Speaking about the game, manager Steven Pressley said: “I’ve watched Plymouth’s game from last weekend and they played some great stuff, but I’ve got great confidence in us.

“If we go about the game in the way we did on Tuesday and at Newport then I think we’ve got a real chance.

“They’re a very good side with some real match winners in their team. They’re a team who are expected to be challenging in the top three in the league, so it’s another really tough game for us.

“Like I say, we’ve performed well away from home recently, and we gave one of our best performances of the season at Newport, so it will take a performance like that again to get the result.”

With the players, staff and fans all desperate for a win, he added: “I accept everything that comes with this position.

“I will continue to work tirelessly to improve the team and I’ve got no issues just now. I know how hard the players are working, the stats show me that.

RACE NIGHT: Join CUSG for a fun evening in November

“We need to tidy up on a couple of things, but the players are giving it their best. It’s the margins. We have to do better at the weekend, but if you look at the Crewe game Adam [Collin] didn’t have a save to make, but we lost four goals.

“Those are the margins we’re talking about where we have to tidy things up.”

“It’s obviously a long trip and one of the hardest things about it is looking after the players who won’t play,” he commented. “We’ve got the group who played on Tuesday who were off on Wednesday and who then did recovery on Thursday.

“Friday is a travel day so, if they don’t play on Saturday, they’re then into three or four days without doing much. That’s why the ones who don’t play have been our big area of concentration so that they remain ready and in a good frame of mind.”

“As for the game, they have some effective players,” he continued. “They’re unbeaten in four and they’ve picked up some very good away results.

“They’ve been hard to beat at home but I’m sure they would have liked to have turned some of the draws they’ve had into wins. They have good threats but we know we can be a match for them.

“We’ll have fans making the journey expecting us to win and that’s certainly what we’ll try to do for them.”
