John Sheridan: Plymouth need to remain calm to reach play-offs

Plymouth Argyle have won 46 of the 122 games that John Sheridan has taken charge of

Concentration will be the key to adding three points to Plymouth Argyle's League Two play-off push, says boss John Sheridan.

Argyle face struggling Tranmere Rovers on Saturday but will be looking to boost their own promotion aspirations.

"I don't even have to speak to the players, it's down to them now," Sheridan told BBC Radio Devon.

"We've got good home form and we've got to concentrate on the performance and getting three points."

Saturday's game will have an impact on both ends of the table as Tranmere look to avoid dropping into the Conference, something Sheridan's players are aware of.

"They know the importance of the game and the Tranmere players are the same, they're coming to get a result so they can survive in the Football League.

"But I'm not bothered about them, it's about the importance of us winning the game."

To seal a play-off spot, Argyle will need results to go in their favour and hope they better promotion-rivals Luton Town's results in the final two games of the season.

"It's obvious we want Luton to be beaten but we have to concentrate on ourselves and make sure we get the three points - if Luton lose at Southend, it would be even better for us."
