Miles And Miles And Miles

THREE hundred and thirty miles.

That is the mammoth distance separating the Globe Arena, the home of Saturday’s opponents Morecambe, and Home Park.

But, despite the geographical void, Argyle manager Carl Fletcher is still relishing the hours on the coach for the npower League 2 fixture.

“We're looking forward to it - even though it's going to take about seven hours,” said Carl.

“Jim [Bentley] has got a really good team up there.

“They are one of the only sides in the league that have been playing three at the back so it'll be a tough test.

“They've got some real good pros so we'll be looking forward to the game.“

The Pilgrims go into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers.

After that game, Fletch was critical of the performance and insists that the Pilgrims must match up to the standards he expects.

He said: “I think [the draw with Bristol Rovers] shows where we've come that we're disappointed.

“Last year, we were delighted with a draw with Bristol Rovers. But now we're looking at the performance which wasn’t where we want it to be but it's a work in progress and we'll keep going.

“Some games this season we've not played great in the first half and then been better in the second so I think that's just the way football goes.

“I think we always want better.

“Every game - better and better. I'm a bit hard to please and I think that this season, we set ourselves standards and when we don’t meet them, we get disappointed.

“It's good that we're setting our stands so high because that’s what we want.”
