Into the Valley

WITH Saturday’s trip to Sky Bet League One high flyers Bradford City on the horizon, Derek Adams know it is going to be a difficult trip for his players.

“They have done really well; they have done exactly the same as last year,” said Derek. “They were in the play-offs but unfortunately they didn’t get up. They’ve started the season exceptionally well and it’s going to be a tough game for us. 

“Their season tickets are less because of the capacity of the stadium, they have got a very good fan base and I’m sure they will be well into five figures on Saturday.” 

With Bradford scoring more headed goals than any other League One team this season, Derek knows that his team will have to be defend resolutely on Saturday against forward Charlie Wyke, and others. 

Derek said: “We have to deal well with balls into Wyke as he is a big player for them since they signed him for quite a bit of money from Carlisle. He scores goals for them and they will be decent at set plays and that’s something we shall have to deal with.” 

Derek feels the mood in and around the camp has not changed even though Argyle seemed to have turned a corner. It has not needed to, as the atmosphere has always been one of positivity.

“Nothing has changed,” he said, “we just weren’t getting the results we deserved. Nothing has changed since the start of the season from a mood point of view.”
