Plymouth Argyle boss John Sheridan ready for the Sky Bet League 2 Play-Offs

5 May 2015

Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan is relishing his side's Play-Off semi-final clashes with Wycombe Wanderers after beating promoted Shrewsbury Town 2-0.

Even allowing for the absence of key duo Reuben Reid, Argyle's top scorer, and the influential Lewis Alessandra, Plymouth delivered a fine display to become only the second side this season to pick up three points at the Greenhous Meadow.

First-half goals from Bobby Reid and Kelvin Mellor wrapped up the points, with Sheridan now looking forward to the chance to go up via the Play-Offs.

"It will be a tough game," said Sheridan, on facing a Wycombe side that finished 13 points above them in the table. "It didn't matter who we were playing, I'm expecting a tough game.

"We'll prepare properly all week for what's going to be a good atmosphere, a full house. We're at home first so we would like to go into the game and try and get an advantage."

Sheridan agreed his side could not be going into the Play-Offs on the back of a more impressive performance after toppling a Shrewsbury side who had started the day hoping to pip Burton Albion to the Sky Bet League 2 title.

"Coming up against a team who were going for the title, I thought we were top drawer from the first whistle," added the Plymouth boss. "I thought our first-half performance was really, really good.

"We created chances and caught them on the break. Our work ethic was very good and it suited us a little bit because they played the same system as us."
