We're Worth It
ARGYLE manager John Sheridan wants Argyle’s 1-0 victory at Luton to be the foundations for a tilt at the top of Sky Bet League 2.Midfielder Dom Blizzard’s goal midway through the second half at Kenilworth Road proved enough to claim a first away win of the season, topping off a disciplined team display and coming a week after a 2-0 home triumph against Southend United.
John said: “It was nip and tuck in the first half, but I’d like to concentrate on the second-half performance – it was 0-0 and we took the game to them a little bit more. We looked solid and we caused them problems.
“I am very pleased to keep a clean sheet and come and win 1-0. It was a tough game. [Luton] are a good team. They move the ball quickly; you could see that in the first half.
“You are going to come under the cosh when you are away from home – the home team is usually going to bring the game to you – but I said told the players: ‘Stay solid, help each other’. We got organised because [Luton] do pass the ball and have one or two players up front who get into areas and give you problems.
“The second-half performance was really good. We got them on the back foot a little bit more and moved the ball a little bit quicker. You get the goal and you get something to hang on to, and I thought we saw the game out really well.
“It was a team performance. We had one or two opportunities to score other goals and didn’t take them but I won’t grumble – we came; we kept a clean sheet; and we won the game; three points is the most important thing.
“Hopefully, it will get us on a little run – two games, six points, and now we’ve got a tough game against one of the teams that is doing really well this season, Morecambe.
“I want us up there and competing. There’s no way I’ll be getting carried away and I’ll make sure my players won’t get carried away. We’ll try and carry on and win as many games as possible and get us in a healthy position.”
