ARGYLE will fight all the way to win the Sky Bet League Two title.
Sonny Bradley’s early second-half header at Doncaster Rovers lengthened the distance between the Pilgrims and the leading challenger in the play-off positions to 13 points and shortened their odds to win promotion.
The 1-0 victory also moved second-placed Argyle to within three points of their division-leading hosts, opening up a potential title-battle over the last seven games of the campaign. That suits the Pilgrims’ match-winner just fine.
“We want to win the league,” said Sonny.
“We aren’t looking behind us – alright, it’s 13 points; it’s a very good gap with seven games to go, but we’re looking up and we want to overtake Doncaster.
“I’ve said before that our target is not just to get promoted – our target is to win this division and we are going to do everything in our power to do that.”
They had to give more or less everything to keep Doncaster at bay on Sunday, but, as so often this season, they refused to be broken.
“When you go 1-0 up and you are away from home against team like Doncaster, you can expect them to come in with a couple of chances,” said Sonny.
“When we’ve got the bodies we’ve got, you feel confident that the other team are not going to score and you are going to keep a clean sheet.
“This bunch of lads will fight for everything. We won’t stop fighting until we win, and, if it means throwing our bodies on the line, that’s exactly what we’ll do; we’ve done it today and we’ve got the three points.
“We’re in good spirits, so let’s just and keep the momentum going and keep the confidence up.”
