Plymouth Argyle Fight To Avoid Relegation
7:00am 27th April 2013
Plymouth Argyle are making a last ditch bid to ensure they avoid relegation.
The Pilgrims are away to Rochdale in their final match of the season.
A draw will be enough to secure their place in the Football League. Anything less will see their fate depend on the results of other teams near the bottom of the table.
Manager John Sheridan said: "All the teams at the bottom are probably playing like play-off form, so no, it's tough. It's still in our hands and if we can take care of the job ourselves, we know we're safe and that's what we're going to concentrate on.
"Not worrying about it, and looking over our shoulder what's going on elsewhere. We've got to go an get something from Rochdale, and if we do that, we'll stay in the League.
"It is a big game, because it's everybody's livelihood and it's important that the club stay in the Football League. So, we'll go there, we know it's going to be a tough game. Rochdale really haven't got anything to play for, but they're a really good footballing side. We've just got to worry about ourselves, go there and see the job through. We know if we get something from the game, we're safe."
Defeat against Rochdale would put Plymouth at risk of relegation, but four other teams would all need to overtake them.
So, the Pilgrims will be keeping a close eye on results for York City, Dagenham and Redbridge, Barnet and AFC Wimbledon.
