CLOUGH BELIEVES PLYMOUTH HAVE QUALITY DESPITE LEAGUE POSITION

19 October 2018

THE Brewers should not take the challenge of Plymouth lightly tomorrow, according to manager Nigel Clough.

The Pilgrims are currently bottom of League One and have won just once this season. They have picked up four draws, which has prevented them from being cut adrift on the relegation zone, although they could be pushed to six points from safety if they lose and one of Bradford or Bristol Rovers win this weekend.

Clough believes the quality in the Plymouth squad does not reflect where they are in the table and admits that Saturday will be the first time he will have met Derek Adams, who manages Plymouth.  

He said: “I have not come across him (Adams). I saw them at the end of last season, I think it was Scunthorpe, and they started as though it had been a long trip in the first-half. In the second-half, they attacked Scunthorpe and were very unlucky not to get anything out of the game.

“I think that they have got players, the likes of Sarcevic and so on, that are more than capable on their day. 

“(Adams) only came down from Scotland a couple of years ago, I think, so it will be the first time (that the pair meet) on Saturday.”
