Another Step

JOHN Sheridan is hoping that a rare Argyle FA Cup with Budweiser victory will add to the Pilgrims’ small-step progress.

Argyle entertain Lincoln City at Home Park on Wednesday night, 11 days after the two teams were deadlocked 0-0 at Sincil Bank.

That draw was the fourth game in a five-match unbeaten sequence that will go on the line against Skrill Premier League opponents who are seeking to end Argyle’s FA Cup involvement at the first hurdle for the sixth successive season.

John said: “It’s another game we have got to try to win and stay on this little run we’re on, build a little more confidence, and stay together. We’ve got three games out of four at home, four out of five if we win tomorrow, so it’s an important time for us.

“We have got to be realistic – we are not going to win the competition but there is always that thrill of getting into the third round, fourth round, whatever, and getting a big team. It’s always been a great day for supporters and that’s something we have got to look to.”
John is committed to making one change to his team – between the posts, where goalkeeper Jake Cole will come in for his fifth cup appearance of the season.

“It’s a good opportunity to play him,” said John. “He performed well in the first game against them, and hopefully he’ll be the same this time.”
