Looking Forward to "Biggest Game"
ARGYLE manager John Sheridan is making sure his soaring Pilgrims do not put the cart before the horse in the Sky Bet League 2 stakes.
Like everyone, John is relishing Argyle's "biggest game of the season" next Tuesday, the Home Park Devon Expressway Derby against Exeter City, which is guaranteed to be played out in front of the biggest crowd of the season.
With the Pilgrims chasing promotion and City fighting to stave off relegation, stakes could hardly be higher.
However, Argyle face the not so small matter of a trip to Accrington this Saturday before they can focus fully on the old enemy.
“I want us to win at Accrington and get full on against Exeter," said John, "and I am sure will we will.
"Exeter is the biggest game of the season, so I want everyone to come and support us and get behind the team so that we can get three points for that game. But I have got to be aware and look forward to Accrington.
"Exeter is a massive game and I want all the supporters getting there and getting behind the team and push us on.
"We have got nine cup finals. I said before the Chesterfield game that we are in a mini-league of ten teams. Let’s finish in the top three of that league and we will be where we want to be at the end of the season.”
Indications are that the anticipated gate for Tuesday's Devon Expressway Derby will be well into five figures.
Supporters who have yet to buy a ticket for the game are urged not to leave it to the last minute.
To cope with demand, the Argyle Ticket Office at Home Park will remain open until 7pm on the eve of the game.
The club is also urging the Green Army to give themselves plenty of time to get to Home Park on match-day, and encouraging fans to arrive earlier than they normally would.
