It's A Must

JOHN Sheridan could not have been more unequivocal about Argyle’s prospects of remaining in the Football League.

Tuesday’s 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon left the Pilgrims bottom of League 2, three points adrift of safety, with just 12 games of the season remaining.

However, John said: “I definitely believe that we’ll get out of the position and we won’t be in the bottom two at the end of the season, and that’s the most important thing.

“I’ve got to make sure we do that. There are going to be a lot of twists and turns. We have got to try to win one or two games sooner, rather than later.”

Among the other relegation-threatened sides who picked up points on Tuesday were Edgar Davids’ Barnet, who beat Johnstone’s Paint Trophy finalists Southend 2-0 and who visit Home Park on Saturday.

“It’s a massive game,” said John. “They’ve had a great result.

“All the teams at the bottom are in a bit of form at the moment. We’re all scrapping.

“I know results have not gone great for us, but this could be a valuable point. I can’t fault the efforts of the players. We worked very hard for the point.”
