Pointing To Success

JOHN Sheridan has a points target in mind for Argyle’s back-to-back home games against Bradford, on Tuesday, and Fleetwood, on Saturday – and it is not what you think.

“If we can take four points from the two games, I’ll be very happy,” said John.

That is what he thinks will be enough to keep the Pilgrims competitive in the ‘relegation mini-league’ at the foot of League 2, the outcome of which might go all the way to April 27.

“I’ve said all along it’s going to be very tight,” he said. “You can see the ups and downs – you win one, you climb a couple of places; you lose one, and you fall.”

However, predicting who might do that on any given game-day is, John thinks, almost impossible.

“You don’t look at who’s playing who because there are so many funny results,” he said.

“We thought we had a poor result here against Oxford when we lost 1-0 – they have won every game [since] and they have beaten some good sides; we should have got something at Northampton, who are flying at home; Wimbledon [where Argyle drew] are getting good results.

“Anyone can beat anyone – we have just got to concentrate on ourselves.”
