FA CUP: Argyle vs Sheffield United

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:04am 6th December 2014.


Plymouth Argyle hope to become FA Cup giant killers.

They travel to Sheffield United to fight for a place in the third round on Saturday.

Boss John Sheridan reckons they can cut down the Blades: "They're obviously a big club, a lovely big stadium and a nice pitch so it's always a tough place to go and play and get a result. But it's a good game for us it'll be a real good test, they're a good team and hopefully we can stand up for ourselves and give a good account of ourselves.

"It's massive just to get in the hat and the excitement of the draw plus the big teams are going to come in and it's always good if you can get one and financially it's good if you can get one. But we want to get as far as we can in this competition."
