Plymouth Argyle have over-achieved this season, declares manager Derek Adams

We might have dropped out of the automatic promotion positions in League Two but manager Derek Adams still believes they have over-achieved this season.

The Pilgrims are fifth in the table as they prepare to take on sixth-placed Portsmouth in a crunch clash at a packed Fratton Park on Saturday (3pm).

It follows a run of two wins, one draw and five defeats from their last eight games, which has badly dented their hopes of a top three finish.

Adams took over as manager from John Sheridan last summer and has worked with a small squad this season.

Fourteen of Argyle's players have made 38 appearances or more in all competitions.

The Pilgrims were in the top three for most of the campaign until losing the last couple of matches but Adams is still upbeat about what has been achieved to date.

The Argyle manager has seen results go against his promotion-chasing Pilgrims in their last two games, where individual errors, rather than a poor team display, have cost them a top-three automatic promotion spot.

With the going getting tough – and five matches to play, starting at promotion rivals Portsmouth on Saturday – Derek is looking for his tough guys to keep on going

The Pilgrims go into Saturday’s Dockyard Derby at Portsmouth firmly ensconced in the Sky Bet League 2 play-off positions, three points and two positions behind Accrington Stanley, the team in the third of the division’s three automatic promotion positions.

Up until the last few games, Argyle had enjoyed a more or less season-long occupation of a top-three place. Even though they are four positions better off than the corresponding stage last season, and remain well set for a significant improvement on last season’s seventh-place finish, their recent fall-out has generated understandable pessimism among the Green Army.

However, Derek sees the current campaign – whether it ends in automatic promotion, the play-off semi-final, or the final at Wembley – as an important step forward in the club’s recent history.

“From my point of view, I am delighted with the season we have had,” he said. “We have done exceptionally well this season. We’ve matched the points total we had last season; I think we’re six goals off scoring the most goals for 12 seasons at this football club; we have done well defensively; and we have got five games to push into the top three.


Martyn Starnes

The next two games away at Portsmouth and Leyton Orient will probably determine whether we're still competing to go up automatically or whether we are destined for the play-offs for the second successive season. ( can not see us even in the  play off's) 4 - 0 to Portsmouth

more new will follow later in the week

PORTSMOUTH FOOTBALL CLUB STATEMENT

Fans warned about pyrotechnics at matches
Portsmouth Football Club have warned any fan found to be in possession of a flare, firework or smoke canister in or around a football stadium will be banned from Fratton Park indefinitely and face criminal charges.

The offence also carries a possible prison sentence and a three-year football banning order as a minimum.

In the most serious cases, fans and players have been badly injured by their use, including head wounds and severe burns.

The Pompey Supporters’ Trust have also backed the stance and Blues manager Paul Cook has reinforced the message, saying their continued use could disrupt the club’s gathering promotion push.

His message comes after a smoke canister landed in the Dagenham & Redbridge goalmouth on Saturday after Michael Doyle’s equaliser. It held the game up for a couple of minutes as it was dealt with.

Paul said: “When I saw the smoke in the goalmouth after the goal, the team and I were annoyed and frustrated.

“We had just put Dagenham on the ropes and we wanted us to get back into them as soon as possible.

“Instead vital momentum was potentially lost and it could have cost us a vital three points. It has to stop, and stop now.”

Trust chair Ashley Brown added: “Thankfully we managed to get the win in the end on Saturday and no-one was hurt, but if this sort of behaviour continues the club will be subject to heavy fines or potentially even receive supporter or points related sanctions.

“The people who throw these, or in fact anything else at matches, are causing significant damage to the club they claim to support.”

Pompey chief executive Mark Catlin revealed the club have been reported to the Football Association over a number of incidents involving explosive devices this season.

He said: “Our security team liaise constantly with other clubs and the police. Other Pompey fans have already been in touch with the club providing information on this incident.

“The fans who did this will be caught, of that I am in no doubt, and when they are they will be banned. The club will also support a criminal prosecution of those identified.”

Home Tickets News

Seat release scheme for popular clash

There are only a limited number of tickets remaining for Pompey’s next home game against Plymouth on Saturday, April 16.

