Sheridan fancies return to Wembley
Manager John Sheridan has promised that Plymouth Argyle will take their participation in the Football League Trophy "very seriously" this season.
Sheridan won the competition for with Chesterfield in 2011-12 and would relish a return to Wembley with the Pilgrims. However, Argyle have been handed a difficult first-round tie at Cheltenham Town in the week commencing September 2.
Cheltenham will be out to make amends for their 3-1 League Two defeat to the Pilgrims at Whaddon Road last Saturday. Sheridan said: "I have done well in the competition previously, and it's a big competition for us.
"Realistically, it's the only cup we have got a chance of winning, and we will give it a really good go.

"It might give me an opportunity to throw one or two players in, but I will look at it and take it very seriously."
Midfielder Dean Parrett has started a trial at Championship club Derby County, after spending a couple of days with Argyle last week.
The 21-year-old, who was released by Tottenham Hotspur at the end of last season, played for the Rams' Under-21 side in a 2-1 defeat at Crewe Alexandra yesterday.
Parrett lined up for Plymouth in a behind-closed-doors friendly game at Yeovil Town last Tuesday, which ended in a 2-0 defeat for the Pilgrims. He had a loan spell with Argyle as a Spurs player in the 2010-11 season, scoring one goal in ten games.
