Plymouth Argyle are facing fresh fears they could drop out of the football league.

It is after going down to relegation rivals York City two-nil on Easter Monday.

Argyle, with three straight wins under their belts, were cast as the April Fool guys at Bootham Crescent, where the home side were victorious for the first time in 17 matches.

It was only the second time that the Pilgrims had conceded more than a goal in a game in the 14 matches since John Sheridan became manager.

Given that the previous occasion was at league leaders Gillingham, the result really does give credence to the gaffer’s oft-stated belief that anyone can beat anyone else in League 2.

First-half goals from Ashley Chambers and returning son of York Richard Cresswell secured three points for the home side that resurrected their Football League survival hopes.

Argyle remain one of eight other teams covered by five points and with everything to play for in this final month.

No excuses, but the Pilgrims looked plumb tuckered out after having given everything to beat Exeter two days earlier and then coaching the 338 miles to York on Easter Day.

Pilgrims boss John Sheridan isn't happy they're hovering one place above the drop zone: "We looked tired at the beginning, we looked tired at the end and we just didn't get going at all.

"No one on the pitch can come out with any credit at all.

"I thought it was a poor performance all round. I won't accept it and it's not on."

You can hear more of the manager's thoughts here...
