The Plymouth Argyle boss warns that their relegation battle is set to go right to the wire.

Argyle have travelled up country to take on Northampton on Saturday, who have one of the best home records in the division.

The Pilgrims are currently hovering just above the League Two drop zone, on goal difference.

There are only six points separating the bottom six teams. Manager John Sheridan reckons every point counts.

He said: "It's very tight, you know, we've conceded the least goals but I think my biggest downer is just the way we're playing at the moment performance wise. I think people expect us to play alot better, and be on the front foot and be more positive in games.

"I feel there's probably eight teams there who will be fighting. I feel as though it'll go right to the wire. They are picking up points and they're getting results. It's important we stay in the pack.

"But we've just got to focus on ourselves, no-one else. If we can get one or two victories, it just gives you that little bit of leeway, a bit of confidence and hopefully it gets you in a better position."
