Careful Curtis

ARGYLE skipper Curtis Nelson has said he is happy with the position the Pilgrims are in - but warned that the season is far from over.

Argyle extended their lead at the top of the league to five points, with Portsmouth losing and slipping into third place. The Pilgrims have won 11 out of their 16 league games this season, with the next test being away at York City. 

"I'm happy with the position we're in at the moment," said Curtis. "Any team if they were in this position would be happy. At the same time, there is no point in saying we are five points clear, that's it, season over. 

"We have to keep going and looking to extend the lead at the top of the table. We've played 16. We've got 30 games left, that's a hell of a lot of football between now and May 7th. We need to make sure we keep winning games." 

Curtis was not of the opinion that topping the league will mean that teams have an extra incentive to beat Argyle, but said that teams will always want to beat the Pilgrims. 

"That's going to be the case. It doesn't matter whether you are sitting first, 15th, 12th, someone is always want to come down to a nice stadium, or when we go away to wherever we go, we are going to want to take the three points it doesn't matter what position they are in." 

Argyle will play at home in the FA Cup First Round against Carlisle next Saturday and the host Millwall in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy the following Tuesday. 

"It is what it is. At the end of the day. There is no way to get round it. We have got two cup games. We are just going to try and win every game we play, we're not ever going to go in saying we are not bothered about the cup. We are going to go there and try and get into the next round of the cup."
