We can climb League Two table, says Plymouth Argyle manager John Sheridan
JOHN SHERIDAN believes Plymouth Argyle can continue to push up the League Two table.
The Pilgrims moved up from 17th to ninth position after their 1-0 victory over Rochdale at Home Park on Saturday.
Sheridan reckons there is scope for further improvement in the coming weeks.
The Pilgrims are away to Morecambe this coming Saturday before hosting Bristol Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers in back-to-back matches at Home Park next month.

Sheridan said: "We have just got to try to get on a run now.
"I believe we could be in a really healthy position in three games' time, if the lads believe it.
"When you are winning football matches, it just builds confidence. You feel better in yourself when you have a won a game and you have jumped some places."
Argyle's victory against Rochdale came courtesy of a 25th-minute penalty from Reuben Reid.
The spot-kick was awarded when Marvin Morgan chased after a loose ball and tumbled over as Rochdale goalkeeper Josh Lillis came out to challenge him.
Rochdale manager and former Argyle defender Keith Hill thought it was a 'soft' penalty.
Hill suggested referee Brendan Malone had been influenced by the 'Green Army', who were aggrieved by some earlier decisions which went against Argyle.
Sheridan said: "It looked like a penalty, but I was far away. I'm pleased Reuben scored."
Argyle created enough chances to have been more than 1-0 up at half-time but Rochdale were on top after the restart.
They applied a lot of pressure in the second period and substitute Joe Bunney went close to an equaliser with a glancing header in stoppage time.
Sheridan was grateful for the support of the 'Green Army' as the Pilgrims clung onto their slender lead.
He said: "We were on the back foot towards the end and the fans were getting behind the team.
"I have told the players, if they give effort, the fans will stick with us all the way."
