Plymouth Argyle will be targeting an immediate return to League One after they were relegated on the final day of last year’s campaign.
Following their relegation, the club appointed Ryan Lowe as their new manager, after the 40-year-old had successfully guided Bury to promotion to League One.
Lowe had to deal with a number of off-the-field issues in his time with Bury, which evidently haven’t gone away as the club are facing expulsion from the Football League on Friday.
Speaking exclusively to Football League World’s Chief Editor Sam Rourke, former Plymouth midfielder, David Norris, insisted that Lowe was the ideal replacement for Derek Adams who left the club in April.
“Yes, I think he is a good replacement for Derek Adams. He’s a young, hungry manager and did well the season before in difficult circumstances.”
Argyle currently sit sixth in the League Two table, and will be hoping they can build on some impressive showings in this year’s league campaign.
Norris admitted that he isn’t surprised to see Lowe’s side challenging for promotion, and labelled the manager as the perfect choice as Adams’ successor.
“I expected Plymouth to do well this year and it’s not surprised me to see them start strongly. Lowe is starting to prove himself, and was the perfect choice.”
The former Leeds and Plymouth man is confident that his former club can make an immediate return to League One with Lowe in the dugout this season.
“If he can get it right, then they’re going to have a real chance of promotion and I think they’ll be right up there.”
Plymouth are next in action on Saturday when they take on Walsall, who will be looking for their second win of the season in League Two.
