Plymouth Argyle will not give up on trying to win the League Two title, according to defender Gary Sawyer.
The Pilgrims are third behind Northampton Town, who have won 11 of their last 13 games to go 13 points clear of Plymouth.
"If you look at it on paper, it looks like it is over," said the full-back.
"But until it's done we won't give that up, we won't just let them take it, but obviously they've had a fantastic run lately and picked up so many points."
Sawyer has played 39 times for Plymouth this season and has seen the Pilgrims squander what was a five-point lead at the top of League two in the middle of November.
But the 30-year-old, who re-joined Argyle at the start of the season after five years away, says reeling in Northampton will be a very difficult task.
He told BBC Radio Devon: "They're a good side, they beat us as well so you can't take that away from them. To get that many points at this stage of the season, it's some going.
"But until they're champions we won't stop trying to chase them."
