Son on Run-In
After Argyle’s impressive 4-0 win at home to Southend on Good Friday the Pilgrims’ would have wanted to continue their impressive run of form at Glandford Park, but it wasn’t to be – Scunthorpe’s ground was unplayable because of a deluge of rain.
0radley said: “With the form we are in and the spirit we have got it’s frustrating. We travelled all the way up to Scunthorpe, it’s not far from where I live, so I know how long a journey it is. So to get up there and find out its off in the morning, it’s obviously frustrating. It’s already been rearranged and that’s not going to be a problem, we will approach it with the same attitude that we were going with. We have got a tough run of fixtures and we have got to jam them all in to five or six weeks now.”
With the rest of Argyle’s play-off rivals playing and picking up three points, the Pilgrims dropped to ninth in the Sky Bet League One table. One point out of the play off positions.
[“They (the results) didn’t go our way, but I don’t look too far into it,” said Sonny. “I am not really bothered about what’s going on around us. With seven games left it is definitely in our hands, if we concentrate on ourselves and win our games then we will be in the play offs.
“We are playing all the teams around us as well, which is good for us as we have proven this season and the time I have been here, when it comes down to the big games we turn up. It is going to be an interesting month and I am looking forward to it, if we continue playing the way we are I don’t see any reason we can’t finish in the play offs.”
Peterborough moved up to fifth after Monday’s 2-0 victory over Northampton Town and Bradley knows the Greens are in for a tough test.
“It will be a good game,” said Sonny “Peterborough are a good team to be in the mix, going forward especially they have got big threats. We have got to handle it; manage them and handle the occasion. I’m sure it is going to be full here at Home Park on Saturday, which is what we want. We want the crowd behind us again like we did against Southend, it helps massively. If we get a good start, get the ball in their half and play our football then I think we will be on for a good result.”
Argyle’s defenders will be in for a tough test on Saturday when Sky Bet League One’s leading goalscorer comes to Home Park. His name is Jack Marriott, and Bradley acknowledged Argyle need to keep the Posh attacker quiet.
“He is clearly a very good player do be scoring goals like that in this division,” said Sonny. “He has caused us a few problems in the past at Luton and at Peterborough so we know what he can bring to the table. It is our job as a team and a defence to mark him out of the game. I think if we can keep him quiet and the rest of the attackers, I don’t see where their threat will come from. It is going to be a tough task keeping them quiet but if we do I don’t see why we won’t win the game.”
