Silly Season

ARGYLE manager John Sheridan is not a man given to counting chickens.

Was he, he was asked in the wake of Tuesday’s 2-1 victory at Chesterfield confident that, with 52 points and at 17th position in League 2, the Pilgrims were clear of relegation danger?

“Don’t ask me silly questions like that,” he replied instantly.

“Teams at the bottom of the league are winning and you just don’t know what results are going to go on – while there is still a chance we can go down, we have got to stay concentrated and make sure we stay in the league.”

That means there is little danger of Argyle taking it easy when promotion-seeking Rotherham come to town on Saturday for the final home game of the season.

John said: “While it’s still mathematical that people can still catch us, we’ll concentrate on getting the points we still need and focus on a tough team in Rotherham, who are going for automatic [promotion].

“We know it’s going to be a tough game but, hopefully, we’ll compete and carry on what we’ve been doing. If we do that, we’ll have a chance.”
