Taking Stock

AFTER Argyle were defeated by Wycombe Wanderers in their Sky Bet League 2 play-off semi-final, John Sheridan was questioned on his own future as well as that of the members of his squad.

First-half goals from Paul Hayes and Alfie Mawson gave the Pilgrims an insurmountable task to achieve at Adams Park and, despite the late response from Ryan Brunt, the Chairboys took their place at Wembley, leaving the Greens to look towards preparation for another push for promotion next season.

Now that the season is over, there comes the annual sort-out of the playing and management staff that will begin the next campaign. 

“It’s something I’ve got to look at," said John. "I’ve got to make decisions about myself and players who are out of contract. At this moment in time it’s a bit hard to talk, but I’ve got to make some decisions.

“I’ll reflect on tonight, because I’m down at the moment – we’re all down in the dressing room. I’ll reflect on it and think about my position as well. 

“It’s a brilliant club. I’ve been here two years now and I know I’ve got another year on my contract. I’m 100% with the club and I truly believe I can get them out of the division. 

“I’ll make decisions tomorrow when I reflect on the season. I’m not thinking about it, but the club wants to obviously go forward and be successful, and whether I’m the right man, I don’t know. I’m very down at the moment and gutted for everyone involved.”
