Love to Make Eight

ARGYLE travel to Morecambe on Saturday with manager Derek Adams defending a proud record...

...since taking charge of the Pilgrims in June 2015, he has never lost three EFL games in a row.

After successive home defeats by Grimsby Town and Barnet, that is just one of two records that go on the line at the Globe Arena. The other is an Argyle and current EFL best for successive away victories.

Derek said: “We have got a very good away record – it is a club record of seven wins on the bounce – and we want to continue that, add to that and go forward.

“We’d be really proud [to extend the record] and it would put us on a really good points total so far this season. We are going there to try win the match and come away with three points. 

“We’ve done exceptionally well away from home over the last two years; a lot of points have been gained.”

“It’s happening more and more in football in general, I think. Away from home, the home team really has to come out and play; the away team then plays on the counter attack.”
