Our Army

ARGYLE defender Peter Hartley has no doubt that the Green Army can play a vital role in the Pilgrims’ Wembley bid.

The Green Army have besieged Home Park all week, seeking tickets for the two-leg Sky Bet League 2 play-off semi-final against Wycombe Wanderers.

The Pilgrims allocation of 1,800 for Thursday’s away, second, leg was exhausted within three and a half days, during which time more than 12,000 tickets were snapped up for the opening game at Home Park on Saturday evening.  

“It’s different class,” said Peter. “The more people we get in that stadium, the better. It’s a fact that, when we’ve had a big home crowd this season, we’ve produced: Exeter; Portsmouth; we’ve always produced.

“It’s credit to the fans; they’ve been quality all season. We’ve had some good results, and we’ve had some bad results, and I think that’s why we’re in the play-offs and not automatically promoted. 

“On our day, we’re more than capable of beating anyone in the League. If the fans could really get behind us, it will really help us.

“It will be like a wave; Wycombe won’t know what hit them if we get a good strong tempo, and if the fans start getting behind us, really believing that we can get something.”
