Action Stations

PILGRIMS’ goalkeeper Luke McCormick is looking for a road-trip response from his team-mates to Saturday’s disappointing 1-0 home defeat by in-form Accrington Stanley.

The Argyle skipper will lead the team out at Crawley, next week, and Portsmouth, on Good Friday, before the Pilgrims return to Home Park to face Newport County on Easter Monday.

With only three games of the season to come after that treble, Luke is as eager as the Green Army for Argyle to accumulate the points that they need to claim promotion, sooner, rather than later. With more wins away from home, than at Home Park, this season, that is at least a possibility.

He said: “There have been lots of question-marks about our form at home and I suppose, when you look at it, they are quite right, but I don’t think we can dwell on it. 

“We have got six huge games now and we need to get over the line as quick as we can. We’ll put it to bed for now and go to Crawley, and hopefully we can get three points.

“We’re confident, when we go away from home, that we can produce the performance to win the game but – listen – it’s no good me sitting here saying we’re going to do this. The only thing that matters is, come Saturday afternoon, whether we actually do it.

“All the taking’s been done – it’s now down to actions.”
