Spring Forward

JOHN Sheridan is looking to use Argyle’s 1-1 draw with Burton Albion as a springboard for positive results in upcoming fixtures.

Following the Pilgrims’ 1-1 draw against Burton Albion, in which Carl McHugh scored a late equaliser following Kevin Stewart’s deflected strike on 33 minutes, Argyle now look forward to a string of games that could define their season, beginning with Portsmouth on Easter Monday.

The Greens will go to Fratton Park in the Sky Bet League 2 playoff places and eager to solidify their spot with positive results in not just the away games, but the subsequent visits to Home Park of Mansfield Town and AFC Wimbledon.

“I’ve said that the next few games are big games. We will go and try and win the game and that’s what we have to do,” said John.

“It’s very tight with all the results, so there’s still teams in and around, believing. We’re in a good position so we have just got to try and keep winning games, or try and get something out of games.

“We’ll train early Sunday and then it won’t be long. It’s just looking after people who have got little knocks.

“Obviously there are loads of games coming thick and fast, so it’s just a stretch and a little loosener and getting people prepared, if I have to make changes for the game, which I won’t be frightened of doing, possibly I’ll do it.

"We’ve got lots of players [available]; I left three players off the bench today: Ollie [Norburn], [Lee] Coxy and Rodders [Aaron Bentley].

"One or two might get a chance, but I’ll go and try and put a team that I think can obviously win us the game."
