Looking Up

JOHN Sheridan intends to keep his feet firmly on the ground, despite his Argyle side's strong recent form.

With the Pilgrims winning their last two games and on a seven-game unbeaten run, spirits are certainly high amongst fans and players alike, but the manager is keen to stay realistic.

A 2-1 victory over Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday was the second victory at Home Park in a week, but before anyone gets carried away, the manager has a message for us all.

"I know what football's like," said John, "I've been a manager for six or seven years now, and it's a funny game.

"We're 14th now, but I want us to be higher and I expect us to be higher.

“Three or four weeks ago everyone was telling me how bad it was, so I won't change. I'm going to work even harder to get us up the table, where I think we should be."

With an important midweek game against Torquay United, John will be making sure the players take the game very seriously, to ensure their successful streak continues.

The manager said: "The most important thing is we win the game and try and get away from the bottom."

"We're just looking up, and if you win a few games, you've got a chance."
