A look at Argyle’s final fixtures: Can they make the play-offs?
Plymouth’s fantastic run currently sees them sat second in the form table and in with a fantastic shot of reaching the play offs.
No team in the Premier and Football League have won more games than Argyle since the beginning of the 2015/16 season and a play-off finish in their first season back in League One would be a remarkable season.
They’ve won 10 in 14 now and with just two months to go, Derek Adams’ men now face some huge fixtures with those around them in League One.
Here’s a look at the final run in for the Pilgrims.
3rd - Rochdale (A)
10th - Fleetwood (A)
17th - Bristol Rovers (H)
24th - Charlton (A)
30th - Southend (H)
The month will start off fairly nicely for Adams, with Rochdale, who are all but relegated.
That could bolster their chances tremendously ahead of a tough set of fixtures. Plymouth are currently as high as 18/1 to be promoted according to the majority of the bookmakers that can be found on www.sportsbets4free.co.uk, but a good win against the Dale, on a weekend where Bradford face Portsmouth and Rotherham take on Gillingham, those odds could be slashed.
It’s a relatively good month for the Home Park faithful with the only side in and around the play-offs being Charlton, which will be a vital game.
Points should come in at least four of the five games however, and Adams will be looking to continue their red hot form.
He’ll be aiming for at least 10 points throughout March, setting them up for an important final month.
2nd - Scunthorpe (A)
7th - Peterborough (H)
14th - Portsmouth (H)
21st - Northampton (A)
28th - Rotherham (H)
April is looking a much trickier prospect with four of the five games against opposition in the top 10.
Scunthorpe will be looking to secure a position in the top six as soon as possible. The trip to Glanford Park on Easter Monday could show Plymouth as real contenders and will give them further impotess against fellow contenders Peterborough and Portsmouth.
Plymouth’s final two games will be tough for completely different reasons. Northampton could be fighting for their lives on April 21, with the Cobblers currently just one point off the drop zone.
Equally, Rotherham are fighting for a play-off place, which could mean a huge final day for both teams.
On the other hand, if the Millers have already qualified and Northampton are safe, it could play as a massive advantage and help extend Argyle’s season by a few more weeks. Wembley here they come?
