Proud Of The Pilgrims

20 April 2013

ARGYLE manager John Sheridan was proud of his players’ performance against Rotherham United, despite narrowly losing their last home match of the season 1-0 to the Millers.

The result leaves the Pilgrims in 19th position in npower League 2, two points above the drop zone with one game – away to Rochdale next week – still to be played.

“They couldn’t give me anymore,” said John “I’m proud of the players.

“We went for the result and I thought we deserved something from the game. I can’t fault their efforts; it’s just one of those things, they switched off and it ended up costing us.”

Only a single goal, scored by Keiran Agard in the 75th minute, separated the promotion-hunting Millers from the battling Pilgrims, something which Sheridan felt Argyle did not deserve.

John said “They’re a good team; they’re up there, with one of the biggest budgets.

“They’ve got some of the best players in this division. We matched them all the way; we didn’t deserve to lose – it’s a shame. A draw would have virtually kept us up.”

Sheridan’s focus now turns to a huge game at Rochdale, which will decide Argyle’s immediate future. A draw will secure the Pilgrims’ Football League.

“I’m sure we will have a massive support next week – there’s no danger there,” said John.

“We’re in a better position than four or five [other] teams – that’s the way we have to look at it.

“And we know what we have to do. We’ll focus and I’ll get them prepared to get the result.”
