Young is sure Plymouth Argyle have right quality

Plymouth Argyle are "on a high" going into the Devon derby against Exeter City at St James' Park on Saturday, midfielder Luke Young has declared.

Young admitted that the 2-0 npower League Two victory over York City at Home Park last weekend had been a timely one for the Pilgrims.

Not only did it halt a run of nine games without a win in all competitions, it raised spirits at the club in advance of the Exeter clash.

Young, who returned from a shoulder injury to play against York, said: "We can go to Exeter, our local rivals, on a high and on the back of a good performance."

Exeter will start the Devon derby as favourites, with them sitting in seventh position in League Two while Argyle are a lowly 20th.

The Grecians have won four and drawn one of their last six games, and they also boast one of the most prolific scorers in the division in 15-goal Jamie Cureton.

All the statistics point to a home win for Exeter against on Saturday, but Young does not buy into that. He said: "Anything can happen on derby day. I think everybody knows that. It's just a case of going out there and giving it your all. I think we've got the quality to go to Exeter and get a result."

On-loan Bournemouth midfielder Mark Molesley will have his first taste of a Devon derby. The 30-year-old has started three Argyle games and has impressed Young, who said: "I think he has given us something a little bit different in midfield.

"He does like to drive at the defence and it just opens up more space for other players to make their runs.

"It's always nice to have a different variety and, to be fair to him, he has come in and done really well."
