Derek Looking For Pleasure, Not Pain, By The Seaside

29 December 2017

ARGYLE Manager Derek Adams is hoping his side can continue their climb up the Sky Bet League One table as they travel to Blackpool on Saturday.

The Greens have won their last two matches and have gone four unbeaten in the League in recent weeks which has propelled them up to 19th and just three points behind 12th positions.

Having won on Boxing Day against MK Dons Adams is looking for more of the same this Saturday.

Adams said: “Going away from home and picking up three points is excellent, and at this time of the year after coming off a very good win at home to Oldham, to go away to MK Dons and win has allowed us to catch a few teams above us.

“We have just been able to keep on winning games, and that’s what you need. Draws are good at some point, but wins are vital in this league.”

When asked about whether he felt Argyle were doing anything different in particular from the start of the season, Adams felt his squad returning to near full fitness was the key difference.

“The biggest difference is that the injuries and the suspensions have cleared up,” he said. “That has enabled us to have a stronger squad and to not have too many changes to the starting line up or the eighteen and that has benefited us with the games we have played.”

With Argyle only one point behind Blackpool going into Saturday’s game Adams knows it is not going to be easy for the Pilgrims to continue their run.

“They have changed their style a bit from last season,” said Derek. “We are looking to go there; we won their last year 1-0 in the League and it was a good day at the start of the season. It is another difficult journey for us but, we are looking forward to the game. They are a good side and started the season very well and have got used to life in League One very well.’

“We are one point behind them, and we just have to try and win the game and get above them. That’s what we have been trying to do in the last number of games and we have been able to do that, and this one is a game we want to win again.”
