We Go Again

9 January 2017

DEREK Adams has promised the Green Army that the Pilgrims will “give it a go” when Liverpool come to Home Park for their Emirates FA Cup third-round replay.

The Pilgrims earned a second crack at the Barclay’s Premier League second-placed side thanks to a 0-0 draw at Anfield on Sunday which was built on a solid and disciplined defensive e display.

Speaking after the match, the Argyle manager said: “The main purpose of today was to try to win the match but, if we couldn’t win it, to take[Liverpool] back to Home Park.

“Liverpool are a very good team. Will they change things for the next game? I’m not sure.

“We will give it a go. We will have to be very good, defensively, as we were today. We’ll have to open up a bit to get through to the next round.”

What will not change will the backing of the Green Army, 8,500 of who filled the Anfield Road end on Sunday.

“They were very vocal,” said Derek. “The atmosphere they created for us was excellent and they deserved their day out here. We go back to Home Park now, looking forward to taking Liverpool back there.”

The one downer on a memorable day in Pilgrims’ history was a second-half injury to right-back Gary Miller, who did not travel back with the team but stayed in Liverpool

“Gary’s possibly got a broken ankle of ankle-ligament damage,,” said Derek. “He has gone to hospital to have an x-ray and we will wait and see the extent of his injury.

“He went up for a header, came down, and twisted the ankle. I’m told the footage doesn’t look good.”
