If there was any doubt that Plymouth Argyle were in a fight against relegation, the 2-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers on Saturday confirmed that.

The Pilgrims dropped three positions to 18th in League One, only three points clear of the dreaded drop zone with four games still to play.

It leaves them facing a hugely important Easter doubleheader which will go a long way to determining their fate this season.

First of all, Argyle are away to 15th-placed Gillingham on Good Friday, with the Kent club only one point above them.

Then, on Easter Monday, the Pilgrims will host Barnsley, who are under pressure for their second spot in the table from Sunderland, Portsmouth and Charlton Athletic.

Manager Derek Adams was asked by Plymouth Live after the game against Doncaster whether he was worried about the threat of relegation and replied: “I think you are.

“We are in a position now that with four games to go we still have to pick up wins. If I say I’m not then I would be lying.”

He added: “We have got that long journey to Gillingham on the Friday and then to come back and play on the Monday against Barnsley.

“We obviously have to pick up points in these games.”

Among many team selection issues for Adams to consider ahead of the game against Gillingham is in attack.

The Pilgrims have failed to score a goal in five of their last seven away games.

Generally, 17-goal top scorer Freddie Ladapo has played as a lone central striker this season, with Ryan Taylor on the bench as a back up.

They have been tried as an attacking pair on a few occasions but without much success.

Taylor was a half-time substitute against Doncaster and went up front with Ladapo, and while it did not result in any goals for Argyle some of their link up play together was better.

Adams said: “They haven’t scored again as a two, which is disappointing, but we had a go at it.

“We have got to give a go at it between now and the end of the season.”

So that leaves open the possibility of Ladapo and Taylor both being included in the starting line-up against Gillingham.

Looked like a relegation squad from day one of the season - he is director of football, he should fall on his sword if the austerity squad go down - but he wont!
Business as usual no doubt next season regardless of what happens over the next five games.

Thats the problem,

Given what he's wasted a small budget on , You wouldn't give him anymore money.
You would be very wary of who he brings in cause he won't use them.

His brand of football along with the price increase is gonna cause the season ticket numbers go to down.

If by a miracle he keeps us up, he should move aside for someone who could bring more success to the club , because league 1 is proving to be about his pay grade.

This will keep happening for the next 4 years otherwise and we may not get lucky one of those 4.

Piss poor manager and even worse owner & chairman.   Not a good combination.   They deserve this relegation.  Not that they give a shit.  The fans however deserve so much better.

All this talk of Adams playing the wrong players makes me laugh, Adams knows more than we do how shite the squad is in fact we don't even have a full eleven of decent league 1 players. Shore Adams must take blame for that with mitigation for the budget which is the main culprit, but you can juggle shit all day long and is all you get is shitty hands.
Anyway like Brexit he is here for the foreseeable. If you don't like the product vote with your feet or shaddup and enjoy the ride.

If Adams had a board in charge who knew anything about football he'd be long gone. But fortunately for him they don't have a clue and are more interested in running the place like any other company.

Think its more after paying for one mistake (Mankover)
Hallett doesn't want to pay for another of brents, that being the paying off of Adams 5 year contract,or do anything to upset Brent,
when he's got two votes on the board and potentially is greasing brent up to sell more of the 30%.

Jethro I would disagree on this occasion as regards Hallett upsetting Brent.  Hallett didnt become a multi millionaire so removed from Brents ongoing shambles by being afraid to upset people
My view very sadly is the pair of them are in cahoots as Reg has said all along

I agree he wouldn't have made his money without upsetting people,

If he's buttering Brent up to get his shares on the cheap he wont do anything to add another nought to brents price.

Personally I don't think we will see what Hallett can do while theres two Brents on the board.

Maybe he isn’t investing in the team in the hope that Argyle are relegated so Brent’s 30% is worth less before he buys him out or someone he has lined up in the wings to do so.

As well as still being in a relegation fight it has to be said that as DoF Adams hasn't done anything to improve the club as a whole-no promising young players coming through and no players with potential signed either. For a club like Argyle with no sugar daddy the only way to financial security is to improve players whether home grown or bought in, to sell on. Yet the current squad must be one of the poorest for decades. Is there anyone among them that would command a six figure fee or have Championship Clubs fighting to sign them 

If this doesn't change soon, the club will sink further into debt and possibly another period in Administration.
