HOME Park homefield advantage looks like being vital to Argyle’s chances of reaching the Sky Bet League 2 play-offs.
With four of their seven remaining games taking place in PL2 3DQ, starting with this Good Friday’s visit of league leaders Burton Albion, the Pilgrims need to maintain or better home form that has seen them average a smidgen under two points per game.
Opposing them in front of a Bank Holiday Green Army crowd are Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Brewers, who boast the division’s second-best away form across a campaign that has been consistently top-notch.
Argyle midfielder Dominic Blizzard said: “Around this time of the season, you are there through how you have performed throughout the season. They are a decent team and it will be hard game, but it is something we can rise to.
“We are always confident at home. Even if we haven’t always played well, we’ve picked up points. That’s been very important. We go into the game confident and will try to take the game to them.
“Particularly at home, getting behind the team is really important. The fans have been excellent all season, home and away. We’ll do our best and hopefully the fans will get right behind us and spur us on to get the victory.”
Dom, 31, sees little comparison between Argyle’s position now – in the last of the four play-off places – to where there were this time last season, when their campaign rather fizzled out.
“We were having to chase games too much towards the end and it kind of got a little bit out of our reach,” he said. “We know what’s needed; we know we have got to win enough games to get into the play-offs – it’s as simple as that. We are not going to take our eye off things.
“The most important thing is trying to get three points and we’ll try to do the best we can.”
