Andres Gurrieri: Plymouth Argyle 'have to beat' Exeter

Plymouth Argyle midfielder Andres Gurrieri says beating rivals Exeter City in League Two would be an early Christmas present for the fans.

The Argentine who signed from Burton Albion in the summer is excited about his first derby with the Grecians.

"I remember at the start of the season the fans saying when we play Exeter we have to beat them," said Gurrieri.

"It's going to be my Christmas gift to the fans. It'll be a good way to close 2012, we'll give it everything."

Argyle ended a run of six league games without a victory on Saturday beating York City 2-0 at Home Park.

"It's very good when you win, we were all celebrating in the changing room," Gurrieri told BBC South West Sport.

"I've seen a lot of fans in the street talking about the Exeter game, saying we've got to win. It's pressure but I like that.

"I like that pressure from the fans; this derby is the most important in Devon and I'm really excited and looking forward to it."
