Under No Illusions

ARGYLE manager John Sheridan is aware of the tough task his side face when promotion chasing Rotherham United come to town on Saturday.

The Millers have now won three on the bounce and moved into the final automatic promotion position on Tuesday after a 2-0 victory over Yorkshire rivals Bradford.

Sheridan, however, was keen to point out that Argyle have faced – and performed well against - equally tough opposition during the last few months.

“I could say this about the last eight or nine games, it’s going to be a tough one,” said Shez.

“I’ve always looked at every game and its going to be tough, Rotherham will be no different.

“Have a look over the last eight or nine games. All those games I thought were going to be tough but we did OK in them, the lot of them, so that’s what we’re going to do against Rotherham.”

Rotherham were one of the pre-season favourites to win the division and John is fully aware of the threat they pose to Argyle on Saturday.

He said: “They’ve got a big squad and got a lot of good players for this division in the team.

 “It doesn’t matter who they play really, they’re all going to be a threat and we have to be ready for that.

“No doubt they will come to try and win the game. Hopefully, we can stand up to them and test ourselves against one of the best teams in the division.”
