John Sheridan glowing in praise for Pools ahead of weekend encounter.
Plymouth boss John Sheridan has warned his team they will face a tough test at The Vic against a Pools side who he fancies to have a say at the top of League Two.
Sheridan deployed his former Chesterfield assistant Tommy Wright to watch Pools in action ahead of this weekend’s clash at The Vic, and he revealed that his trusted friend was impressed with what he saw.
“We have had them watched three or four times and the reports I have got back off Tommy Wright is that that they are a good team and he expects them to be up there at the end of the season,” the Pilgrims chief told the Plymouth Herald.
“Every time they have had a bad result, they have been unfortunate not to get something out of the game.
“I have watched them myself. They play at a good tempo and they are getting a bit of belief now.
“They started the season poorly but have stuck to their guns. They haven’t changed much and are starting to get results.
“When you get a few wins you seem to find yourself pushing up the table because I think it’s a very evenly-matched league, I really do.”
