Plymouth Argyle prepare to stake a claim on promotion.

They are pushing for a place in the play-offs.

But their next two games are against the top two teams.

They take on Scunthorpe this afternoon.

Boss John Sheridan wants fans and players united: "That's what I want. We were all fearing for relegation last season. We're looking a bit more positive now. Let's all think we can get in the playoffs and that's what I want everyone to think.  I want the crowd to get behind us on Saturday, which I know they will do, but I want the players believing that we've got a really good chance of getting in there. If you go in there positive thinking you can do something, go in there with that belief, you've got a better chance of doing it.

"They're really two attractive games obviously playing the two teams at the top of the division, they're the best teams in the division, they've proved that because they're at the top and they've been there a while. They're good games; we're in a bit of form ourselves so hopefully we can stand up to the test and show the good signs that we're showing at the moment."
