Argyle legend Danny Salman's hard-hitting column
'BE POSITIVE and grab the chance you have worked so hard to give yourselves', would be my advice to the Argyle players on Saturday.
Vitally, Argyle have claimed three wins out of their last four League Two matches – two of which were against sides in the play-offs.
Crucially, it should mean Argyle go to Burton Albion at the weekend with confidence and in a fearless frame of mind.
Although I've been critical of the club for allowing Argyle to – as I see it, not just as an ex player but as a concerned supporter – continue to struggle in English football's lowest league.

In my view, now is not the time to hark on about the style of play or the reasons why this state of affairs should not happen again, but to be positive and urge Argyle on to victory in their remaining four matches.
Argyle have seen off Exeter City and Cheltenham in their last two home games, and the latter victory was well deserved.
But we're not out of the woods yet as only one of the last four fixtures are at home – and that's not a given as Rotherham, who can sniff promotion, are the last visitors to Home Park.
After Burton, it's Chesterfield away – another tough ask – on Tuesday and finally, on April 27, Rochdale at their place.
Hopefully, by adopting a bold and brave approach by the time we go to Spotland at the end of the month, any fears of relegation out of the Football League will be but a painful memory.
Neither Exeter, who we beat 1-0 in front of more than 13,000, nor Cheltenham, again with a big crowd present, looked anything special, to be honest.
But congratulations to John Sheridan and the players. They can only beat what's in front of them and do what we have cried out for, for so long – three points and a platform to build their survival upon.
Burton, too, have had their dodgy moments lately but will be playing us with one foot in League One and with the best home record in thedivision.
A few months ago, I wouldn't have given Argyle much of a chance of an upset on Saturday.
But thanks to goals from Jason Banton and match-winning displays at the back from Guy Branston, the whole team has been given a lift.
Banton has been a breath of fresh air and his ability to score is rubbing off as other players are starting to have faith in themselves and have a pop at goal.
Well done to John for bringing the Crystal Palace loanee down to Home Park and also for giving Branston a chance to prove he has still got plenty to offer.
Branston is a no-nonsense and old school centre: what you see is what you get and in the last two home games, he has been outstanding.
I've singled out those two as reasons why Argyle have become not only difficult to beat but also a threat at the other end of the park.
But it's a team game and Argyle's players, thanks to John and his coaching staff, have turned Argyle into a fighting unit.