Seats have sold out in all areas of the ground except for the Family Section.

These are not available to buy online and fans in this area must be accompanied by a junior (under 17) supporter.

With the game heading for a complete sell-out, if you are a season ticket holder who cannot attend the game and would like to release your seat back to the club, then please email

You will need to state your name, seat details and the address where the season ticket is registered.

Please note that once you have given permission for the seat to be released, you will not be able to change your mind.

Portsmouth Football Club would like to thank any season ticket holders who agree to release their seats – this is greatly appreciated.

Portsmouth view on the game

Michael Doyle eyed locking horns with Plymouth Argyle and insisted: This is our biggest game for years.

The largest Fratton Park league crowd of the season is anticipated for the Pilgrims’ visit on Saturday.

Pitching fifth against sixth, the fixture could play a significant part in the race for automatic promotion.

Paul Cook’s men are five points adrift of the top three with a game in hand as the season draws to a fascinating finale.

Argyle is the archetypal six-pointer for the Blues, who presently trail the furthest among the five hopefuls chasing two spots.

They enter the clash on the back of three successive victories, most recently a 4-1 triumph over Dagenham & Redbridge.

And the inspiration for that crucial result believes the Plymouth match is one of the club’s most significant in a considerable time.

Doyle said: ‘I said to the lads before Dagenham it was one of the biggest games Pompey have had for such a long time.

[b]All you need to know about League Two clash[/b]

The battle for automatic promotion hots up this weekend as Pompey face fellow high-fliers Plymouth at Fratton Park.

Derek Adams’ side are currently sitting fifth in the table, but the Blues will be able to leapfrog them by collecting all three points.

A few weeks ago, Argyle looked certainties to secure a top three spot, sitting eight points clear of the chasing play-off pack at the end of February.

But they have lost five of their last eight fixtures to start slipping down the League Two standings.

They go into Saturday’s game on the back of successive defeats – including a 2-1 reverse at Exeter in the Devon derby.

The Pilgrims have, however, secured an impressive 10 victories on their league travels this term and are one of only three sides – including Pompey – to have won at leaders Northampton.

It was the Blues who came out on top when the sides met at Home Park all the way back in August.

Matt Tubbs and Gary Roberts both scored from the spot to give them a commanding advantage before Plymouth grabbed a late consolation.

Saturday’s visitors have not won at Fratton Park since 1989, with Pompey collecting 16 points from the last 18 available.

Conor Wilkinson is the only absentee for Pompey, as he is still sidelined with a groin injury.

Reuben Reid (thigh) is doubtful for the visitors, who will also be without Ryan Brunt (knee) and Josh Simpson (hamstring), but Tyler Harvey has been recalled from a spell on loan at Bath.

A minute silence

                                     
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]



Pompey and Plymouth Argyle will mark the centenary of the Battle of Jutland with a minute’s silence ahead of the fixture between the clubs on Saturday.

The tribute to more than 8,500 sailors who died on both sides will mark this pivotal sea battle of the First World War, which occurred from May 31-June 1 in 1916.

A spokesperson for the two clubs said: “Given the Dockyard heritage of the respective cities, it was felt this game was an appropriate occasion to commemorate the event.

Judging by what I saw last weekend, I think they'll win at a canter. At this stage, nothing but 3 points is good enough for us, so hopeful Wylde gets picked to provide some width - last Saturday Forster was our main wide threat and as well as he played, he's hardly a winger. Argyle need to at least try to put them on the back foot.

Suspect Adams will go one up top though and try to hit them on the break, as that's what's worked for other teams at Fratton this season by the sound of it.

2-0 down after 27 minutes for me.

Hoping for something to keep the season alive, not least because I'm going on Tuesday!

At least Mellor will give us some width on the right. Struggling to see much on the left.

So it's Matt on his lonesome upfront, Carey at the top of a diamond, Boateng left, Houghton right, McHugh at the base.

Physically that's quite a meaty line-up.

Purrington & Mellor in for Sawyer and Forster weakens us massively.

It'd be just like Argyle to go and get a result.

Boateng looked injured for about 15 minutes before he was subbed last week. Hope he's recovered.
