Blizz Doing the Biz

DOMINIC Blizzard is urging his Argyle team-mates not to put all their eggs in one basket this Easter.

The Pilgrims host Sky Bet League 2 leaders Burton Albion on Good Friday, before an Easter Monday trip to Portsmouth for a Dockyard Derby with an edge, as if one was needed.

After that, John Sheridan’s men will have just five matches left to cement their place in the division’s top seven and claim an end-of-season play-off spot.

Midfielder Dom believes that the Pilgrims must adopt the same, positive, approach to each of the final seven matches, regardless of the opposition. 

“We know what’s needed,” said the 31-year-old. “It’s stupid to think we can lose a certain amount of games – we are going into games thinking we can win and trying to be as positive as possible.

“They are all big games from now until the end of the season. Where we are in the league might chop and change, but you want to play against the better teams and certainly we’ve got two of the better teams in the league over the coming days. Hopefully, we can get some positive results.

“I feel confident and all the boys do, but it’s all well and good saying you feel confident and then going out and not performing. At the time of the season now, the most important thing is the wins –we’ll stick together and see where that takes us.”

Dom’s return to the Pilgrims’ starting line-up at Cheltenham last week coincided with bravura 3-0 victory after fine collective display, a good way to prepare for the visit Jimmy Floyd Hassbaink’s table-toppers and the subsequent trip along the coast.

Dom said: “Obviously a win was good but I think it was the manner of the way we won: we were pretty comfortable; we created quite a lot of chances; and we looked like we were a little bit better in possession.

“Take nothing away from that game but we are going into another game which will be completely different, so, if we start thinking we have cracked it, we might have a shock. Everyone’s feet are on the ground; we know how big games the next two are.”
