Plymouth Argyle boss Derek Adams has given Nick Daws and Scunthorpe ammunition for tonight, after it was revealed he did not take part in the Pilgrims lap of honour on Saturday, as he is certain it wasn’t their final home game of the season.
Adams’ side ran out impressive 2-1 winners over fourth-placed Rotherham United, courtesy of a late penalty.
Despite the win, Argyle are two points behind United in seventh, and three points behind fifth-placed Charlton.
Talking to the Plymouth Herald after the Millers game, Adams spoke about his absence on the pitch at full time, despite his players taking part in thanking their fans.
“I wasn’t out there. I was waiting for the play-off game before we do that.
“My staff and I waited inside because we will do that after the play-off game.”
That’s some confidence for a man who takes his Argyle side on a long trip to the Iron tonight, before another away game at Gillingham on Saturday.
Plymouth’s form in their last five away matches is: Win one, draw two, lost two.
With that said, if Argyle do win their final two games, they are guaranteed a play-off place – but Adams confidence does seem entirely over the top.
