Plymouth Argyle defender Guy Branston 'excited' about clash against Aldershot
PLYMOUTH Argyle's relegation 'six-pointer' away to Aldershot Town tomorrow holds no fears for centre-back Guy Branston.
In fact, Branston is excited about the challenge he and his team-mates will encounter at the Recreation Ground, rather than anxious about it.
Branston always exudes positivity and it has been no different before this crunch clash.
Argyle are 22nd in the League Two table, outside the relegation zone on goal difference, while Aldershot are one position and a point above them. So the outcome tomorrow is important for both teams.

Branston started the season at Aldershot but played only five times for them and signed for Argyle on January 11.
He has started the last three matches for the Pilgrims, which have all been at Home Park, and they have been unbeaten in those games.
The first was a 2-1 victory over Morecambe but the last two have been 0-0 draws against Accrington Stanley and Dagenham and Redbridge.
The pressure is on Argyle tomorrow, but 34-year-old Branston is looking forward to the fixture.
He told Herald Sport: "It's exciting. As a new player coming into the team you want to play in exciting games.
"Going to Aldershot is going to be exciting for us and exciting for the fans. We need the points and they need the points.
"We can't keep taking a point. We have got to get wins as well because we need to start moving away (from the bottom of the table) now."
Argyle are expected to have around 1,000 supporters at the Recreation Ground tomorrow, with the Green Army fully aware of the importance of the match and wanting to cheer their team on.
Two Travel Club coaches are making the trip to Hampshire, as well as a Green Taverners one, and many other vehicles.
Branston said: "It's unbelievable. As a footballer, you want to turn around and see your gang. That's what you want.
"When you turn around and look at 1,000 fans on an away trip you are thinking 'come on, let's have this'. It still gives me tingles up my spine.
"The A303 will be a vibrant place on Saturday. Sparkford services are going to be busy, as are all the little villages along the way.
"These away matches are great for the economy."
