Picking Up

ARGYLE defender Carl McHugh, has reaffirmed the need for the Pilgrims to move on from the weekend’s frustrating defeat away at Morecambe.

Fourth-placed Wycombe Wanderers are the visitors in tomorrow’s Sky Bet League 2 fixture and McHugh is determined to use the weekend’s disappointing result and ‘turn it into a positive’ as Argyle look to build upon this season’s unbeaten home record of two wins and a draw.

“The lads were really frustrated after the game,” said Carl. “We should have come away from Saturday with a draw, but a loss of concentration led to a goal.

“I think we were playing well enough. We felt really comfortable and we had a lot of possession in the second half but we just weren’t clinical enough.

“You’re going to have your disappointments, but you have to try and not get too down about it or get too carried away when you have a few good results. We just have to focus on ourselves as a group of players and staff and put in the performances.”

Despite struggling to impress at home this season, Wycombe Wanderers have managed to secure seven points from a possible nine on the road and McHugh is more than aware of the threat they will pose.

Argyle, for their part, are unbeaten at Home Park, having won two and draw two of their fixtures in PL2.

Carl said: “They’ve made a good start and they’ll come here and look to get forward with some good players. Every match in this league, as we all know, is really tough but if we play with our capabilities, we’ll do well with a good chance of getting a win.

“We have to keep on picking up points. That’s what we’re trying to do. Our home form has been decent so far and we just have to keep putting points on the board and playing to move ourselves up the table.”
