Calling for Consistency

WITH Argyle’s busy Christmas period beginning with a 2-1 win over Bury at Home Park, manager John Sheridan is calling for consistency from his players.

Reuben Reid’s 78th-minute winner ensured the Pilgrims took three points from their first of four matches in 12 days.

The manager knows the importance of getting points over this period, and is eager to see the lads continue to put in good performances.

Sheridan said: “In the last three league games, we could’ve easily got seven points. We’ve only picked up three, but we’re playing alright.”

Whilst these good performances have not managed to bring in as many points as he would like, John believes that consistency is the key - not just to the upcoming fixtures, but for overall success in Sky Bet League 2.

“The magic word is ‘consistency’,” said John.

“If you’ve got six or seven players who will give you seven out of ten in every game, you’ve got a good side, and you’ll win more games than you lose. We’re getting better at that.”

An added Christmas bonus for the Greens is an almost fully-fit squad to choose from in the next couple of weeks – a priceless asset at this time of the year.

John said: “I think everyone will be fit for the Oxford game [on Boxing Day]; Tope Obedayi will back and Conor [Hourihane] is available after suspension, so I’ve got a strong squad to pick from.”
