Back To Cheltenham

ARGYLE will make a quick return to the scene of their first away win of the League 2 season after Saturday’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy draw paired them with Cheltenham Town.

The Pilgrims will revisit Whaddon Road, where they won 3-1 at the weekend, in the week beginning September 2 for the first-round tie.

“It’s a big competition for us,” said manager John Sheridan, who won the competition at Wembley with Chesterfield two years ago.

 “[It is] probably the only cup we are going to try to win, so we’ll give it a really good go. It might give me an opportunity to throw one or two in, but I’ll take it very seriously.

“It’s a good competition for us and we know the benefits of it if we can really do well in it. Financially, you can do okay.

“We will be trying to get as far as possible in it.

“I’ve done well in that competition previously. It was a great day out, something we won’t forget. I am sure the Chesterfield fans won’t forget it. It was a brilliant day.

“There’s not many times, as a player, you go and play there in a final. No matter what final it is, it’s a great occasion.”
