  4. Brent: Argyle success is stuff of dreams

    Plymouth Argyle chairman James Brent says he could barely dream of the Pilgrims' current success when he took over in 2011.


    He said: "The focus at the time was not to get relegated to the Conference league.

    "It was very much keeping the ship afloat at that point."

    Hundreds of Argyle fans are expected to line the streets of Plymouth as the city hosts an open-top bus parade to celebrate the club's promotion back into League One.

    Argyle narrowly missed out on the League Two title at the weekend, after drawing 1-1 at Grimsby Town.

  17. Premiership standard scary, says Baxter

    James Law

    BBC Sport Online

    Exeter head coach Rob Baxter says it is "scary" that his side needed a record-breaking eight bonus-point wins in a row to seal a home play-off semi-final.

    They finished the regular Premiership season on a 15-game unbeaten run, but only secured second on the final day.

    "It shows you the quality of the Premiership and how well we've had to do," Baxter told BBC Radio Devon. "It's still a bit scary when you look back and think. If any one of those eight successive bonus-point wins had been losses, we might well be sitting here in third and going away in the semi-final."
