Raising It

WITH two games remaining, Argyle still hold their Sky Bet League 2 play-off aspirations in their own hands.

Despite a disappointing away defeat to Carlisle last weekend, Pilgrims manager John Sheridan wants his players to focus on getting a good result on Saturday as they host Tranmere Rovers in a vital clash at Home Park.

However, despite last week's setback, the Argyle boss is confident that his players know exactly what is there to be achieved this weekend. 

“I don’t really think I have to lift them," said John. "They know what’s at stake, they know I wasn’t happy with the performance (against Carlisle) and it’s down to them to respond. 

“Tranmere will come here in a positive mood after watching us last week but I know what we’ve got; I know how we can play. It’s important we get back to our A-game on Saturday.  

“Obviously I’ve got to try and pick a team that’s going to win us the game. We’ve trained well, we’ve had one or two meetings and [we know the Carlisle result] wasn’t acceptable. 

“However, we can do something about it by getting a good win on Saturday. We’ve still got something to aim for and we can still achieve something.”
