"I want us to fight for the shirt"

Head Coach previews Plymouth Argyle clash

Dermot Drummy knows that a positive performance is needed when the Reds host Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

The clash against the Pilgrims provides an opportunity to erase the memories of last weekend's defeat to Newport County, and the Head Coach insisted that he's looking for a reaction.

"The lads know my feelings on the performance last weekend and we have to move on," he said.

"We want to come out the blocks well and I'll be telling the lads that every game now is like a cup final for us, and I mean that.

"I want us fighting for the shirt and I didn't like the performance last week - but I take that as my responsibility."

An appeal against Josh Yorwerth's red card in the defeat at Rodney Parade last weekend was dismissed on Thursday and the defender now faces a three match ban as a result.

Drummy revealed that there could be a few changes to the side when Derek Adams' men visit the Checkatrade Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

"We had a watch back of the incident and appealed the decision, but to no avail today," he continued.

"Mark (Connolly) trained really well and he'll be back involved on Saturday.

"There'll be a couple of changes in the squad, and that's to give players an opportunity who've been knocking on my door."
