Review by Plymouth Argyle fan Daniel Perring
Why did you choose to go to this game and why were you looking forward to it?
Relatively short journey compared to other fixtures, and to tick another ground off the list. It was also the first game of the season.
How did you travel to the game and how easy was it?
Travelled by car which was very easy as it was mostly motorway. Short distance from junction to get back onto M5.
If you drove, was it easy to find car parking and make your way to the stadium?
We parked in an industrial estate lane. Was plenty of parking for away fans at the ground and in the train station car park opposite.
Which pubs did you go to before the game and what was the atmosphere like?
Park Inn Hotel (right next to the away end). There was a really good atmosphere, and it was good weather so fans spilled out into the garden and street area.
Where did you eat on your away day and was it good value?
McDonald’s. In the retail park car park right next to the ground and close to the parking.
What did you think of the away end and your view of the game?
A bit aged compared to the rest of the ground. Not very high up even in the back row, where I sat. Still a good view though.
What was the atmosphere like during the match?
Very good in the away end. Could hear the home fans at opposite end too.
How friendly were the home fans out of 10?
10/10. We didn’t have any issues. There were even comments made at end of the game from home fans wishing us a safe journey back.
How easy did you find it to get away from the stadium after the game?
Very easy as fans walked off in various directions and it didn’t feel too busy.
Would you recommend this away day to other fans?
Is there anything else you want to tell other away fans?
The result didn’t go in our favour but it’s a great place to go.
