Sheridan: We're in with a shout

John Sheridan admits play-off chasing Plymouth are looking onwards and upwards after beating Wycombe 1-0 at Adams Park.

Argyle captain Conor Hourihane's fifth goal of the season shortly after half-time on Tuesday night was enough to end the home side's sixth-match unbeaten run.

As for the Pilgrims, they are now only outside the League Two play-off places on goal difference and boss Sheridan believes they can climb even higher.

"The important thing is trying to get three points from every game we play," he said. "It was nice to get the win after the disappointment on Saturday [a 2-1 loss to Bristol Rovers] and keep a clean sheet.

"Wycombe are playing well of late and have got some good players in the team but I think we deserved to win.

"In the second half, I just wanted them to pass it a little bit more. We wanted to move the ball quicker and get the full-backs into the game more and I think we did that in the second half. We had a bit more belief and we braver.

"All we're trying to do is keep ourselves around the play-off places. That's what we've done and one or two results have gone our way so we're in with a shout.

"We have some excellent games coming up against a couple of sides above us. Scunthorpe and Chesterfield are both flying but we'll go there in good form ourselves and believing we can win it."
