Getting Ugly

ARGYLE manager John Sheridan is not concerned with how his team get their next win - he just wants to see it happen.

The Greens looked to set to end a run of five games without a victory as Reuben Reid scored his twelfth league goal of the season during stoppage time of the first half.

Seven minutes after the break, though, Jack Redshaw equalised with a close-range header from a corner, as the Pilgrims relinquished their stranglehold on a game they were well on the way to winning, and ended up drawing 1-1 with the Shrimps.

Sheridan’s side have now not taken three points from a game since December 20 – a 3-0 victory against Dagenham & Redbridge – and the boss is desperate to see that run come to an end by any means necessary.

“We need an ugly win,” said John, “and that’s what I said at half time: just win the game 1-0.

“It doesn’t matter how we play, it is just the points that are the most important thing at this moment in time.

“We know we have got to win games, and it’s not about how well you play. It is about grinding them out.

“From what we have been at home, where we have been lively and created lots of chances, I just feel as though we need a break, and we just need to get a win. That might just give us a lift, because at the moment we are a little bit flat.

“Only we can change that. We have got to get on with it and stand up for ourselves, because we are not where we want to be, or getting the results we want. Whatever happens and whatever is said, you just have to take it on the chin, because we know that’s how football is. That is what we will do.

“I will not hide from anything, I will just carry on and believe - but games are going quickly, and a point again is not good enough for where we want to be.

“The most important thing at this moment in time is getting three points.”
