No Settling For Second
ARGYLE manager Derek Adams is in no doubt whatsoever over who he thinks will be lifting the Sky Bet League 2 title in May.
The Pilgrims’ grip on top spot in the division was loosened towards the end of January, as Northampton Town’s winning run saw them rise to the top of the pile. Argyle, however, still remain the Cobblers’ nearest challengers, and Adams remains as confident as ever that his side can defy expectations and return to the summit.
Asked if he thought Northampton would win the league, Derek’s answer was simple: “No, I think we will win the league.
“I think that we’re the ones that want to try and do that. Our aim is to go above Northampton. We’ve shown this season that we’re capable of beating them. We won away from home against them this season, and we’ve picked up a good number of points.
“We’re looking to win the league. We’re looking to pick up as many points as we possibly can. We’re in an excellent position in the league, and we’re within striking distance of Northampton. If we do the same as we did in the first number of games, then we’ll go up as champions. There’s no doubt about that.”
When firing on all cylinders, the Greens have shown they are more capable of seeing off the best that League 2 has to offer, and the boss will remain committed to the tactics and style of football that have paid dividends for Argyle so far this season.
“We’re going to try and play exactly the same way as we always do,” said Derek.
“We’re probably one of the best teams in the league at passing and moving the ball with pace and guile, and we’re going to play the same way from now until the end of the season. Yes: in different games, as we’ve shown against Carlisle away, we’re very adaptable.”
