WITH Argyle’s 2-0 victory over AFC Fylde securing their spot in the FA Cup Second Round, John Sheridan is keen to take his side as far as possible in the competition.The Pilgrims’ progression in the FA Cup was secured by an efficient display and two goals from corners delivered by Ollie Norburn.
After 27 minutes, Peter Hartley rose the highest to head past Coasters ‘keeper Ben Hinchcliffe and put the Greens ahead. Marvin Morgan then put the game beyond doubt with 20 minutes to go, capitalising on Carl McHugh’s clever knock-down and nodding home from close range.
The manager was pleased to successfully navigate a tricky fixture against the Conference North division leaders, whilst others slipped up against lower-league opposition.
He said: “We are in Round Two, and this is the FA Cup; obviously there’s the game last night that you all would have watched, and there are even one or two results today, like Southend losing at home to Chester. It is just that magic of the FA Cup.
“I am pleased we are in the hat; we know we have got to play better, and we can play a lot better. But we are in there. We will wait and see who we get.
“I think you are always just looking for a home game, if you can get one. We will just try and get as far as we can.
“Obviously I think about the financial side – and I am sure everyone does – of getting a big team, and trying to get something out of it.
“We are not going to win it, but while you are in it, you are still excited about who you could possibly face.”
