The Future is Now

JOHN Sheridan revealed that, following Argyle's 4-0 defeat to Bury, his team selections for the remainder of the season will be made with the future in mind.

Goals from Andrew Tutte, Danny Rose, and a brace from Daniel Nardiello handed the Pilgrims their worst away defeat of the season at the JD Stadium, and left them with only the slimmest of hopes of making the Sky Bet League 2 playoffs.

After the game, the manager admitted that he will now be focusing more on next season's prospects, as well as using those final three games as a chance for younger players to stake a claim for a first-team place.

"Now I've got to plan for next season, so I've got to get the game out of the way and think of the future, and the team next year,” John said.

"The season's over now, so I might give one or two younger players a run-out, see if they can stand up to it and have a little look at them.

"I'm going to build a team next year - a different team to what I've had this year, and we're going to push and do better than we have done this season."

Shez also believes that fresh faces will need to be brought into to help push the club to bigger and better things, and has pledged to put together a squad of players capable of achieving his high expectations.

"I'm going to have to make some big decisions," said Sheridan. "My mind is set now on what I need to do.

"The season's over now. I've got to try and build a stronger team for next year, so I'm going to find players, and I've got to do better than I've done this year.

"I'm telling you now: I will work my socks off to the bring players in who have got a bit of drive and a bit of will to win."
