We go again, this time against a team that are playoff contenders, 7 points ahead and with 2 games in hand on us.
Usually play 352 or similar, score plenty of goals, narrowly lost to a late winner by Chelsea in the FA Cup having missed a penalty to win it and can be an absolute handful on their day.
We need to redeem ourselves after some poor recent performances although I suspect we're playing for pride now, but it will be a measure of whether or not this squad can compete with teams further up this league as Evatt claims we can.
Although Plymouth's home form is better than their away form it will be a big test for Evatt, big test for the players especially the defence, but surely we have to get a response and win this one?

This will be another tough test and i reckon it will end in a draw and finally put to bed the play-off ambitions.

A draw maybe - isn't that what often happens when two high-scoring teams meet?

We'll get dicked. No steel in midfield.

1-3 to Plymouth.

To say this is a six pointer is an understatement. Mathematically we would not be out of it with a loss, but common sense says wait till next season.

I think failing to beat Morecambe ended any hopes this year but failure to take all 3 points against Plymouth certainly will be. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this one as I am going to watch my Granddaughter play for Milmoor Juniors in her cup final against Whitehall in Huddersfield, so I’m hoping for a double!! Plymouth look a good side so it will be one of our toughest games left but I think with everyone fit we should just squeeze it 2-1.

On a slightly different note, I know we all feel huge sympathy for Gethin but isn’t it about time that he got back into it? Any of us who’ve lost parents know how hard it can be but without trying to be harsh I just think it’s bordering on a bit stretched now.

It was always going to be a tight game and one moment of poor defending by Johnstone gifted it.
That said, we struggled again to play the killer final pass and really didn't do enough
Also thought Evatt's tactics in the first half didn't help the cause.
Worried about Fossey.

Looks like our goose is cooked.
Again, we were the better team overall, but something is missing. 
No one is to blame, all put in the effort as usual.  Just an observation I lost count of the numbers of times Dapo gave away possession - Sadlier once again looked useful as soon as he stepped on the pitch. 
I guess just consolidate for the rest of this season  ..dunno..

A win wouldn't have flattered us. But equally can't complain at the result. They did ok as the away team. 

If the one off the post had gone in we might have had enough momentum to go on and win because they would have opened up even more.

Also, it was going to be hard 1-0 down, and down to ten men for the last 18 mins of playing time.

Yet again poor defending by Johnston cost us, he's the weak link in our back 3. Yet again we spend too much time passing around in our own half and didn't show enough intensity or energy in trying to get the equaliser.

Hopefully people will now stop going on about the play offs now, we are in 10th which is about right i think.

We're 11th mate - and we play the team who are 2 points ahead of us with two games in hand on us - Portsmouth - in a couple of weeks.
They're playing Plymouth on Tuesday.
Also Wigan, Rotherham, Sheff Wed and Wycombe are all playing one of their games in hand on Tuesday.
We'll do well to crack the top ten from here, but you're right - we need to focus on improving our performances and resolving our problems.

The super computer placed us at 14th a few weeks back - no reason to doubt it at this point. 
People are blaming Johnson for yesterday which is nonsense of course. Yes the error was his but the rest of the team were off - also Johnson has been one of our better players lately.
I said weeks ago that Dapo is begging to look like a flash in the plan - some are believing now - at any rate he is not a number 10.

Johnston is poor full stop TA, cost us quite a few goals this season and needs to be replaced, he just isn't physical enough and can't pass out from the back as well as he thinks he can.
