ease away from trou­ble.
