John Happy To Paint Greens As Underdogs

DESPITE an eight-match unbeaten run, John Sheridan believes his Argyle side are underdogs when they meet Coventry City in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Wednesday night.

The Sky Bet League 1 side – who exited the FA Cup on Sunday after a home defeat to Worcester City – will meet John’s Pilgrims at the Ricoh for a chance to reach the last eight of the competition.

Whilst Coventry have been given the title of favourites, this has not bothered Sheridan, who feels his side are ready for the challenge – if they can shake off a malaise that has been contained in recent games.

“We’re going to have a go,” said John, “We’re not going to go there and fear anything. We’re just going to have a go and try and win the game.

“It’ll be a tough game, we’ll go there as underdogs, but we’ll go there confident that we can cause an upset.

“I think they’re up for the fight and we’ll give it a really good go.

“We’ll go there unbeaten in eight and hopefully the lads are confident that we can get a result and that we can do that.

“We’re taking the game really important, and hopefully we can get through the tie.”

“To be fair I don’t think that we’ve played well the last two games.

“I think we’ve just got that something about us at the moment, to go in thinking that we can get something from the game.”
