ARGYLE manager Derek Adams says there are many more obstacles to overcome, 17 of them, to be precise, between now and May.

Following Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over Walsall at Home Park, thanks to goals from centre-back pairing Ryan Edwards and Niall Canavan, the Pilgrims climbed out of the bottom four for the first time since August. 

“We have put ourselves in a very good position, 17th position,” said Derek. “It is a position that allows us to catch teams above us again; it is very tight in the league.

“I have said that before but I’m not going to get carried away because we have got to continue winning football matches. As soon as you start to get carried away, other teams are there to knock you down, so we will just keep on fighting the way we are.

"I said many months ago that having consistent team selection does help, every manager will tell you that. We have had a lot of injuries at the start of the season, we still have a few now. We have a stable team at this moment in time, which is enabling us to form relationships all over the pitch.

“We just need to keep working hard. We have put ourselves in a better position than we were in and we are finding our feet. We have 17 games to go to try and pick up as many wins as we possibly can to put ourselves in a good position at the end of the season.“
