Not Like Old Times

IT is only three and a half years since Argyle last visited Scunthorpe United yet, for fans of both sides, it must seem an aeon or two ago.

In March 2010, both were Championship outfits; now, each is looking to escape from a division two below.

Not one of the Pilgrims who lost 2-1 at Glanford Park under Paul Mariner’s management last time there remains at Home Park: ten are plying their trade at a higher level, including three in the Premier League.

All of which amounts to the square root of squiddly dot as the two teams shape up to do battle at the same venue this weekend..

“That’s the past,” said Argyle manager John Sheridan. “We’re both in the second division now and fighting to get out. I’m sure they both had better players. They were both in the Championship, so obviously they did.

“I don’t look at the past. I look at the present and concentrating on what we’re going to do.”

“Like any game, we’ll go there and believe we can get something from the game, which I know we can if we perform.”
